How to Enable Spotify Data Saver on an iPhone

Streaming music on your iPhone doesn’t use as much data as streaming video, but it can turn into a lot of data use if you find that you are listening to music on a cellular network with Spotify.

One way to avoid excessive data usage is by taking advantage of Offline mode, but that can be tedious and requires a bit of planning, as well as some storage space. One other option is to use Spotify’s Data Saver mode. This switches your music quality level to low, thereby reducing the amount of cellular data that is used when you stream Spotify over a cellular network. Our guide below will show you where to find and enable this setting so that you can start using less data.
