Rumors and Speculations

Speculations surrounding Spotify’s incorporation of lossless format support are not new, emerging even before Apple Music introduced it in 2021. Despite previous announcements about Spotify HiFi, the feature never materialized. Now, indications suggest that lossless support might finally be on the horizon.

Insights into Music Pro Plan

A peek into the Spotify app’s code provides insights into what users can expect from the forthcoming Music Pro plan. The standout enhancement will be the support for lossless format, granting access to FLAC audio files (up to 24 bit / 44.1 kHz). This contrasts with Apple Music’s range of 16-bit/44.1 kHz to 24-bit/192 kHz.

To justify the premium tier, Spotify intends to incorporate exclusive features, notes NIX Solutions. Music Pro subscribers may access a new remix feature, enabling track manipulation like speeding up and mixing. Furthermore, Spotify developers aim to optimize sound for specific headphone models such as Apple AirPods. Additionally, AI-based functions like advanced playlist creation filters might be introduced. However, the pricing for the Music Pro plan remains undisclosed.
