Spotify Statistics and User Count (2023)
Last Updated on: June 18th, 2023
Spotify is a music streaming platform that allows users to listen to millions of songs, podcasts, and other audio content on demand. The company was founded in 2006 in Sweden and is headquartered in Stockholm.
Spotify offers both free and premium subscription options. With the free version, users can listen to music with occasional ads and limited functionality, while the premium version provides ad-free listening, unlimited skips, and offline listening capabilities.
Users can browse and search for music and other audio content on the platform, and create custom playlists or listen to pre-made playlists and radio stations. Spotify also offers personalized recommendations based on a user’s listening history and preferences.
In addition to music, Spotify has also expanded its offerings to include podcasts, with a large selection of shows available for streaming or download. The platform has also launched several original podcast series in recent years, and has become a major player in the podcasting industry.
As of 2022, Spotify claims to have over 450 million monthly active users across more than 90 markets worldwide. The company has become one of the most popular music streaming services in the world, and has had a significant impact on the music industry by changing the way people consume and discover music.

Please note that some of these numbers are easier to find than others. A few of these Spotify statistics come from their own reports, but some are based on news reports and not official company tallies. No information contained on DMR should be relied upon to make investment decisions. Basically, this is the best I can find and I don’t guarantee anything to be 100%.
