Apple Music for Android should also get a modality option to listen to songs in hi-fi, and the launch of the feature for iOS is under consideration. The possibility was reported by 9to5Google, who discovered the novelty in the beta of the app.
By decompiling the latest test version of Apple’s music streaming to Google’s system, the site found evidence of the possible arrival of hi-fi audio in the application’s codes. According to the publication, there are two alternatives to lossless reproduction (without loss of quality).
If this is confirmed, users will be able to choose between “Lossless” and “High-Res Lossless”, in line with the already existing modalities of high quality and data saving. The vehicle also found warnings about the increased consumption of data and storage space when activating the hi-fi audio.
The lossless sound options found on Apple Music 3.6.0 Beta on Android are different from those available on Apple Music 14.6 Beta on iOS. In the Apple system, support for Dolby Audio and Dolby Atmos technologies appears, while in the first system there are only the modalities mentioned above.
Hi-Fi audio shouldn’t be the only novelty in the next release of the platform for Android, the streaming app will also get animated art, with new visuals for curated mixes and some albums, Android Police said.
These animated banners can be found on stations managed by Apple itself within the app. In the case of albums, singer St. Vincent’s Daddy’s Home album is one of the albums that will get the new art.
The lossless audio modality for both versions of Apple Music could be unveiled this Tuesday (18) along with other audio news, including the launch of AirPods 3.
