David Pak, previous CEO of eMusic, commented on CNN about the war between Spotify and Apple Music.

The Spotify app is also now available in the Google Play Store for Android phones. Cue said Apple has 8 million subscribers now in the free trial period, the first time Apple has disclosed the number of trial users. Spotify has over 71 million premium subscribers as of December 31, 2017. Spotify is offering a one month free trial as did Apple Music although Deezer is offering a three months free trial. Naspers also recently launched music streaming platform Joox, from China's Tencent, in which it holds a 33.2% stake.

However, Ozil wouldn't be denied his 50th EPL assist for long. "The spirit and desire was good". It shows a huge level of motivation and intelligence, and he shows plenty of that.

Spotify's enormous lead over Apple notwithstanding, some industry observers believe that Apple Music may catch up to and overtake Spotify in just a few months because it appears to be growing at a much faster clip. Apple's senior vice president of internet software and services, Eddy Cue, passed along the latest stats at the annual SXSW in Austin, Texas. Apple has been competing with Amazon.com, Inc. "Spotify... had a great headstart and built a great product", Pakaman said.

In response, Cue said kindly that "I think Spotify is doing just fine", prompting chuckles from the SXSW audience. Recent research from VC firm Loup Ventures found that the HomePod had only a 3 percent penetration of the smart-speaker market as of February 2018, compared to 23 percent for Google Home and 55 percent for Amazon Echo devices.
