Spotify is reportedly on the verge of introducing a new, higher-priced subscription tier, according to an industry source familiar with the matter who tipped off Reuters. While rumors of a more expensive plan have circulated before, the latest information suggests this new offering is close to being finalized.

Features and pricing

The upcoming tier is expected to feature HiFi audio streaming, providing lossless audio quality, along with enhanced tools for curating playlists and managing music libraries. The cost of this premium tier is projected to be approximately $5 higher than Spotify‘s current plans, representing a roughly 40% price hike for most markets. However, pricing could vary by region.

Recent price increases

In a recent effort to boost its bottom line, Spotify has already increased its subscription rates in the US. The single plan saw a $1 rise, while the duo and family plans increased by $2 and $3, respectively. This move positions Spotify‘s subscription cost above that of Apple Music, which continues to charge $10.99 and $16.99 for its individual and family plans, respectively.

Market Implications

The announced price increase is currently exclusive to the US, but it is plausible that other markets may experience similar adjustments in the future. For instance, Spotify’s subscription rates in Pakistan have recently been adjusted, with the family plan now priced at Rs. 579 per month, up from Rs. 479. Despite this, the increase in Pakistan is modest compared to the US hike, indicating that further increases in Pakistan might be more gradual.

Competitive Dynamics

Interestingly, Spotify‘s recent price adjustment could potentially prompt its main competitor, Apple, to revise its pricing structure to match Spotify’s. This is a common tactic in competitive markets, where companies often align their pricing strategies to remain competitive.
