Spotify is launching a new “Supremium” subscription

It’s planned to be introduced later this year.

Spotify are planning to announce a new premium tier of their subscription service, dubbed “Supremium”, according to Bloomberg.

The new tier is being created in order to appease investors who want the service to draw more money from its subscribers.

New features added to the tier will be high-fidelity audio – which is probably related to the new product they have been working on since 2021.

The rollout for the new feature was delayed when their competitors, Apple Music and Amazon Music, began offering it for free as part of their standard plans.

The company said at the time that HiFi audio was “consistently one of the most requested new features by our users.”

While the new feature will put the service on equal footing with Apple Music and Amazon Music, the fact that it is a premium feature will surely still irk some users.

With Spotify’s most-expensive tier expected to launch this year in non-US markets, current premium members are expected to enjoy new features like expanded access to audiobooks – through a specific number of free monthly hours or number of titles.

Spotify desktop redesign

In other news, the music-streaming service has announced that it’s revamping it’s desktop design.

According to the company, it is their “biggest revamp yet” and will feature redesigned Your Library and Now Playing views.

While the main content area will be the same, Spotify have said that there will be “new additions to help align our Desktop experience with the mobile app.”

The rollout for the new desktop experience started yesterday, June 20.
