How to Adjust Crossfade in the Spotify iPhone App

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.
