Spotify Music Pro Subscription Is Coming (And This Is Better)

Spotify plans to raise prices and introduce a more expensive Music Pro subscription. But what do you actually get in return?

Spotify Music Pro Subscription Is Coming (And This Is Better)

According to rumors, Spotify has a new subscription ready. Spotify Music Pro gets a few extra features that are not found in the regular subscription. These rumors have been around for some time, but it was often thought that this subscription would be called ‘Spotify HiFi’. However, that name never seems to come up, and the website The Verge now says that Spotify will introduce Music Pro.

There have been rumors for some time that Spotify is planning to make changes. They want to increase prices again soon. But it seems that these plans only apply to a few countries for now. Usually it is the turn of other countries later.

More information has already emerged in the program code about the new Music Pro subscription form. The most notable addition is support for ‘lossless audio’, audio without quality loss due to compression. Spotify will therefore support FLAC audio files ‘up to 24-bit, 44.1 kHz’. By comparison, Apple Music has 16-bit/44.1 kHz audio (CD quality), up to a maximum of 24-bit/192 kHz.

This is not the only thing Spotify wants to add to the new Music Pro subscription. There are also indications in the program code that remix features are coming. This allows you, among other things, to adjust the speed of the songs or create a mash-up (a kind of mix of two songs). Another function that is also included in the program code is an optimization for listening with specific headphones or earbuds, such as the Apple AirPods.

It is not yet known when Spotify will launch the new Music Pro subscription. No prices have yet been announced for the lossless audio version of the music service. For comparison: Apple Music already has support for hi-fi audio and currently costs 10.99 euros per month.
