It wasn’t always this easy to purchase your favorite songs and albums. For example, when you first began listening to music you had to buy your music one album at a time on a cassette or CD.
This is the ultimate listening experience. Now you can enjoy all of your favorite songs right from your phone. Listening to it will eat up your data plan, but the hacks should get you through without any trouble.
We’ve got some insider tips with you so we’re not going to breeze through all your data listening to Spotify.
How much data does Spotify use?
Streaming music is very bandwidth intensive. It takes approximately 500 KB of data to stream one minute of music. If you do the math (or if we do), that means you can stream approximately three hours and twenty minutes of music with one gigabyte of data.
You might be thinking, “I don’t listen to Spotify nearly that much” so you should be fine.
Don’t forget that streaming music, surfing the web, and social media all user data. These things can also eat up your data allowance in the long run. It’s an approximation, but they’re different services.
Whether you have Spotify free, Spotify premium, or both, your data usage will vary based on your audio quality, which can change depending on numerous factors.
How do you reduce Spotify’s data usage?
If you use Wi-Fi to stream music from Spotify, there are essentially two ways to use less data: use Wi-Fi or modify Spotify’s app settings. Let’s start with Wi-Fi.
1. Download songs via Wi-Fi ahead of time
If you want to save on data use, then do your data-heavy tasks while connected to Wi-Fi.
Wi-Fi doesn’t pull from your data allotment when you’re using the internet via Wi-Fi.
If you want to make the most of your Spotify experience, you need to listen to music in all the places where you have access to WiFi.
Spotify makes it easy to download songs you want to listen to later. If you’re going to be driving, you might want to download some of your favorite shows to your Kindle or phone while connected to the Internet.
That way you don’t waste any precious mobile data watching YouTube videos, or anything else you’d rather do than look at your phone while you’re meeting someone important.
2. Change your Spotify settings
Of course, you don’t always know what song you want to listen to in advance.
You see a billboard for a tuxedo shop, it reminds you of prom, and you want to turn it up and dance to it until it’s over. It’ll make your whole day better.
You can modify the settings on Spotify so that it uses less data while streaming the old-fashioned way.
