Long gone are the days when downloading music took hours, navigating through the traps of malware-infested pop-ups to finally have music on your computer or phone. Music fans no longer need to spend hours searching for a song and downloading it from dubious websites. Apps like Spotify and Apple Music have made it easy, fast and efficient to listen to music on a whim, even without Wi-Fi or data.
According to Statista, Spotify users have increased tenfold from early 2015 to 2022 with 182 million Premium listeners worldwide as of June 2022, showing the popularity of the music streaming app even for the paid version. The only feature that is worth it is its download option.
