Hey @Denial94

 

That's a weird issue!

Could you tell me:

1. when this started happening?

2. if the issue is still there when you use Spotify on another computer (if possible)?

3. is the issue still there when you toggle crossfade off and then back on?
4. does this happen to all the albums, or just some specific ones?

 

The best I can offer right now is performing a reinstallation of the client. This should wipe out weird issues like this.

 

Looking forward to hearing from you!

1. I noticed it month ago I was not taking care about that before.

2. It's happening on PC, Android. All apps are updated to latest version

3. Yes, It's happening all time after reclicking crossfade option on PC and Android.

4. It's happens to all songs when next song is from the same album.

For example:  I have music album with tracks 1-3.

Crossfade is not working when Track 1 is ending and Track 2 starts to play.

But, when Track 1 is ending and then Track 3 is starting to play (shuffle) then crossfade is working.

 

Can you check it on your PC/Android  device? Enable crossfade and then start to play any music album. Once with shuffle off and once with shuffle on.

So I pulled Spotify up on my father's machine (fresh install and everything).
Win7 64bit on a Latitude E6410.

Set crossfade to 12 seconds (just to make it as obvious as possible).
Shuffling the album, crossfade works neatly. Very good.
Taking shuffle off... It doesn't seem to work. It may play into another song, but without any smooth fading. Tried turning hardware acceleration off, doesn't work that way either.
Playing an album where songs are already running into one another sounds more like as if I'm playing the CD, gapless, no crossfade whatsoever.

 

I don't have an Android device to try this on, sadly.

Maybe when playing the album as is, crossfade is turned off for... more authentic album playback? I know quite a few albums where songs already are running into each other. I sadly can't find any information about it, but you're not the only one.

I seem to be having the same problem. Crossfade only works if the next song is not on the same album as the song currently playing. Doesn't matter if I'm on an artist's page or a playlist.

This is extremely dumb. Its pretty much only when I'm listening to albums that I want them to crossfade.

I'm seeing the same issue. Crossfading does not work when you're playing two songs that are sequential on an album. I understand wanting to listen to an album "as is," but if I wanted to do that I would turn the crossfade feature off. Would love to see a fix for this!

 

EDIT: I should note that I'm on a Mac, not Windows, and am still seeing this. I came across this thread via Google while searching for a solution.
