Tips for Spotify
Besides that, there are some cool Spotify tricks you need to know to master the app 100%.
Follow artists and albums
Almost the first thing you need to do after installing Spotify app is search for artists. It’s about building your own library. Find all the music you love and add it to your library. The more music you listen to, the better Spotify can recommend new music you’ll like.
Create your own reading lists
Find a song you want to add to a playlist, tap the Menu button and select Add to Reading List. If you haven’t already, create a playlist. The next time you go to the Add to Playlist screen, all of your playlists will be there.
Creating a playlist from iPhone does not provide the best experience. if you plan create a long playlist, I suggest you use Mac app or web player. Adding songs to a playlist requires too many taps in the iPhone app because you have to add them individually.
Spotify Radio allows listen to music similar to an album or playlist. Just go to an artist or list page and start the radio. You can listen to the artist’s songs and related music for hours, without ever having to touch the app.
Control Spotify from other devices
It’s one of the best features of Spotify and it’s amazing how well it works. When Spotify plays on one device and opens on another, the app Spotify will launch a popup indicating that music is playing on another device. You can choose to continue listening on the other device and use the current device as a remote control. Or you can easily switch playback to the current device.
When you browse and come across a song in list form, you can swipe right to quickly add it to your library and swipe left to add it to the play queue.
Manage Play Queue
When you start playing a song from a playlist, Spotify automatically creates a play queue for you. Go to the Now Playing screen and tap the Queue button in the bottom right. You will see upcoming songs in the Next section. This is Spotify’s own smart queue for you.
You can move songs up or down. You can delete songs or tap Add to Queue to create your own queue.
Download music for offline listening
When browsing a playlist or album, you will see the download option at the top. Tap it to save the songs to your device and be able to listen to them even if you don’t have an internet connection. It only works for Spotify Premium account users.
Change download quality
Go to your library and tap the Settings icon (gear icon), select now sound quality. From here you can change the allies with Wi-Fi and with mobile data between the options auto, low, normal, high and extra high.
Enable data backup
There may be a time when you don’t want to use too much data when listening to music. Go back to the Settings in Spotify and tap Data Saverit will change the quality of the doll to low.
Clear cache to free up space
Spotify is one of the few iPhone apps that has the function of clearing cache. Which is not the same as deleting downloaded music. These are just temporary files created by Spotify that take up space. Come into Spotify Settings > Storage and press the button empty the cache.
