How we count streams

See your stream counts in Spotify for Artists.

  • Song stream: Counted when someone listens for 30 seconds or more
  • Release stream count: All song streams from the release added up
    Note: If a song appears on multiple releases, it counts towards the stream count on every release.
  • All-time streams: The total number of times your song or release has been streamed on Spotify. Music video streams (30 seconds or more) count towards the all-time streams for the associated song and any release the song is on. In Spotify for Artists, all-time streams is currently the only stat that counts music video streams.
  • Downloaded music: We count streams when the listener goes online (which must happen at least once every 30 days)

Your total streams in Spotify for Artists include songs where you’re credited as a main artist or remixer.
