I have been using the Desktop Spotify App for over 2 years to stream. Sometimes, I also stream on the Spotify web player. But yesterday I saw a post from someone saying that streams from the Desktop Spotify app and/or the Spotify web player do NOT count towards Billboard charts (i.e. Hot 100, BB 200, Global 200 etc.). Is this true?

Hey @blackswan7

 

I believe these are the charts that count/include streaming numbers (From Billboard):

 

  • Hot 100 (songs)
  • Billboard 200 (albums)
  • Artist 100 (artists)
  • Streaming Songs (songs)
  • Social 50 (artists)

I'm fairly sure that there isnt a real difference between streams from albums or playlists but don't put your volume on mute while you stream because then it won't count. Hope this helps!
