Streaming was the largest form of US music consumption in 2016

Here are the most important numbers: In the US alone, 431 billion songs were streamed during 2016. That makes for 1.2 billion songs streamed per day, which even blows away the 734 million song downloads that were made during the whole year. In total, streaming is said to have seen a 76% growth over the year before, with service including Spotify and Apple Music drawing in huge numbers of new subscribers. – Adam Westlake, SlashGear
