The Spotify service enables you to stream your favorite types of music on a computer or mobile device. Normally, a song on Spotify completely ends before another one plays. If you want to have a continuous stream of music, you can use the "Crossfade" feature. This option blends two songs together, and can result in a smoother listening experience.

Click "Edit" on the menu bar, if you are using a Windows computer. On a Mac, click "Spotify" instead. Choose "Preferences."

Step 2

Scroll down to the options are marked "Playback." A list of options is shown.

Click the check box labelled "Crossfade Tracks."
