Although the cumulative number of Apple Music subscribers has still not exceeded Spotify, Apple's streaming service continues with impressive growth. Last time we heard, Apple Music boasts over 56 million paid subscribers, an impressive figure, as the service is not even four years old at this time.
Also impressive is that an increasing number of Android users have shown interest in giving Apple Music a test run. According to the latest data from Sensor Tower the number of Apple Music installations from the Google Play store hit a record 3.8 million in the first quarter of 2019.

Cumulatively more than 40 million Android users have installed Apple Music over the past few years. An impressive figure to be sure is to emphasize that the 40 million figure does not refer to subscriptions. Many users – both on Android and iOS – will of course install Apple Music without becoming a paid subscriber. Nevertheless, it says that the cumulative number of paid subscriptions increases as the number of installations increases.
While Apple's "It & # 39; s Showtime" event focused entirely on the company's new subscription video, game and news offering, its flagship music service, Apple Music, silently passed another milestone. Sensor Tower Store Intelligence estimates show that 40 million Android users worldwide have now installed the Apple Music app from Google Play, and we expect the current quarter to be the best service yet for new users on the platform.
While the notion of Apple releases an Android app is still a bit bizarre, it's simply par for the course in today's market where universal access to services ranks highest. As a last point of interest, Spotify last month revealed that its streaming service has 96 million paid subscribers.
