Spotify is one of the most used applications when it comes to music players, since it has numerous tools that listeners tend to like, ranging from creating Playlists with your friends to downloading long podcasts. This is especially noticeable in fans of various groups or artists, since they are allowed support them through the platform.
It can even see how many plays a song by a specific artist has. So if you want to know how successful one of your favorite songs is, here we show you how to see how many reproductions it has.
Where is the play counter on Spotify?
Normally when we want to find the play count of a song, we search directly for the artist’s profile, where the 5 best-known songs of the same and the number of reproductions it has had so far are shown. However, we can also see the Spotify play count for a song that is not one of the top 5 most popular songs.
It should be taken into account that to access the playback counter, you will have to use the Spotify desktop application or enter the Spotify website, since from its mobile version this information is not available. Now, to see the number of reproductions of a song, you must search for the album or EP that it is part of.
You will be able to observe that inside the album tracklist, on one side is the number of reproductions that it maintains to date. You must keep in mind that this information is updated daily, so if you enter several times in a period of less than 24 hours, you will continue to see the same number of reproductions.
In the event that you cannot see this information, it is because the reproduction counter only appears once the song has more than 1000 reproductionsso it is difficult to know this information in alternative artists or with few listeners.
How to know the reproductions of a song in the top 10?
Spotify’s top 10 is a compilation of the 10 songs and artists most listened to in a period of time certain. This is information that is stored within the platform and that we can easily see through the various options presented by the list that Spotify publishes with the ‘Top 10’.
Therefore, if we want to know the exact amount of reproductions, we must first access the list organized by Spotify and then, in the three points that appear next to the song, we will look for the option of ‘Go to album’. It will immediately show us the tracklist and next to it, you will be able to see the number of reproductions that the specific song has.
What information do the statistics show in Spotify for artists?
Most of the Spotify users can find that many features are at their fingertips both interactive as statistics within the application, since we can not only follow other users, share Playlist, create your own playlists, etc.
But you will also be able to observe how many reproductions a song has and the album information, however, this data they won’t be as complete as it will be shown to the artist.
Since, despite wanting to have access to all the information about a song within Spotify, there are certain statistics that are only shown to the owning artist of the account that the album or EP was published. So, if you have an artist account, you will be able to access the statistics of the update frequency, the count of the Streams and the profile of the listeners.
When we upload music as an artist to Spotify, the application allows us the statistics of the music published with a certain frequency and that is because the application itself does not update its data live, but rather it does so on a daily basis. Every day at 3 PM Eastern Time (ET) all statistical data of Spotify songs are updated, regardless of where you are located, you must wait for the time offered by this server.
Every time a new song is uploaded, we can see its Streams within our profile. Clearly, we must take into account that every time a song plays for more than 30 seconds under certain guidelines, this will be counted within the Stream of it.
Although we must take into account that if the user who is listening to the song is listening to music without an Internet connectionit will be counted to the Stream automatically once the user connects again.
Listeners are those users who listen to the music of an artist in a set period of time, thus finding us with monthly listeners, frequent listeners and those who tend to listen to your music periodically, such as when they add a song to a Playlist. Those users who have listened to a single song for some reason, but who are not aware of it or are not within the established period of time, will not be counted as listeners of your profile.
To be able to see the profiles of the daily or monthly listeners, you only have to search the ‘Audience’ area and within the timeline that appears there, you can see the various profiles of the people who have listened to your music.
