Spotify appears to be feeling the heat from the impending launch of Apple Music. While it currently offers U.S. consumers a trial of three months for $0.99, most other countries are offered only a one month free trial – which it has just doubled to two months in a bunch of other countries.
It was confirmed this morning that Apple would be taking the same approach as Spotify in effectively paying labels a 35% royalty – half the going rate – during its own three-month free trial.
