The Spotify app on your iPhone offers several different settings that you can modify the way that your music plays. One of these settings, called crossfade, concerns the manner in which your songs transition from one to the next.
If you have ever heard a playlist where a new song starts playing as the old one is ending, then you have heard crossfade before.
This can be a really useful option for some users, so you might be wondering how to adjust the crossfade setting for songs that you play in the Spotify app on your iPhone.
How to Change the Crossfade Setting in Spotify
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 12.1.2. I am using the most current version of the Spotify app that was available at the time this article was written.
Note that the crossfade setting applies across the entire Spotify app on your device, so it will affect the playback of songs on all playlists.
Step 1: Open Spotify.
Step 2: Choose the Your Library tab at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Touch the gear icon at the top-right of the screen.
Step 4: Select the Playback option.
Step 5: Tap and hold on the slider button under Crossfade, then drag it to the right or left to adjust the duration of the crossfade.
