Can anyone tell me how many songs from an album does it take to count for the whole album, can you skip songs you don't like and how long of the song do you have to listen to for it count?

I'm hoping I've made sense

even just one song of an album counts for a tiny fraction of an album sale (as well as a bigger fraction of a single sale), you don't have to listen the whole album, and it counts after 30 seconds.

Just to ask if the fourth most streamed song started to stream more than the third most streamed song from an album but the third most streamed song was already in the chart update. Which one would chart?

If the fourth most streamed increased enough to move into third place, that would chart!

How can they split Singles streaming sales from an album track with album sales?
Doas a song count twice, 1 time as Single sale & 1 time as album sale?

unfortunately yes, if you stream an album track (or a single not in the album's Top 2 most popular songs which get downweighted) it counts as 1/100th of a single sale and 1/1000th of an album sale.

1/100th = about 0,10£
How does this little amount can count as 1 sale? because download = 0,99£

Firstly I'm not sure where you get the 10 pence figure for one stream of a track from (I assume that's what you mean), as streaming a single track once will earn the record company/artist etc far less than 10 pence. Secondly the 1/100 is the fraction of one sale that it counts as (i.e. they need 100 of those 1/100ths to be able to count as one sale) so it is not counting as one sale.

I know this has been discussed many times before but it still buggs me so.... I am wondering how they count streams to albums "sales". This week both Queen greatest hits were inside top 40 (#12 and #24), track list is pretty similar on both albums. So I wonder, if someone stream those tracks which are on both albums, where those streams are added to?

Can someone tell me if there is another way to purchase a song other than iTunes and counts towards OCC? Do they count any other services?

Sales from any legitimate UK site (generally including an artist's own website) will count.

Do they count Amazon and Google Play for example?

Does anyone here know whether or not the 10 streams cap has been changed or if itís still the same? Itís not listed on the Official Rules document and I saw someone on Twitter say that they asked and it couldnít be confirmed.

I don't see why they'd change that particular rule, or there'd be nothing stopping Stans and labels from streaming 24/7 to inflate sales. I certainly haven't heard anything about that rule being changed anyhow.

Sorry if I've missed an answer to this - I've been trying to find one.

"Official Charts will take the 12 most streamed tracks from the standard version of the album, the top two songs will be down-weighted in line with the average of the rest."

Why does it specify standard version of the album? Does this mean if, say, the standard version has 10 tracks and the deluxe 12, those extra two songs do not count toward album sales?

thatís just taken from what they said at the time, in actuality it appears that those two deluxe tracks on your example would count toward album sales, there have been a few recent examples of deluxe editions having a clear boost for albums such as The Kid Laroi and Pop Smoke which are getting most of their sales from streaming units. they mustíve quietly changed that rule. Iíll go and reword it in the OP now its on my mind.

Thanks for clarifying - I was lost on that one. Says a lot that you need basically need a degree in it to understand the chart rules these days.
