Apple Music now boasts more US-based subscribers than Spotify, according to a new report from The Wall Street Journal. 

A February report revealed that Apple Music had 28 million paid subscribers in the U.S. versus Spotify’s 26 million. 

This highlighting a major turning point in the ongoing “streaming wars,” but Spotify isn’t exactly getting dominated.

Though Apple Music is leading in paid U.S. subscribers, Spotify still has a larger total of U.S. subscribers thanks to its free tier. It’s also worth noting that Spotify also leads when it comes to worldwide subscriptions. According to a December 2018 report, Spotify had around 207 million global users, 96 million of whom had paid subscriptions or were “in a trial period leading to a subscription.” Financial Times reports Apple Music, which does not have a free tier, has about 56 million paid subscribers worldwide.
