Qobuz v4.0 music app and Sublime+ now available
Qobuz made its name by being the first to offer the lossless FLAC audio format for streaming.
This new version of its app is a complete recasting of the design and functions of the online music service.
The musical experience makes use of the latest developments in online music for demanding music lovers.

The company is looking to reaffirm its commitment to instant download services.
It has redesigned the interface of their web-based music platform. It now integrates richer editorial content and makes more available to mobile users.
The Qobuz app is highly user-focused offering intuitive playlist management and recommendations.
Its internet download site will be updated too. The new version will be available at the end of Summer 2017.

With this update, Qobuz has become even more versatile and mobile. The company goes as far as to claim that “a real musical revolution has been set in motion”.
For the first time, it is possible to listen to 24-bit music, streamed and offline, directly from your smartphone or tablet.
The app is currently available in the 9 countries where it is already present: France, the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg.
Furthermore, Qobuz is looking to offer its services further afield. In fact, it has announced that it will launch its services in Spain, Italy, Poland, the USA and Canada this year.
The latest addition to the Sublime range is another world first from Qobuz.
For the first time ever, Sublime+ offers its subscribers the ability to stream music in real “Hi-Res sound”.
This development will be fully available on all applications including Mac, for PC, for iOS and for Android. It will also appear on all of the company’s compatible partner brands.
This means you will have access to the best possible sound quality whether at home or on the go.
Qobuz claims that the Sublime range is the highest-quality streaming option on the global market.
Qobuz is offering a 1-month free trial of its service.
