I thought for a moment that Spotify uses Opus, but it turns out that they use Vorbis. Wonder why a switch isn't on their roadmap.



Do they publish their roadmap?

I'd imagine they consider what they have is good enough considering the backwards compatability issue it'd likely introduce.


They don't publish their roadmap, but there have been threads on their community forums suggesting this, and an official "Not Right Now" response:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/Live-Ideas/Music-Use-Opus-C...


I've yet to see them implement anything suggested on their forum (or github).

Just a guess but I bet it's because the cost would be higher than the extra revenue it would generate.
