Im Dezember habe ich für Musikmarkt einen Überblick über die neue Plattform von Spotify geschrieben.
Mittlerweile können erste Bilanzen zu den Spotify-Apps gezogen werden. GigaOm berichtet erfreuliche Zahlen:
Moodagent’s app, which offers instant mood-based playlists, has seen about 500,000 unique visitors since its launch on Spotify, according to the company’s head of communications Casper Falbe, who also gave me the following tidbits: “More than 60% of the visitors keep coming back to use Moodagent, but what’s most impressive is that 43% of the users have been active making playlists more than 200 times each.”
Soundrop’s genre-based chat room app has seen a total of 265,590 unique visitors since December 20. “We’ve had almost 32700 tracks added, 2.4 million tracks played,” Soundrop representative Thomas Ford told me via email, adding: “Soundrop users have played music for a total of 7453 days, 5 hours, 47 minutes and 20 seconds.” He also said that retention has been very good, with 30 percent of all users coming back within one day and 50 percent coming back within two days.
