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 of 30 seconds or more count toward the all-time stream count of the associated song and any release it's 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.
