What Streaming Services Integrate With Stem?

Stem currently works with all major music streaming services. For example, we have integrated with Amazon, Apple Music, iTunes, Deezer, Google Play, Pandora, Saavn, Spotify, Tidal, YouTube Content ID & YouTube Art Tracks. We know how important it is to cover all bases.


What Is Stem's Minimum Lead Time to Guarantee My Content Goes Live When I Want It to?

Stem requires a minimum lead time of five business days to ensure your content goes live on your selected platforms.

If you would like to pitch for playlisting consideration, you must submit the release to our system 30 days prior to your intended release date.

If you upload your content after the listed deadlines, our system will still deliver it to all of your selected platforms. However, we cannot guarantee your release will go live on each platform by your intended release date.


Can I Edit My Splits & Metadata After Uploading to Stem?

Yes, users can edit their metadata. However, we suggest that all shareholders have agreed to their splits before uploading. Our system reverts a contract to 'Pending' when the content uploader edits splits. As a result, all shareholders must accept their splits again. This can postpone payment for at least one month.
