Sometimes you can use the service satisfactorily even if you don’t know many of the details. However, knowing some tricks can shorten paths for doing some things, so it’s good to keep an eye on everything the tool has to offer.

1. Use Spotify directly from your desktop. In addition to applications for mobile platforms, the streaming service also has desktop versions – and they are compatible with Linux, Mac and Windows.

2. To download the installer, simply go to the download page. It automatically redirects to a specific section of your operating system. Then just sign in and use the app directly from your desktop without opening a browser to listen to music.

3. After installing Spotify on your computer, you can quickly access playback control. On Windows (7, 8, or 10), simply hover over the open window icon on the operating system’s taskbar. On Linux or Mac, just open the system sound control menu, usually located next to the clock. There you can start or stop playback, as well as fast forward or rewind the tracks being played.

4. There are times when you just don’t want anyone to know what you’re listening to, or if you want to keep your privacy forever, for whatever reason, just turn on Spotify’s private session. To do this, click the button with your name in the upper right corner of the screen to open a new menu. There, just click “Private Session” and that’s it, from now on, no one else will know what you’re listening to.

5. Discover new music to listen to through official Spotify playlists. One of the coolest features of music streaming services is called playlists. That’s because these playlists offer the opportunity to discover new sounds, especially those curated by each instrument’s curator – and Spotify is one of the benchmarks in that sense. So, when accessing Spotify through the website or app, navigate through the tabs on the home screen. There, in each menu, there will be a number of very interesting tips that you should know about. In addition, there is a very specific selection depending on what you are looking for (for example, music for training, concentration, study, sleep, nature sounds, etc.).

6. If you have installed the Spotify app on your computer, use it as your default music player. This can be useful for several reasons: it eliminates the need for another program to listen to files you have downloaded to your computer that are not available on Spotify. To do this, simply open the “Local Files” option present in the menu on the left side of the screen and specify in which folder on the disk all your songs are located. It will take some time to find and organize everything, but once that’s done, just browse and select the songs you want to hear.

If you follow the tips above, you can get the most out of using the popular Swedish music streaming service.
