For the Premium business, average revenue per user (ARPU) was EUR4.86 in Q2, down less than 1% year-over-year. The downward pressure on ARPU continues to moderate, and Spotify continues to expect that ARPU declines through the remainder of the year will be in the low single digits.

The results’ outperformance was broad based, with most of its geographic regions growing faster than its expectations. The timing of certain global music releases yielded some incremental benefit, as did the company’s launch on PlayStation consoles across the Middle East and Latin America. The newest market India performed well and in line with expectations.

As a company, Spotify’s goal is to continually innovate by testing and learning from new product launches. During Q2, the company launched a number of new product initiatives across its major regions.

Spotify sees increased demand for podcast advertising after its recent acquisitions and continued development of owned and exclusive non-music audio content. While still relatively small, the company continues to expect fast revenue growth from podcasts through the remainder of 2019 and into 2020.
