With Rdio about to disappear and Songza soon to be wholly absorbed by Google Play Music, Spotify is looking more and more like the big dog in the streaming space. But how much do you know about where the company came from? The Telegraph would like to fill in those blanks.
In just under a decade, Spotify has grown from a small Swedish start-up into a hugely popular global music streaming service.
Founded in 2006, the company is now said to be worth US$8 billion, with over 75 million users signed up to the platform, and access to 30m songs.
Co-founders Daniel Ek and Martin Lorentzon officially launched the company in 2008 and have since made over 30 million tracks available to users.
