High quality sound

The service's catalog may include some variants of the same track of different sound qualities. In normal mode, the sound quality is selected automatically depending on the bandwidth of your internet connection (usually this means MP3 format with a 192 Kbit/s bitrate). To listen to music with a 320 Kbit/s bitrate, click (High Quality) in the player. In high quality mode, the highest quality version of the track will always play.

Note. Sound quality does not change immediately, but rather with the next track. If you want to listen to the current track in high quality, play it again.

High quality sound is only available with a paid subscription. You will use more data if you listen to music at a high bitrate.
