With Spotify and other music streaming services like Rdio and iHeartRadio, music lovers often have to decide between spending money on new music or staying in the comfort of their own library.
Whether you’re using a desktop or mobile app, there’s a fair amount of information you can find online to help you decide.
So let’s look at what’s in the Spotify app on your phone, and how to make the most of your music.1.
Choose the right appIf you’re a Spotify user, you might have an app that’s built around Spotify, but you’re still probably more likely to use the free version.
Spotify’s free version has a large library of more than 100 million songs, while its paid version has more than 3.5 billion songs.
Spotify is also very accessible for non-technical users, with a variety of filters and search capabilities that help you find the right music for you.
If you’re looking to listen to your favorite tunes while you’re away, you’ll probably want to look at the Spotify Music app.2.
Use Spotify’s personalized recommendationsThe Spotify Music apps use a custom algorithm to suggest the music you like based on what you listen to on Spotify.
The recommendations are based on your tastes, listening habits, music tastes, and location.
It’s also important to note that these recommendations don’t automatically include songs from popular artists, or even genres.
You’ll need to manually add the songs you want to listen for, and then adjust the frequency, volume, and other settings as needed.
If your tastes are different, Spotify’s recommendations might not match your tastes.

Playlists and recommendations in the backgroundThe Spotify app lets you play your favorite music while you browse the web or browse through the music.
You can choose to have your favorite songs and artists play as background music, or to have the music play in the foreground.
You also have the option to “auto-play” music in the app, so you can quickly pause and resume listening to your favourite songs.
Spotify also lets you pause music from a particular song and play it while you continue browsing.
When you pause or resume playback, Spotify will automatically adjust the volume to match your preferences.4.
Choose a playlistYou can search through the Spotify music app’s playlist and then select a specific song.
You will also see the songs and albums that are currently playing.5.
Make your own playlistThe Spotify music player lets you create a playlist of your own music.
This will automatically sync to your Spotify account when you start streaming.
When the playlist is created, you can then use the “Play” or “Play Next” buttons to play the song you want or add a song you’ve never heard before.6.
Search through your musicYou can also search Spotify’s own music database by song name, artist name, or genre.
You may also search for songs and tracks in your own Spotify library, which is also known as “your library.”7.
Add your own artistThe artist or song name can be customized in the “Artist” or the “Subgenre” fields.
You might want to use a similar name to the artist on the official Spotify app.8.
Browse for artistsYou can browse for artists by artist name.
These fields allow you to search for artists of the same genre or even songs with similar genres.
Artists can also include a category to display more of their genre and a title to describe the artist.
Artists will also appear in a playlist section for your Spotify favorites.9.
Choose songs to playWhile searching for music, you may also see a “play” or play next button that lets you select songs to start listening to or play on your device.
You choose songs in this fashion to allow you a way to quickly resume listening, or simply play a song without stopping.10.
Create your own playlistsThe Spotify playlists are a great way to listen and share music.
The songs you create in this way are automatically synced to your device, so they will sync to the Spotify account.
This allows you to listen back to songs you’ve created in your Spotify library or your favorite artists on the Spotify website.
You can create up to 30 playlist types, each with a specific name, and you can add songs to each one.
Each playlist has a name and an artist, which you can also change.
If a song is already in a playlist, the name and artist will be added.
You’re able to set the playlist to auto-play and skip songs that are already in the playlist.
You have the ability to create playlists with other Spotify users or create your own personalized playlist.
You should use this option to keep your playlist fresh and to share your favorite Spotify artists and songs with other users.1 of 9 Next >>
