Spotify is a Swedish music, podcast, and video streaming service, launched in October 2008 by startup Spotify AB, that provides digital rights management–protected content from record labels and media companies. It is available in most of Europe, the Americas, Australia, New Zealand, and limited Asian countries and territories. Spotify has apps available for most modern devices, including Microsoft Windows and Apple macOS computers, Android and iOS smartphones and tablets, and has "Spotify Connect" streaming functionality that lets users listen to music through a range of entertainment systems. Music can be browsed or searched by artist, album, genre, playlist, and record label. Users can create, edit and share playlists, as well as share tracks on social networks, and make collaborative playlists with other users. Spotify provides access to over 30 million songs, with more music being added every day. As of June 2016, Spotify has 100 million monthly active users, and as of September 2016, it has 40 million paying subscribers.
