Spotify HiFi Lossless level arrives later in 2021


Hifi stereo! Spotify is entering the high-quality audio business with Spotify HiFi. At its online-only Stream On event on Monday, Spotify announced Spotify HiFi, a new lossless tier that will be priced higher than the existing Spotify Premium subscription (119 rupees per month / $ 9.99 per month) . Spotify did not provide a price for Spotify HiFi, or when it would be rolled out – except to say that it will only be available in certain markets – I wouldn’t expect India to be on the list. Gadgets 360 has contacted Spotify and will update as soon as we have a response.

Spotify is far from the first major music streaming service to go the hi-fi route. Tidal (available in 56 countries excluding India) rolled out premium recordings in January 2017. Tidal HiFi costs $ 19.99 per month in the US, double the standard Tidal Premium plan at 9 , $ 99 per month. Amazon Music followed in September 2019 with Amazon Music HD (again, not in India) costing $ 14.99 per month / $ 12.99 if you have Amazon Prime, not as much of a steeper climb of $ 9.99 per month / $ 7.99 per month if you’ve Amazon Prime for the standard plan.
