Spotify HiFi, the high-quality audio streaming service, has been in the works for a few years now, but it has yet to be launched for subscribers in India. HiFi promises to deliver music in CD-quality audio, with a bitrate of up to 1,411 kbps, which is much higher than the 320 kbps bitrate of the standard streaming service.
Spotify has been testing HiFi in select markets, including the US, UK, and Canada, and the service is expected to launch in more countries soon. However, India is not one of them. Spotify has not yet made any official announcement regarding the launch of HiFi in India, and there is no indication that it will be available anytime soon.
Spotify HiFi will offer subscribers the ability to stream music in lossless audio quality, with no compression. This means that users will be able to experience music in its purest form, without any loss of quality. HiFi will also offer users the ability to customize their listening experience with various sound settings, such as bass boost and surround sound.
In addition to the improved audio quality, HiFi subscribers will also get access to exclusive content, such as artist interviews, playlists, and live events. The service will also offer discounts on select music merchandise.
Spotify HiFi is expected to cost more than the standard streaming service, with some reports suggesting that it could cost as much as $20 per month. This is significantly higher than the $10 per month subscription fee for the standard service.
At the moment, it is unclear when Spotify HiFi will be available in India. However, it is likely that the service will eventually launch in the country, as Spotify is looking to expand its presence in the Indian market. Until then, Indian subscribers will have to make do with the standard streaming service.
