Six years ago, Spotify announced what would become their future premium subscription plan. Named “HiFi” (which refers to the concept of high fidelity/audio quality), this new tier would offer better audio quality, among other benefits. However, Spotify has not provided any specific details about it so far.
Now, thanks to a Reddit user’s leak, we have been able to get a deeper understanding of the features that this highly anticipated subscription plan would potentially have. It has been rebranded as “Supremium,” a name that might have more appeal.
After digging into the code of the Spotify app, u/Hypixely discovered some of the possible advantages that the Supremium plan would offer once it becomes available to users. The most notable of these is the ability to listen to 24-bit lossless music, a technology that, according to Spotify’s code, “has no lag or delay.”
Another feature included in the new subscription plan would be the “ability to create playlists with AI,” which is not surprising considering Spotify’s advancements in this area. In February of this year, the company announced that it was testing an AI called “DJ” that would recommend songs to users.
Additionally, the Supremium plan would provide users with up to 30 hours of audiobooks per month, the ability to filter their library by mood, activity, and genre, advanced mixing tools, and the “Soundcheck” feature, which informs the user about their listening habits and helps them discover their favorite “sound mix.”
And how much would all of this cost? According to u/Hypixely, Spotify’s Supremium plan would be priced at $19.99 per month, a price that would be double its current individual plan, which costs €10.99 per month in Spain. However, this price may not be final and could be a placeholder.
