Get The New Spotify Update With Gapless Playback And Crossfade Today.
Spotify today announced 2 new significant features to it’s music streaming service, Gapless Playback and Crossfade.
Gapless Playback lets the tracks you are listening to flow seamlessly, one to the next, without that annoying 2 second silence inbetween. This feature will be fantastic when you are listening to albums that were meant to be heard in their entirety, such as any by Radiohead, or PInk Floyd’s ‘The Dark Side Of The Moon’ which has recently landed on Spotify.
Do you fancy yourself as a DJ? Well the crossfade feature will appeal to you, as it allows you to fade out one track as you bring another in.
The full list of features for this release are:
- Gapless playback (‘on’ by default)
- Crossfade support (‘on’ via Preferences)
- Faster artist browsing
- New save and restore feature for ‘Now Playing’
- Improved Subscribe, Buddy List and Favourites options
- Drag & drop fixed on Windows
- ‘Hide purchase buttons’ option (Premium-users only)
- ‘Offline Mode’ via Spotify menu
