I have the settings in the desktop app set to "high quality". So if I play a song through the desktop app, it is for sure coming in at 320kb quality? Do I have to download it to get that quality?
Also, I see no change in the webplayer, but I read that with Premium account the files will play at 256kb automatically. Is this correct? How can I verify the quality?
Solved! Go to Solution.
There is a way to check what the audio quality is that you're streaming. It's using the console and you have to be rather fast to catch the right moment when the console outputs this. I'll show you what mine put out:
If you want to see what it shows on your end, do this:
1. Close Spotify.
2. Open the Run app (hit Windows Logo + R)
3. Write this in it:
Now Spotify will open along with a Command Prompt window that puts out pretty much everything the client is doing and it can look like a cascading river at first.
Now, you can hit play on any track and see what the console says.
If you want time to read, take a screenshot of the right place (you can scroll a limited amount in the commandline) and paste it in MS Paint or something to take a closer look.
Note (small, but important): Closing the command line will also close Spotify.
Let me know if you need more help with this! 🙂
