How to Crossfade Songs in Spotify

Choose your music to crossfade and have seamless transitions from tracks

Crossfading eliminates the awkward silence between songs. It’s a useful feature particularly if you’re listening to your Spotify songs in an place which isn’t able to afford those gaps between songs. Crossfade seamlessly transitions tracks and makes them nearly unrecognizable from one another.

On Spotify You can’t just crossfade your music, but also select the length that the crossover fades. You can choose from zero to 12 seconds of duration for the transition. This is how you can crossfade your music across both of your Spotify devices: computer and mobile.

Tap and drag the white button on the slider that is next to the word ‘Crossfade’ to alter how much fade you’d like to have between your tracks.

The time you select for crossfading will reflect at the conclusion of the track. The next track will start at a certain amount of seconds ahead.

This means that you will cross fade to your new track.
