Will Androids be getting Extreme Quality too?

Regular

Now that the iPhones/Ipads have gotten Extreme quality of 320kbs on their mobiles, is this something coming to the Android mobiles as well?

 

I have the 320 on my desktop, but having the increaseed bit rate on my phone would help me justify the 10 bux a month.

There is light in the form of a beta release - this allows high quality streaming and downloads and fixes a lot of other issues too: https://www.spotify.com/se/download/previews/

I think it should! Why are Android users being discriminated like this?

It sure needs an update! Soon spotify will probs start loosing tons of customers. It's so many streaming programs that's popping up now so. They dont even fixed the login bug yet that's bugging out ppls. Did feel like an idiot when i finally realized i had an space after my login name that affected it 😞 Update update nownow! Give us the ios thing or anything better than the current app!!

Hi, i ordered the Android Cowon Z2 from Korea, especially for the Spotify app, i received it three days ago, all i can say is i'm pretty deceived with the poor sound of the app. I didn't know iphone users had extreme quality. I'll be waiting for an update, just like you.

Simple answer is.

 

NO

 

because they have showed no intrest in updating the Android app.  I am on a rant.  I am tired of them

I am thinking of buying the Cowon Z2 to have Spotify and my music library in the same player but the poor quality of the android app is making me think twice. Why is spotify ignoring us that way? we should all stop ours subscription, that would be a clear message for them to do something about it!!

If i can give you an advice : think twice. I bought the cowon z2 for spotify, and i didn't have any bug at all, but the real problem is the volume limitation of the app (it's also the case for deezer, qobuz etc...). The only fix is to launch the mic recorder of the cowon, it unlocks the volume, but after doing that you can't click on 'home' or 'back' without hearing the volume turn down. 

My Z2 is for sale on ebay since yesterday because of this problem, i went back to my sansa clip+ with no regrets.

Do you know if rooting the device will be a solution for the volume? Thanks

Absolutely not, my device was rooted, and the firmware version doesn't change anything (i flashed the new 1.28 from the korean cowon site this morning). In fact people had the same issue with the D3. My opinion is the volume restriction comes from the apps, not the devices. Check out this conversation : http://iaudiophile.net/forums/showthread.php?t=40032

By the way, if you ever have an idea to fix this, it would be great, my Z2 is not sold yet.

Perhaps this is a silly question but; do you think an external amplifier will help? If I find out something I'll let you know...
