It’s been a year since the Spotify announced that it would launch a HiFi plan between your signatures. The songs in Hi-Fi, acronym for High Fidelity (high Fidelity), bring the best possible sound quality. Competition, as Deezer, Amazon Music and Apple Music, already offers HiFi streaming, the last two at no cost. and investors of Spotify want functionality for yesterday!

Spotify says: HiFi is coming!

Yesterday, at a meeting with analysts and investors from the Spotify, Daniel Ek, CEO of the company, responded to the question about when the HiFi service at streaming platform. The Swede’s reply was this:

Several features that we announced and especially those that are related to music end up in [negociações] of licensing. So I can’t really announce anything specific about it other than to say that we’re in constant talks with our partners to bring this to market.

Last month, the Spotify had already published on its official forum that there was no forecast of when the functionality would be released. For those who, like me, are not audiophiles and/or do not have state-of-the-art equipment to be able to listen to music and movie audio in the best quality, the HiFi audio not much needed. After all, what good is putting a Ferrari tire on a Marea? But the problem of Spotify are two: who has the equipment and who also cares about the quality of the audio. And here comes the competition (and we have to give Neil Young a reason).

Neil Young left Spotify cursing the audio quality

Recently, Neil Young, one of the main musicians in history (without so much recognition in Brazil) left the Spotify after the company failed to pull the podcast from Joe Rogan of the platform. Young stated shortly after that the audio quality in the streaming was “shit* and castrated, remembering that Amazon Music, Apple Music, Dezzer and Tidal already offer high-resolution audio. Amazon and Apple do not charge any extra fee for the service Hi-Fi.
