Music streaming company Spotify is in discussions to acquire rival SoundCloud, the Financial Times reported on Wednesday.

Spotify has faced competition, as companies like Apple and Pandora have beefed up their offerings. Apple Music, for instance, beat Spotify in a customer satisfaction survey released by J.D. Power on Wednesday.
