If you’re a music lover, you’ll definitely enjoy CD-quality streaming. That’s what Spotify HiFi is about to offer within its so-called Platinum tier. The big S was previously rumored to consider entering into CD-quality streaming. The rumors turned out to be true, for the intention is in the process of becoming a reality.
The streaming giant is rolling out its Platinum subscription plan in November. The special perks include HiFi streaming support, Studio Sound, Library Pro, Playlist Pro, and more. The list of promised features includes some truly mysterious tools, for the company is seriously tight-lipped about them. It looks like Spotify is on the prowl for believable Platinum tier rip-off justification.
It’s interesting to note that the Platinum tier is far from budget-friendly. Word has it that it will cost a whopping $20 a month. Spotify rivals, including Apple Music and Amazon Music, don't charge any extra for lossless audio, and that might be a problem for Spotify. Let’s wait and see if all the aforementioned goodies will motivate users to pay extra, particularly amid skyrocketing inflation and cost of living rise.
Good news: irrespective of the monthly fee, you’ll most likely get the chance to lay your hands on some sort of HiFi free trial to test-drive the service. Don’t forget to bookmark this page to later come back for more updates on the topic.
At the end of the day, the possible arrival of HiFi audio on Spotify would elevate the platform’s potential for offering higher-definition listening options to a brand new level. There’s no doubt about that. But will the streaming behemoth manage to convince its Premium users to upgrade to a Platinum subscription with extra perks for double the price? Only time can tell. As of today, the feature hasn’t yet been rolled out.
