Spotify Confirms No Plans for HiFi Launch, Industry Experts Agree It’s Not a Deal Breaker for Listeners
Music lovers and industry insiders alike are voicing concerns over Spotify’s recent interface overhaul, which some say prioritizes the platform’s status as an audio platform over its core mission of music delivery. Many have expressed disappointment with the changes, which they say have left the app feeling cluttered and out-of-step with traditional music streaming services.
While Spotify has made a number of costly acquisitions in recent years to expand its offerings beyond music, critics argue that the platform’s new focus on podcasts and audiobooks has come at the expense of its music library. For those with a more traditional approach to music consumption, the updated app is proving to be a turn-off.
