A huge number of Spotify users are using the Spotify Android app to stream music on their Android smartphone. Some users may not know exactly what features, using skills, advantages and disadvantages of the Spotify Android app, and this has caused some problems when they are using it. In this post, we will introduce to you some useful skills and features of Spotify Android app, and show you how TuneMobie Spotify Music Converter can help to improve your Spotify music experiences.

Part 1: Spotify Android App Features & Skills

As an app that has been in development for several years, the Spotify Android app is now comparable to the desktop. User can find that all the basic functions of the Spotify desktop are actually retained in the Spotify Android app. Users can discover new music, albums, and podcasts, search for your favorite song or artist, make and share their own playlists and find music for any mood and activity on their smartphones with Spotify Android app. Although these are just the basic functions of Spotify, compared to enjoying these services on the Spotify desktop, it is significantly more convenient on Android smartphones or tablets.

Spotify Android App

Spotify premium features on Spotify Android app are also as same as the Spotify desktop. Spotify premium users who use Spotify Android app can listen to an album, playlist, or podcast without ad breaks, play music by any artist, at any time on mobile or tablet and download and play music for offline listening. These "Advanced" feature are also available on Android smartphones and tablet, however, although the Spotify Android app has more advantages in terms of convenience, it is still better on the desktop side in terms of storage.

There are some useful skills you can try to set on your Spotify Android app to better enjoy music with it. For example, the Auto Play mode. It's a nifty feature for anyone who wants continuous tunes without looping the same tracks over and over. With the Spotify Android app, you can tap Your Library > Settings, then toggle the AutoPlay mode on.

For another example, Spotify's Automatic and Normal settings for streaming and downloads, generally, should sound decent enough for most casual listeners. If you look for the best enjoyment, there's a way to wring every last bit out of Spotify's music streams and downloaded tracks. In this case, you can tap to Spotify's streaming quality settings (Your Library > Settings, then pick some new options. For streaming, you can choose from Automatic quality, Normal (about 96 Kbps, not bad for mobile), High, or Extreme (320KBps, for silky-smooth sound). For download quality, your choices are similar: Normal, High, and Extreme. Naturally, the better your streaming or download quality, the more bandwidth and storage you'll consume.

Spotify Android Settings

However, Although the Spotify Android app retains the benefits and features of the Spotify desktop, they also have the same flaws and limitations. You can only download Spotify music as encrypted OGG format, which is limited for many purposes. If you've ever tried using one of your Spotify songs as your smartphone ringtone, then you must end in failure. The encrypted OGG files we downloaded with our Spotify Android app are unavailable for using as the call-in ringtone, or the alarm ringtone.

It's popular and cool to set our favorite music as the ringtone. But it seems to be impossible with the limitations of Spotify itself.

So, please allow me to introduce to you the best Spotify helper, which can greatly help to improve your Spotify music experience and exploit more roles for Spotify music. If you are restricted and annoyed while using Spotify, please continue reading this article and we will introduce the best solution for you.
