Spotify has announced plans to launch Spotify HiFi, which will eventually enable audio to be streamed losslessly.
Spotify claims its latest HiFi mode will allow existing devices and Spotify Connect-enabled speakers to provide “CD-quality” audio. For the HiFi mode, the company did not go into further information about bit rate and codec. Currently, Spotify uses Ogg Vorbis on desktop and mobile computers and AAC for online players.
It will be available in “Select Markets” to start with, and as confirmed by Spotify confirmed to 9to5Google, the Premium Users will have to pay an extra amount excluding the usual subscription cost to get the HiFi Lossless audio.
The company released the following statement,
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 in the way artists intended.
It will offer “CD-quality, lossless audio” to your smartphone as well as compatible Spotify Attach speakers when this feature arrives. The business is obviously partnering with several big speaker suppliers to ensure that more individuals can hear Spotify HiFi’s enhanced audio quality.
