Apple Music competing with Spotify

This new announcement comes just days after Spotify revealed that it had crossed 100 million premium subscribers. Spotify crossed the milestone in the month of April. Even though the global numbers are in favor of Spotify, the story is somewhat different in the United States. Apple Music paid subscription count crossed the Spotify Premium subscription count in the United States earlier this year. Apple Music has about 28 million paid subscribers here while Spotify is trailing behind with 26 million.

The updated subscriber number comes just a month after Apple WWDC 2019. The company revealed some improvements to Apple Music in iOS 13, the upcoming version of iOS. As previously noted, it will come with time-synced lyrics in iOS 13. This will act similar to a karaoke feature. Cue even added that Apple employees manually entered the lyrics for the feature instead of outsourcing this to a third party.
