Using free radio - able to select extreme stream

Regular

Hello all,

 

I had a basic question, I have the free radio subscription and I am able to select extreme sound quality and it stays that way.  I thought you had to have a premium membership to get that?

 

Are you able to use the 320 extreme now with the free version or is it just telling me that's what I am getting?

 

Is there a way to check the actual bit rate?

 

 

Thanks, I am using a Iphone 5 and sprint LTE network.

Hi, and welcome to the community!

 

On a free subscription, you can select the extreme quality but it will still play in normal quality whatever you select; so in reality it won't be playing at 320kbps sorry 🙂

ok, that's kinda what I figured,I am thinking about upgrading as I really dig the service.  I have unlimtied data on sprint and their new LTE network has sweet download speeds so I think I will be able to stream the extreme quality.

 

I usuallyy get at least 8 megabits down and sometimes way higher, is that enough to stream the extreme without and drop outs?

 

at home i have 50 down 10 up over wifi so I can't imacgine that would be a problem 🙂

Hi,

 

Yes that should be plenty, 4G LTE can do most things like broadband (that's faster than some users with slow broadband!) so you should be fine 🙂

You need to adjust the quality settings in the settings menu of your Spotify application. "Extreme" is 320kbps (the max) 😉
