The number was reportedly confirmed by Cue in French publication Numerama in Paris. It is up from 50 million that had been reported by Apple in May of last year, and also includes users of the service that are currently on a free trial.
Rival Spotify still holds the crown with over 100 million paying subscibers worldwide to its premium tier services. Spotify also counts users who are on a free trial of the service so long as they have provided credit card or other payment details up front.
When you include those who do not pay a subscription fee, Spotify claims more than 217 million users worldwide.
