Macrumors is suggesting the new plan will include CD quality along with something to do with improved audio book access, whereas Bloomberg are saying that the inclusion of CD quality is only “likely”.

However, 🤞🤞🤞

We had an official announcement from Spotify in 2021 and nothing happened.
Now we have rumors only.......

A quick google implies that it is still "coming soon"

Let's hope if it does come, that it doesn't undermine whatever Spotify is currently doing to make their lossy service sound so good.

Cut&paste from Reddit, seems like something is going on soon:
=========================================

Not sure if this has been covered at all, but I did a little digging within the Spotify app, and found info about the new, more expensive Supremium, which Spotify refers to as "Nemo" internally.

The new plan includes:

24-bit Lossless music (they don't refer to it as Hifi anymore)

They claim that "their technology has no lag and delays"

Ability to make playlists with AI

30h of audiobook listening every month

"Access to included audiobooks listening hours is only available to plan managers of Individual, Duo, and Family plans"

Ability to filter your library by mood, activity and genre

Advanced mixing tools

Customize the order of a playlist by BPM or danceability, or use "smart order" to create the best sequence using key and tempo

Enable smooth transitions which uses set cue points to seamlessly transition between tracks

Filter by moods and genres in a playlist

Soundcheck: tells you about your listening habits and discover what mix of sounds is "uniquely you"

EDIT: After more digging in the code, the price seems to be $19.99. This could just be a placeholder. https://i.imgur.com/QyluHBH.png

EDIT 2: Normal Premium accounts get 20h of audiobooks per month.
Mentions of Nemo Duo and Nemo Family.

Maybe an indirect sign that something is happening regarding lossless is that Spotify raised the minimum system requirements for MacOS desktop app from 10.13 to 10.15.
