Sorry, the stat doesn’t get any more vague than that, but Spotify has announced in a celebratory one-year-since-launch blog post that its service is streaming billions of tracks every month, and that “tens of thousands” of new users are joining every day.”Over the past year we’ve worked hard to continue to improve Spotify,” continues the post. “We’ve more than doubled the size of our music catalogue over the year and work continues to add more content each week. We’ve added features to allow you to buy your favorite music, play music when your connection drops out and most significantly to take Spotify with you while on the move.”Spotify has done a marvellous job of creating a buzz around its service in the last year, and much of that buzz is justified by its excellent user experience. Of course, with an industry hat on, news that billions of songs are being streamed raises those perennial questions around licensing payments, and how soon Spotify will be making enough money in advertising and subscriptions to balance them out.
