Spotify is a music service that is simple and comfortable to use.

You can start a radio station and it will run for as long as you want. There are also lots of playlists in it that will have you dancing throughout the day.

However, even if Spotify can be simple to pick up, immediately it is yours, knowing how to go about making the most of your experience will require some guidance.

Below is how you can do more with Spotify on your Android device:

1. Audio quality

Spotify provides lots of audio qualities to users that desire clarity or those that want to save data. Sadly, setting the audio quality on streaming and on mobile data cannot be separated. The same audio quality is what you get. So before you make up your mind to increase your streaming audio quality to “Extreme”, think about how much you plan to use Spotify with a data connection, like in a vehicle or as you exercise.

For the setting of quality, head to “My Library” and click the gear icon in the top right corner of your display, you will see the audio settings there.

It is possible to set the audio quality for downloaded songs differently from streaming audio quality. If your mobile device is not complaining about space, setting downloaded audio quality to “Extreme” is a wise decision.

2. Load up for offline

Spotify will not let you cache music to play when you are not online, therefore, all you need to listen to offline will have to be downloaded. This is why it is key to have your preferred albums and playlists downloaded in case there is no connection.

Albums and playlists can be downloaded, while radio stations and tracks cannot. If you fancy a specific radio station, it is possible to include tracks from the station to a playlist so you can play when you are not online, but it has to be done one by one.

It does not matter what you download, simply make sure something is saved for your offline use.

3. Choose what you save to your library wisely

Spotify is home to several jams to enjoy, and via radio stations, playlists and Discover, you can rock various new songs. Just be certain that you are feeling the song before you have it saved to your library. Spotify will only let you add ten thousand tracks to your library, and immediately you approach that limit, you will need to clean albums and songs that you no longer enjoy to make way for the fresh jams you wish to add.

The wisest thing to do here is to add individual tunes to your library instead of adding full albums if you do not fancy all the songs in it.

4. Turn up the radio

When it comes to refining your selections on Spotify, the most appropriate way to go about it is by listening to radio stations regularly and rating your experience. It does not matter if you like listening to your playlists always, try to enjoy the radio stations once in a while and ensure you rate song suggestions.

Spotify will surely serve you dope mixes and will also expose you to playlists that will suit your music taste. By so doing, anytime you enjoy a radio station, you never have to skip.

5. Play with playlists

Spotify is loved for its radio stations, but that does not mean when you build your personal playlists, you are out of line. By creating your personal playlists, Spotify can then dazzle you with more personalized radio stations via Playlist Radio. Adding songs from several radio stations to playlists will also grant you the opportunity to rock them once more and have them downloaded for your use when you are not online.
