Spotify is seemingly prepping a high quality audio version of its service, because that worked out brilliantly for Tidal, didn't it?
The pricing test offered users an upgrade to high-quality audio for between $5 and $10 more per month than the usual $10-a-month Spotify Premium.
In the ever-evolving struggle to be the number one music streaming service, Spotify and Apple are the heavyweights, with other like SoundCloud and TIDAL far behind.
Spotify has not confirmed when or if its Hi-Fi tier will eventually be rolled out as an official option to all users. That's on top of Spotify Premium's $9.99 per month price; users could be spending as much as $20 per month for access to higher fidelity audio. Perhaps, reaching the 50 million milestone could help Spotify to make that case for a public offering even in light of its losses.

But Kansas City has just $5 million in cap space, per Overthecap.com , and can't likely afford to bring back both players in 2017. Berry, for his part, would love to be back, too, though he admits he does not know what the future holds.
Furthermore, Spotify has opted to not engage in a war over exclusive album premieres, which has been Apple Music's strategy to lure new users. Signing up might also get audiophiles a free vinyl and discounts on future vinyl purchases.
"We are always testing new products and offers but have no news to share at this time".
For the average music listener, as long as you have your mp3s or your music streaming service and working earphones or headphones, then you're good to go.
There are now words if Spotify will exceed Tidal's 1411Kbps just yet or when Spotify Hi-Fi will arrive in the market. A screenshot posted on Reddit doesn't include any extra features besides the lossless audio, with a price listed at an additional $10 a month. Has anyone seen this offer in their Spotify app?
