Apple Music, a subscription service for Apple music, launched in the U.S. in May of last year, but the company’s popularity has not been without its ups and downs.
In October, Apple Music became available only in the United States and Canada.
The company has since expanded to other markets, including Mexico and China, and has now signed a deal to distribute Spotify in Japan.
But Spotify has been a hot topic in recent months, with its popularity on the rise.
A recent study by New York University’s Center for Media, Technology, and Public Policy found that a growing number of American students were starting to switch to Spotify, with some turning to the service as a way to listen to music they might otherwise skip.
The study found that as Spotify grew, so did the number of Americans switching to Spotify.
Some experts, however, say that the shift in students to Spotify may be a more recent phenomenon, with many of the students switching from their regular music to music from the service.
The researchers also found that many students were switching to other streaming services, such as Pandora, Spotify, or SoundCloud.
“The trend of students switching to different platforms and services appears to be evolving in a much more rapid fashion than students were before,” the study found.
In the end, though, the shift to streaming may have more to do with students’ growing interest in the music than it does with a change in music or technology.
According to a recent survey conducted by the Associated Press and Nielsen, the percentage of students who use Spotify has steadily increased in the last three years.
The survey found that 37 percent of students surveyed said they were using Spotify in the past year.
In 2017, 42 percent of college students reported using Spotify, and the majority of them were also in the 30 to 34 age group.
“Students seem to be getting more interested in using Spotify because of the high quality and variety of songs that the service has to offer,” Dr. Mark Rippert, the senior vice president of media at the AP and Nielsen research firm, told TechCrunch.
“They also seem to want to use Spotify because it’s easier to stream than downloading or streaming.”
While Spotify has attracted a lot of attention, many other services are still struggling to gain traction.
A large number of users of Spotify’s parent company, Rdio, are currently using third-party music services, and it has recently been announced that Google Music will not be expanding its service to the U of A’s music-centric campus.
Even with the growth of Spotify, many students are still unsure of what to do if they decide to sign up.
“I don’t really know where to go from here,” student Emma E. said.
“Is it just like a new music-streaming service that I don’t know how to use yet?
Or do I need to go to a major label, like Universal Music or Warner Music, and learn how to download the music and stream it?
Or maybe I need a streaming service that offers my favorite artists and I want to listen on a tablet?”
Dr. Rippetts comments on Spotify students’ struggles with music streaming are not surprising.
The majority of students, he said, are likely to be in the middle of an academic year, and while many of them are in the process of deciding where to spend their summer vacation, many of these students are also struggling with their own musical tastes.
“In many ways, it’s the ‘what ifs’ of it, but I do think there’s a risk of this trend of having a lot more students using music-specific services,” he said.
