Spotify With Many New Features: Lossless HiFi By The End Of The Year

The pandemic has certainly been good for Spotify's productivity. In an almost 2 hour-long video event named "Stream-On", the company announced a great number of new features coming to the streaming service. The company is still on an expansion course and soon headed into new markets, with a particularly attractive offer for audiophiles: A HiFi upgrade with lossless music playback. The streaming service is also working on additional features for podcasts.

Spotify HiFi Hopes To Compete With Amazon, Deezer, & Tidal
After the end of this year, there will be a new subscription option for Spotify's premium users – Spotify HiFi. This option will enable users to enjoy lossless music in CD quality, as the company claims. More information concerning the service should arrive "shortly". There's not yet any indication of a release date or price range for the new Spotify feature, however, Spotify competitor and streaming service provider Deezer offers lossless playback for US$14.99 – Amazon also provides the service for the same price, with a US2$ reduction for Amazon Prime customers (try Amazon Prime Music for free: ). Apple Music doesn't yet provide lossless playback.
