The famous streaming platform, Spotify, is preparing to launch a luxury subscription called “superpremium”, at least that’s what Reddit user “Hypixely” discovered by reviewing the application’s code.
What is Spotify “super premium”?
Apparently this service is in development since 2021, it will keep this name, although it was initially known as HiFi. New details reveal that they may offer better audio quality and the ability to use AI to create playlists, among other things.
Also, “super premium” will offer 24-bit lossless music, this means we can listen to CD-like sound quality, without audio compression that affects the fidelity of the music.
The app’s code also mentions advanced mixing tools that will allow users to customize their playlists based on songs’ beats per minute or their dance moves.
In addition, the “Sound Test” function is mentioned, which allows the platform to learn more about the listening habits of users, in order to create exclusive sound mixes for them.
Another feature is the ability to automatically create playlists powered by artificial intelligence and you can filter music based on your mood, activity or music genre. You also get the chance to enjoy up to 30 hours of listening to audiobooks every month.
How much does Spotify’s new plan cost?
At this time, the Spotify code puts its “superpremium” level at 20 dollars, which is equivalent to 347 pesos, it is a value that exceeds other current plans such as the “Individual” package that currently has a value which is 11 dollars per month, or 191 pesos. Internet users believe that it is not very intelligent that this is the “super premium” cost, because Apple Music and Amazon Music already offer lossless audio at no additional cost.
So far the company has not provided an official launch date for this service, and a spokesperson stated that they cannot comment on “Speculations on possible new features.”
Spotify has launched a tool called Showcase, it is designed for the most innovative creators and artists, because they will be allowed to pay to promote their work to the listeners of the home feed of the platform.
Now, musicians have the ability to select a song or even an entire album to display as a display mobile ad, which can be configured to target specific audiences from the first 30 available market. It is important to mention that it is clearly indicated that this is a payment recommendation.
According to the company, on average, users who watch a Showcase promotion are six times more likely to play the music being promoted. In addition, Spotify considers the location of the home screen strategic, since it is the most visited section of the platform.
