Well, who woulda thunk it – Come Together is so far the most-streamed Beatles track on Spotify.

In case you’ve been too wrapped up in Christmas to notice, pretty much all of the band’s catalog showed up on most streaming sites Christmas Eve. While offering long-time Beatles devotees another way to access its music, the long-awaited arrival of the band’s work on streaming services is also expected to win the group a legion of new, younger fans.

In the first 48 hours of availability, during which time the band’s tracks saw some 50 million streams, Come Together emerged as the world’s favorite Beatles song – among Spotify users, at least. Originally released in 1969 toward the end of the Fab Four’s recording career, the song came top of not only Spotify’s global chart, but also its U.S. and U.K. charts. Other tracks in the streaming service’s top 10 Beatles lists (check them out below) span the entirety of the group’s career, from early pop ditties such as Love Me Do and I Want To Hold Your Hand, to later triumphs like Let It Be and Hey Jude.

When the group’s catalog arrived in the iTunes store in 2010, Come Together was the ninth most popular Beatles download in the first 24 hours of availability. Hey Jude topped that particular list (you can see it at the end of this piece).

Songs from the legendary Liverpool pop band have already been added to more than 673,000 playlists on Spotify alone, BillBoard reported, indicating a high level of interest in the new content.

Spotify could launch its HiFi lossless audio tier any day now
Spotify app and earbud.

In February, Spotify announced its ambitions to join the increasingly popular lossless audio space with a new subscription tier called Spotify HiFi. At the time, the streaming music company was silent regarding pricing or the potential timing for the new tier's debut, but a recently spotted video suggests it could happen imminently.

Late last week, Reddit user Nickx000x posted a video to the Spotify subreddit that appears to show an introductory animation for Spotify HiFi. The video -- spotted first by WhatHiFi? -- looks like it's designed to take Spotify mobile app users through the quick process of understanding what Spotify HiFi is, how it works, and how to know if they're actually getting the higher-quality lossless audio stream on their device.

Spotify CEO launches IPO in front of logo.

Spotify is finally bringing a long-awaited feature, offline playback, to its Wear OS app. The company announced it at Google I/O in May, and now a timeline has been laid out for when users can expect to see this feature on their wrists alongside a refreshed design.

"In the coming weeks, Spotify users will be able to play their favorite playlists, albums, and podcasts with their smartwatches that run Wear OS. By having Spotify on your wrist, you’re more free to run, dance, shop, cook, and socialize -- and control your music and podcasts at the same time," Spotify announced in a blog post. "Plus, we’re excited to unveil one of the most requested features by our users: the ability to download all of your favorite music and podcasts to your smartwatch."

Spotify Plus might give free users unlimited track skipping for $1 per month

Spotify appears to be testing out a new paid subscription option called Spotify Plus. At just $1 per month, it's far cheaper than its $10 per month Premium plan, but as you might expect, there's a reason. Unlike the Premium plan, Spotify Plus members won't be able to avoid ads, but they will get an unlimited number of track skips. Free Spotify members are currently limited to six skips per hour.

Originally reported by The Verge, Spotify Plus members will also get the ability to directly access tracks from a given album, another feature that free users don't get. Digital Trends reached out to Spotify to confirm these details, but the streaming company wouldn't entirely commit. "We're always working to enhance the Spotify experience and we routinely conduct tests to inform our decisions," a Spotify spokesperson told us via email. "We’re currently conducting a test of an ad-supported subscription plan with a limited number of our users. Some tests end up paving the way for new offerings or enhancements while others may only provide learnings. We don’t have any additional information to share at this time."
