How minutes are counted


How minutes are counted


Just curious!!

I keep hearing about this rule saying that listening to 30 seconds of a song counts it as a stream.  If I listen to the first 30 seconds of a song and move somewhere else, do the 30 seconds count toward my Wrapped minutes or is the song's whole duration counted because it was a "stream?"  Let me know if you have an answer or if this makes sense!

Hey @saxophoner101


Thanks for searching for the answer you need here! 

Listening to a track for at least 30 seconds will be counted as a stream and it's expected to be included in your listening stats.
