[Desktop][Other] Offer Hifi as standard like Amazon and Apple

Both Apple and Amazon both announced today that they are offering Hifi as standard. So the feature we need is for Spotify to offer this now basic feature... 

 

Amazon:

 

Amazon's high-fidelity streaming service, Amazon Music HD, is now available to Amazon Music Unlimited subscribers at no extra cost, the company tells Billboard. Amazon Music HD previously cost $14.99 a month ($12.99 for Prime members) while Amazon Music Unlimited, its most popular service option, is $9.99 a month ($7.99 for Prime members).

 

Apple:

 

Apple Music subscribers will also be able to listen to more than 75 million songs in Lossless Audio at no additional cost. Apple Music's standard Lossless tier will start at "CD quality," which is 16 bit at 44.1 kHz, and goes up to 24 bit at 48 kHz, according to Apple. Apple Music will also offer Hi-Res Lossless up to 24 bit at 192 kHz.

Haha...Spotify will probably offer better quality next year at the earliest. As well as support for Apple HomePods and other things we've been waiting for.

I agree. I'm ready to switch if they offer an inferior product for more money. They're already raising prices, so it doesn't make sense to keep premium without Dolby Atmos or HiFi.
