Apple said Eddy Cue, senior vice president of internet software and services, disclosed the most recent subscriber number for Apple Music at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

"Listeners describe music in different ways, and understanding that information will help improve, extend, and confirm the information that describes music on Spotify", a Spotify spokesperson explained to Variety. Unlike Spotify, Apple offers a three-month free trial before subscribers are hit with a $9.99 monthly subscription fee. Earlier this month, Spotify announced it is planning to list on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker SPOT, targeting a $1 billion direct public offering. The company revolutionized the music industry with its iPod and iTunes products although as consumer trends shifted towards streaming and Apple fell further behind, most realized it was just a matter of time before Apple offered such a service. However, Apple Music and Spotify's combined subscribers only touch 100 million.
