The “Supremium” version of Spotify with high-quality audio that the company plans to bring to market in the future will include lossless 24-bit music and advanced mixing tools, priced at around $20.
The music platform has been working on a version initially called HiFi with high-quality audio since 2021, which will include a lossless audio format in CD quality. During this time, the feature was delayed indefinitely, but Spotify co-president Gustav Söderström assured in March that “it will be available at some point.”
As revealed last June, this premium version will also be available in a new subscription tier called “Supremium” – ditching the term “HiFi” – and will be the most expensive the company will offer.
As Reddit user hiplixeli has now discovered, the Spotify app’s internal code shows some specific features that the company wants to introduce with the “Supremium” version, such as 24-bit lossless music and advanced mixing tools. In addition, the price should be 19.99 US dollars (at the exchange rate about 18.77 euros).
As stated, in addition to high quality, this version allows users to automatically create playlists powered by artificial intelligence (AI). This allows users to listen to audiobooks for 30 hours every month and also browse the music stored in their library and select tags according to their mood, activity or music genre.
On the other hand, when it comes to advanced mixing tools, Spotify’s code shows that it allows you to adjust the order of a playlist in terms of a song’s beats per minute or its danceability. Another option is to enable “Smart Order” mode, which creates the most appropriate song sequence based on the time of each song.
Likewise, other features also enable a “smooth transition” mode between songs, where reference points between the end of one song and the beginning of the next are chosen to establish transitions.
Additionally, the “Supremium” version will integrate sound testing to inform users about their listening habits and find out which sound mix works best for each user.
The code shows that Spotify plans to launch this version at a price of 19.99 euros, although the Reddit user pointed out that this number could be “simply a placeholder.”
As Spotify spokesperson CJ Stanley told The Verge, the company is not currently commenting on “speculation about possible new features.” “We have nothing new to share at this point,” he concluded.
Spotify currently has a subscription service, Spotify Premium, which can be purchased at prices ranging from 4.99 euros to 15.99 euros and with different functions depending on the number of accounts to be created or as a student. additionally.
