Mobile-industry research site Telecompaper has published some new figures on the popularity of music-streaming apps in the Netherlands. It pegs Spotify as the leader, with its app now installed on 33% of Dutch smartphones, according to the company’s latest Dutch Apps Market report. It suggests that Apple Music, on 5%, is some way behind.
Telecompaper also claims that around 60% of the Spotify app’s users are using it on a daily basis, compared to 25% for Apple Music.
We’re always slightly wary of figures comparing Spotify and Apple Music, due to the confusion (as misreported by certain other research firms and then repeated widely by tech sites) between users of Apple’s default ‘Music’ app, and actual subscribers to its streaming service. In this case, however, Telecompaper appears to be correctly (for the purposes of a Spotify comparison) focusing on the latter.
