In the age of digitization, various music streaming services are popping up and constitute fierce competition between each other, among which, Spotify, with 170 million active users, 70 million of whom are paying subscribers, is the most popular streaming music service around the world right now.
Spotify offers almost everything that all of its competitors have.
