Spotify

I guess it was inevitable, but oh well, at least a 1€/month increase is minimal, could've been worse.

Now since prices are being upped everywhere, how about bringing all those features only available to people living in English-speaking countries to everyone else hmm @Spotify.

Yeah where is the DJ feature? I've given up on HiFi at this point.
 
Can't wait for all my favourite artists to see some more money from this price increase!! xx

The artists in question

Yeah, I just got an email about the price change. The justification is so annoying. If they'd said it was because they're committed to giving artists a better share of the income I'd be all for it - hey, increase it by 50%, fine! But ff it's for giving me more 'updates and innovations' that uniformly make the platform less enjoyable to use on weekly basis (the fact that my list of playlists seems to change order and filter EVERY SINGLE TIME I navigate to it on my desktop drives me absolutely bananas), you're taking the piss.
 
I know that 0 of the money is going to go to the artists (though if they were actually smart they'd try and sell it as "it's to support the music you love!"), but like... 1 dollar extra per month to have access to basically... all music that has ever been released seems pretty fair to me dd? They probably should have raised it ages ago.

I mainly use Apple Music but use Spotify to discover music which is a bit of a waste of money but it helps me find so much I’d never find otherwise.

But if you’re using Spotify with AirPods the quality to convert from 320kbps .ogg to 256kbps .m4a (which is how the AirPods work) makes it sound so bad. Aside from not offering lossless this conversion is just poor quality in comparison to Apple Music which doesn’t need to do a conversion for AirPods.

If Spotify offer lossless eventually at least the conversion from lossless to 256kbps .m4a to play on AirPods might actually work out well and sound better even though AirPods can’t play lossless audio.

Honestly, I don't think it has anything to do with the AirPods conversion because you can still hear the lackluster sound quality in a car or speakers at home. I think they did something a couple of months ago that truly worsened the quality so I wish they just stop processing the sound and let us have the true masters like Apple Music.

Yeah it's definitely not how the sound is delivered to AirPods, as I don't even use them for the most part. I listen either through my soundbar in the living room, or in my car, and Spotify's quality took a nosedive at some point. Some tracks are just a muffled mess. The difference when switching to AM was instantly audible.
