With three successive quarters of speeding up MAU development and another year of record internet subscriber addition behind us, we are enthusiastic about the underlying trends in business. From history, we know that MAU growth tends to be a leading indication of future customer additions, which is then followed by income gains in both premium and ad-supported users. While we think these trends will continue progressing, we have been properly conservative regarding our 2020 assistance as our data, particularly about the benefits from podcasts, is still reasonably brand-new.
On the cost side, we have actually been constant in our messaging. Any decision to accelerate our investment in podcast and technology spend need to be deemed an indication of our belief that our strategy is having tangible outcomes. We have gained even more self-confidence in the data, particularly about the benefits from podcasts, and as an outcome, 2020 will be a financial investment year.
MONTHLY ACTIVE USERS (” MAUs”).
Overall MAUs grew 31% Y/Y to 271M, outshining the luxury of our guidance.
For the 3rd straight quarter, we have actually outshined the high end of our MAU guidance variety as top-of-funnel development continues to speed up. Seeing a re-acceleration in user development, at our scale, is a strong signal to us of the health of our organisation.
In previous quarters, weve spoken about ongoing innovation in the product experience. Some of these improvements yield immediate results, while others can take quarters to emerge into concrete benefits. With that in mind, in the last couple of quarters we have seen consistent enhancements in retention, in some cases importantly.
Lead to Q4 were bolstered by our marketing activity. On December 5, 2019, we launched the 5th annual year-end Spotify Wrapped campaign. The project ran through completion of the month and was improved in several essential ways this year. Importantly, we provided the consumer experience via the native mobile app (in addition to a website hosted on Spotify.com) for the very first time, broadened the reach of the campaign to 21 markets globally, highlighted insights from the past decade (in addition to the year), and offered a personalized Wrapped experience to all Spotify creators (inclusive of podcasters). Over 60M users engaged with Wrapped material this year, spurring over 40M shares of Wrapped stories and cards and over 6.5 B streams from Year/Decade Top Songs playlists.
Total revenue of EUR1,855 M grew 24% Y/Y in Q4. Consolidated income was in line with our expectations with Premium a little much better and Ad-Supported a little weaker than projection. Premium earnings was EUR1,638 M, up 24% Y/Y, while Ad-Supported revenue was EUR217M, up 23% Y/Y.
For the Premium organisation, average income per user (” ARPU”) of EUR4.65 in Q4 was down 5% Y/Y (down 6% not including the impact from FX rates). An essential portion of this decrease was driven by the extension of the complimentary trial duration throughout our entire product suite in the quarter. Not Including the effect of Trials & & Campaigns, ARPU would have decreased 2% Y/Y as an outcome of ongoing mix shifts in product and location.
Ad-Supported revenue development of 23% Y/Y was a velocity from Q3, however still fell a little brief of expectations. We had a slower start than typical in Q4, particularly in our Direct organisation, following some of the technical problems we had implementing a new order management system last quarter. By December, momentum in bookings had returned to typical levels however wasnt enough to compensate for the slower start to the quarter.
