Spotify is a very popular music streaming app. As in many other programs, here we also find hidden features and tricks that not everyone knows about. In this article, we decided to collect the most interesting tips that you should know and use.
You can keep your playlist private. We don’t always want the playlist to be visible to others. Fortunately, we can hide it. To do this, you must use the privacy option. To do this, go to the Playlists section and select the one you want to hide. Then tap the ellipsis menu and select the Hidden option. At any time, you can do the opposite by making it public again.
It often happens that we delete certain playlists, but eventually regret it. Fortunately, once deleted on a mobile device, they are not lost forever and can be easily restored. To do this, you need to log into your account and select the Restore playlists section. Here we indicate the element to be restored and confirm with the Restore button.
In Spotify, you can activate the option of very high sound quality. This option is only available to Spotify Premium subscribers, it is not available in the free version, and it is quite logical. If you want to improve the audio quality even up to 320 kbps, go to the audio quality section and activate the very high audio quality. It should be said. That in this case, Internet traffic will be consumed more, so you will need a stable Internet connection and a high data transfer rate. The sound quality of Spotify is still inferior to the leader in this direction, the music streaming service Tidal. But the Swedish green giant also has something to brag about.
Spotify lets you add local music. This solution comes in handy when there are no songs or albums in the Swedish database that we have on disk, for example. To add them, enable Local Audio Files. The application supports mp3, mp4 and m4p music formats. It should be borne in mind that the computer and phone must be on the same Wi-Fi network.
Spotify has made it possible for you to listen to music in real time with your friends. To do this, select the transfer audio to other devices icon in the music player, and then go to Start a group session. Then invite up to five friends and follow the on-screen instructions.
Spotify allows you to conveniently stream your music to other devices. It can be speakers, TVs or other equipment. To do this, tap the Bluetooth and AirPlay (for iOS) icon in your music player, and then select your device from the list that appears. After a while, a sound will flow from it.
Just like in browsers, we can enable incognito mode, Spotify gives us a private session. It works by silencing our activities, hiding the songs we want to listen to from our friends. You don’t always want the music content you listen to to be available to someone else.
If we’re into creating playlists, being able to store them in folders will bring some order and allow us to find our resources much faster. To create a folder, simply click Menu (3 vertical dots) in the top left corner, then File and New Playlist Folder – the folder will then appear as the first item in the Playlists section. Now all you need to do is to take and drop the music file of your choice into the folder.
