Spotify announces HiFi music streaming

attachment.jpg
Artists and fans have told us that sound quality is important to them. We agree, and that’s why today at Stream On we announced Spotify HiFi.

Beginning later this year, Premium subscribers in select markets will be able to upgrade their sound quality to Spotify HiFi and listen to their favorite songs the way artists intended.

Read on for five things you need to know about our new high-quality music experience:
  • High-quality music streaming is consistently one of the most requested new features by our users.
  • Spotify HiFi will deliver music in CD-quality, lossless audio format to your device and Spotify Connect-enabled speakers, which means fans will be able to experience more depth and clarity while enjoying their favorite tracks.
  • Ubiquity is at the core of everything we do at Spotify, and we’re working with some of the world’s biggest speaker manufacturers to make Spotify HiFi accessible to as many fans as possible through Spotify Connect.
  • HiFi will be coupled with Spotify’s seamless user experience, building on our commitment to make sure users can listen to the music they love in the way they want to enjoy it.
  • Spotify HiFi will begin rolling out in select markets later this year, and we will have more details to share soon.

What's up with all the purple and green-haired folks?

I can only assume they are catering to a certain crowd. Seems like they'd project a different image if they really wanted to attract the "hi-fi" crowd. Kid's don't care if it's compressed.

I think it would be great if they were able to change the younger generations thought process on this. Since "they" do so much other stuff that I don't like; I can get behind this. ;)

Well I can't keep up with everything on qobuz and Tidal (will probably drop Tidal soon) as it is. I highly doubt Spotify is going to offer anything new that will make me want to spend more money on another subscription, so it's a moot point for me anyway.
