Spotify is one of the best online music streaming services that can be downloaded on your mobile device. With over 406 million monthly active users and 60,000 songs added per day it is one of the most widely used platforms for streaming music and podcasts. On this blog post I will show you how to improve the sound as well as the volume of your Spotify device.

Adjusting playback volume level

Open the Spotify app and navigate to the home screen using the bottom navigation. You will find a gear icon (⚙) at the top right corner of the app, from there you can select "Playback" and scroll down until you see the Volume level settings. You can then set it to Loud.

Home > Gear Symbol ⚙ (Normaly at the top right corner) > Playback > Volume level

Audio Quality

From the settings page scroll down and click "Audio Quality" from one of the options. Then you can select "Very high" for Wifi and cellular streaming(Premium users only). If you are a free user you can select the highest quality setting available.

Equalizer Settings

Spotify has an equalizer(also known as "EQ") settings. An equalizer is an audio filter that isolates certain frequencies and either boosts them, lowers them, or leaves them unchanged. You can play with the settings by changing the levels for a specific frequency or select one of Spotify's preset settings. I recommend "Loudness" for obvious reasons.

Clean your speakers

Cleaning your phone's speaker holes regularly prevents the dirt from penetrating into the surface. If you overlook the need to clean it from time to time, the stubborn, caked on dust may cause the phone's audio to stop working.
