Although it surpasses Spotify, how much does it really matter?

Recently, Apple Music reached a significant milestone. Apple said that there are now 100 million songs available on its streaming music service.

Given the considerable increase from the 30 million at the time of the debut in June 2015, it is likely that you will locate the new songs you're looking for.

The business also claims to be adding 20,000 new tunes to the site daily concerned about not being able to discover their favorite record.

The 100 million milestone might give Apple Music an advantage over competitors. The biggest rival Spotify claims to have "over 80 million tracks" as of this writing.

Even if that's still a pretty robust variety, it does suggest that you'll find indie favorites or backlist titles on Apple's platform more readily than you could elsewhere.

Of course, the real question is whether or not that benefit justifies switching from a different provider.

It's unclear how many songs—including unique DJ mixes and live sessions—are exclusives. For more information, we've asked Apple.

If you can't get enough of a favorite musician, such unusual offers could be alluring, but they won't necessarily win you over if you're content to listen to album cuts.

The 100 million song statistic provides Apple bragging rights, if nothing more, since it can point to a larger collection that would entice first-time streamers
