Also, I read somewhere that as long as you stream more than 100 times for 30 seconds or more it counts?
Can anyone elaborate because there's another SG fan site who is running the 2 Become 1 Christmas campaign on Facebook.
For the UK, you can only stream a song 10 times a day that counts towards the UK charts, any extra after that wont count. So you can Stream a song 10 times a day for the 7 days of the chart (Fri-Thurs) which equates to 70 plays which is 0.7 of a sale.
For streams to count it must go beyond 30 seconds into the song and the sound on your spotify or whatever cant be on mute.
Though any streams over the 10 a day still count towards its overall plays on Spotify and their daily charts.
Thank you very much. So if you stream a song for 30 seconds, you can skip back to the beginning mid song and start again and 10 plays is 0.1 of sales. Great.
I would just stream the entire song just to be sure.
I'm also pretty sure it can't detect if your computer speaker is on mute, but obviously, it'll notice if you have your Spotify app on mute.
