Audio quality difference between free and premium

Gig Goer

Hi, i have an premiun account.

For fun sake i made an free account now for test the difference,  i just wonder, when there's an alternative for high quality listening to both accounts, should it be same audio quality? 


suggestions? am i not supposed to have this option in my free account?

not if you do High Quality Streaming or atleast i believe so sir.

Premium streams up to 320kbps, free is limited to 160kbps.

On Premium you may need to change your quality settings from the settings menu (Edit/Spotify > Preferences) on desktop or via the Settings menu in the mobile applications. If you are using the web player it streams at 160kbps regardless of your subscription level.
