Spotify said earlier this year that they would be launching Spotify HiFi in the near future. This would be a new streaming tier offered by the company that would allow users who are concerned about audio quality. And want just the finest that streaming services have to offer to access higher quality broadcasts at a lower cost.
Unfortunately, it appears like there is a risk that it will not included in the final cut this year. However, given that we’re only a few days away from entering the year 2022. It appears that this is no longer a viable option for the corporation to deploy by the end of this year.
Why the corporation is taking such a lengthy time to deploy the service remains a mystery at this time. It is possible, though, that this is due to competition, specifically from Apple. Which announced earlier this year that their own Apple Music service would be receiving a lossless tier at no additional cost to customers. According to 9to5Mac, this provides Apple Music a competitive advantage over Spotify. And as a result, Spotify may have compelled to reassess their business approach.
In the end, why would users pay more for a more expensive subscription tier when the competition, such as Apple Music, is practically giving it away for free? In any case, if you’re a Spotify user who had been looking forward to this new service. You may have to wait until 2022 before you can sign up for it, according to the company.
