Spotify launches lossless audio subscription

News

Spotify is launching a new high-quality version of their streaming service called Spotify HiFi. The service will be available to Spotify Premium subscribers in select markets “later this year”. The news came as part of Spotify’s online event called ‘Stream On’, which also saw some other new features and announcements added to the popular streaming platform. 

Spotify claims high-res audio has been their number one feature request from users, but no information is available on how much the new hi-fidelity alternative will cost and when it will be available. The service is touted to work on all platforms and Spotify Connect-enabled speakers. 

Spotify hasn’t specified what the lossless format actually is, be it FLAC, WAV, AIFF etc, or the bit rate or sample rate, but we expect more details to follow soon. Find out more about what Spotify is announcing on their Stream On event here.
