Spotify still set to roll out HiFi to “premium users” but “don’t have timing details to share yet”
Spotify subscribers can still get all of the music streaming content in hi-fi quality.
Spotify is keeping its promise of rolling out HiFi audio streaming, even though it still hasn’t confirmed a release date yet.
The streaming giant first announced Spotify HiFi in February last year, a subscription upgrade that will deliver songs in lossless, CD-quality audio. It was due to launch in “select markets” on an unspecified date in 2021.
In a community thread, Spotify shared a brief update last Friday (7 January) to inform users that HiFi is indeed still in the works – alluding that it may come as an extension to premium users rather than take up a tier of its own: “We know that HiFi quality audio is important to you. We feel the same, and we’re excited to deliver a Spotify HiFi experience to Premium users in the future. But we don’t have timing details to share yet.”
No other details were provided by the company regarding the delay, but it guaranteed that more information will be shared in the coming future. “We will of course update you here when we can,” continued the post.
High-quality streaming is one of the top requested features from subscribers, according to Spotify. Back in February, it also revealed that it’s teaming up with “some of the world’s biggest speaker manufacturers” to make Spotify HiFi available to as many users as possible.
