In this article; https://www.whathifi.com/us/advice/mp3-aac-wav-flac-all-the-audio-file-formats-explained WHF make it very clear that Spotify use OGG Vorbis for the 320kbps service.If you ever wanted proof that WhatHiFi has no idea what they're talking about when it comes to audio and is generally either biased or very superficial and does NO tests - here's a concrete scientifical audio comparison:
As you can see, Spotify retains MUCH MUCH more sound from the original master vs Apple Music and clearly sounds better.
What's even more funny, is that WhatHiFi is telling us that Spotify uses 320kbps MP3, which is very false and proves they don't know what they talking about. It uses 320kbps OGG VORBIS, which is much superior to mp3. And this is EASILY ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION on Spotify.com.
