Spotify had announced it would release its HiFi by the end of this year. They have one day left ...I’ve had enough of waiting for Spotify to join even the cd rate offerings of others.
I've always wondered how they would tackle this topic. They don't have a lot to gain by offering cd-quality, let alone hi-res. They already have the largest user base, though many are using the free tier. What is Spotify's commercial strategy? What is the business model like? There is more in play than we know.
Most Spotify subscribers don't care about cd or hi-res quality. They appreciate the UI and AI. Audiophiles don't make for a large user base.
