How to Enable Audio Normalization in the Spotify iPhone App

If you’re reading this article then it’s likely that you have experienced something that is pretty common among Spotify users.

You are playing a song in the app, then the next song comes on and it’s either much quieter or much louder than the previous one.

This issue arises because individual songs are produced differently, and the volume level for one song may not be similar to the volume level of the next song.

Spotify attempts to help with this issue via the “Enable Audio Normalization” setting in the app. Our tutorial below will show you where to find and enable this setting on your iPhone.
