Which streaming music service has the most tracks?
Recently Apple Music announced that it was home to 100 million songs, with 20,000 artists uploading tracks every day. But even that does not mean that Apple is the streaming music with the most songs.
Thanks to its user-uploaded library, Soundcloud is #1 with 300 million tracks.
Amazon Music, Tidal, and Deezer all reportedly offer 90 million tracks.
The last reports from Spotify put its library at 82 million.
UPDATE: YouTube Music now hosts 100 million songs, a representative told Hypebot Tuesday.
Overall, 100,000 new songs are uploaded to music streaming platforms every day. This staggering number comes just 18 months after Spotify reported that it was ingesting 60,000 new tracks daily.
Bruce Houghton is Founder and Editor of Hypebot and MusicThinkTank and serves as a Senior Advisor to Bandsintown which acquired both publications in 2019. He is the Founder and President of the Skyline Artists Agency and a professor for the Berklee College Of Music.
