[Desktop] Equalizer for the Desktop Version

Status: Implemented

There should be an Equalizer for the Desktop version of Spotify.


Since Spotify's mobile apps now have an EQ setting, this should be implemented on the desktop version, too!
The EQ should come with various presets but also the ability to save your own custom settings.

Hey folks,


Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen.


We're happy to announce that the Equalizer option is now available on desktop - and is gradually rolling out to all users over the next week. You will be able to play around and customize the sound of your music for a better listening experience by toggling your Equalizer on your computers.




Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better, by participating here on the Community.


Everyone needs the EQ feature no matter what device they use. Make sure we all get the best sounds for the best music from the best provider—Spotify! Don't forget those of us still using laptops!


Wouldn´t it be great that each time they say "this is still not in current roadmap" they would at leat tell us in what are they working on?

Hey Folks!

Thanks to everyone for their contribution to this thread. We really appreciate it. In the interest of full disclosure, we’d like to share with you the status of this request.

After serious consideration, we’ve decided not to introduce an equalizer for the Desktop app at this time. As a result, we’ve marked this idea as Case Closed.

Although we appreciate many of you here would like to see an equalizer on the Desktop app, they are in fact used by a very small subset of listeners overall. We’ve therefore decided to focus our immediate attention and resources on features that have higher engagement at this time.

We may reassess this decision in the future. But, for now, we just wanted to keep everyone in the loop. Rest assured we’re constantly working to implement feature requests you make via the Ideas Exchange.
Thanks for understanding, and please keep those ideas and requests coming! Together we can make Spotify the best it can be.

That's a shame, many people would love this!


sorry but this was about apple devices


Thanks a lot fellow. It works perfectly. You can chose a preset audio or customize it which is what I have done. It is a good option. I guess the good thing is that not only works for Spotify, but also for any other audio source in the computer.




It desn't work.

you can try installing APO equalizer with Peace. it works for me.


why not? thats pretty slack
