As detailed in a new piece from Billboard, Apple Music has officially crossed the milestone of having 20 million paying users. The achievement comes 17 months after Apple Music first launched, but growth numbers still lag behind Spotify…

In 2016 alone, Spotify has added around 12 million paying subscribers, going from 28 million at the end of 2015 to 40 million this year. Apple Music, on the other hand, has added 10 million, increasing from 10 million at the end of 2015 to 20 million this time around… More at 9 to 5 Mac.

Good numbers for Apple- a 50% increase is impressive and offers hope that Spotify is catchable in the relatively near future.
