Eddy Cue, who is shadowing the roll-out of the project, said in August that 11 million people were on the trail version, thus according to the figures released, 60% have chosen to extend the trail period and sign up for the paid service. Apple Music still has a long road ahead if it plans to be a market leader in the field, in comparison Spotify, the current leading music streaming service, has 75 million active users and 20 million subscribers.
