Spotify Wraps Up Q2 with 108 Million Premium Subscribers
An increase of 8 million from the prior quarter
On July 31, streaming music provider Spotify reported it had reached 108 million premium subscribers at the end of the second quarter. This represents an increase of 8 million paying subscribers over the prior quarter and a 31% increase year-over-year. The total fell well within Spotify’s guidance of 107 million to 110 million. Monthly churn decreased to a record low 4.6%, but student subscriptions were lower than targeted. Spotify said it missed the target due to poor execution, not due to a soft market.
