I check audio quality with:
➜ ~ rm spotify.log; spotify --log-file=spotify.log
No matter what I do it always streams at "bitrate: 160000 bits/s".
Things I've done:
- Double checked my account is premium (unless it's bugged or something, not recent premium, have had it for awhile).
- Tried the official snap version and also arch AUR build.
- Toggling stream quality in settings does nothing. Auto, high, very high, low all does the same thing and streams at the same bitrate. (I restarted app after everything change).
Can argue maybe I can't hear the difference between high and very high. But for sure I can tell the difference if it actually set the quality to low! So the logs are reporting correctly, and the setting doesn't do anything.
