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.
