Spotify Has Reached 30 Million Subscribers

In just nine short months, popular streaming service Spotify has reached another major milestone. In a tweet today, in honor of President Obama’s historic visit to Cuba, Spotify’s CEO Daniel Ek tweeted,

“We have 30 million Spotify subscribers, but none of them are in Cuba … yet. So cool to see Cuba opening up!”

Cuba currently lacks widespread internet access which is probably one of the major reasons the streaming service isn’t seeing any subscribers from the country however, more importantly, Ek gave away a major detail in his fun fact. Spotify has gained more than 10 million subscribers in the past nine months – which is huge – pushing the streaming service way into the lead of it’s struggling competitor, TIDAL which currently is only home to 10 million subscribers. Congrats, Spotify! What is your favorite streaming service? Sound off below, then click the gallery for more.
