Spotify Leak Reveals Imminent Launch of Lossless Audio Streaming

Long-awaited lossless audio streaming is finally coming to Spotify, as revealed by leaked screenshots of the platform’s user interface. These screenshots, which first appeared on Reddit, show new features related to lossless audio streaming, including a bitrate checker and support for 24-bit/44.1kHz FLAC files.

Spotify users have been eagerly anticipating the addition of lossless audio for years, and it seems that the wait is finally nearing its end. Currently, Spotify offers music streaming at a maximum bitrate of 320kbps. However, the leaked screenshots suggest that this will soon change, with support for bitrates up to 1,411kbps.

The screenshots also reveal that Spotify will be using the term “Enhanced Listening” to describe its lossless audio feature, rather than the previously announced “HiFi” branding. This change in terminology suggests that Spotify may be positioning lossless audio as a premium feature, rather than a standard part of its subscription service.

While the leaked screenshots indicate that Spotify’s lossless audio feature is nearing completion, there is no official word from the company on when it will be released. However, the appearance of these screenshots suggests that an announcement is likely not far off.
