Spotify's HiFi audio add-on available for $5 a month


Music lovers with discerning ears, rejoice. Spotify is reportedly exploring a new premium tier offering high-fidelity (HiFi) audio streaming, according to a Bloomberg report.

This new tier, rumored to cost an additional $5 per month, would cater to listeners who crave the richest possible audio experience. But that's not all, Bloomberg also suggests the tier might include features to help users manage their music libraries and generate custom playlists.

While Spotify hasn't officially confirmed these details, a source familiar with the company's plans revealed that existing subscribers could add the HiFi tier to their current plan. Paired with the recent price increase to $11.99 for Spotify Premium, a HiFi subscription could reach $16.99 per month.

This wouldn't be Spotify's first foray into HiFi audio. The company initially teased the feature in 2021, but it never materialized. Since then, rumors have swirled about Spotify's HiFi ambitions, including a "Supremium" tier and even a potential remix feature.

Leaks and code snippets discovered within the Spotify app further fuel speculation. These hints suggest the tier might offer 24-bit lossless audio, AI-powered playlist creation, and mood-based song filtering within playlists. Additionally, Reddit users have unearthed code hinting at "lossless" audio options and leaked UI elements mentioning lossless quality and specific bitrates.

While it's important to treat these details with a grain of salt until Spotify makes an official announcement, one thing is clear: Spotify is exploring ways to enhance the listening experience for its users.
