Some customers are seeing that the new feature would charge an additional $5 per month on top of the $10 per month they are already paying.
@Spotify Is there any official word on the Hi-Fi/lossless offerings we've been getting?
In an effort to attract audiophiles away from Tidal, Spotify is reportedly gearing up to launch a new lossless audio tier.
IPhone 8 to get OLED screen and USB Type-C?
Apple is expected to ditch the Lightning connector from the next-generation iPhone, believed to be the iPhone 8 or iPhone X . After giving up on the headphone port for Lightning, is Apple ready to replace the iPhone connector with USB-C?
Another screenshot, this time on Imgur, shows the same pricing tier and benefits, save for the free vinyl record, which is replaced by exclusive presale concert tickets. But when users clicked on the link, they were brought to a page that says there was an error or that the service isn't available in that area.
Lossless, high fidelity audio became a major factor in the music streaming market thanks to Tidal, which uses FLAC (for Android/Windows) and ALAC (for Apple devices) codecs for the £19.99 per month "Tidal HiFi" subscription tier. But with Android devices' USB-C connections and Apple's Lightning headphones capable of offering improved audio playback, it may only be a matter of weeks before we see a new version of the Spotify app. When/if this new lossless audio option will go live for subscribers is anyone's guess at this point. While users have been excited by the new offering, it doesn't appear to be functional yet.
Streaming subscriber growth has also consistently increased over the past few years; in 2016, Spotify and Apple Music together added more than 20 million subscribers, boosting their announced numbers to 40 million and 20 million, respectively, by the end of that year.
