[Mobile] Separate Streaming Quality for Wifi and mobile Data

I use Spotify when I'm at home (connected to wifi) and also when I'm away from home (connected to limited data connection - 100MB per day), and every time I must remember to change the streaming quality from settings (Android app).

It could be useful to have a setting for choosing wifi streaming quality and another setting for data connection streaming quality

Hey folks! This is still very much under consideration by our teams. As soon a we have more info about this we will post here. Thanks for your feedback!

Hey there.

 

I use at home 21 Mbps 3G DC-HSPA+ router (unlimited for 13 € month) and I have good speed 10-21 Mbps from mobilenetwork. However in my smartphone I have only 256 kbps unlimited speed for 2,90 € which is my monthfee incl. internet and 100 min voice to my network. I know, I use sometimes Spotify at home using my mobilephone using wifi, but changing quality manually is pain.

 

I would like this idea to be implemented so on mobile network I would like use 160 kbps and on wifi network 320 kbps. However also automatical option would be good so if I'm on poor area, Spotify should automatically try 96 kbps sound.

 

Thanks.

This needs another bump I have found requests dating back to 2012 its just absurd this simple option is not available.


Everyone has cellular data plans and usage is a concern, such usage concerns dont exist over wifi and we can use a great high bitrate/quality setting, once we are outside a wifi network it should automatically switch to a seperate cellular setting we have designated at a different bitrate. Every streaming audio/video app i ever used includes this, i just dont understand how this is not an option on the iphone or android app given the simplicity and sheer importance of it. 

 

I have many selfish requests on this forum and they will not be bumped because  i understand not everyone can benefit or would see value, but I believe every spotify user with a data plan can benefit from this idea which again is present in literally any other streaming audio video app i have used.

Btw what are we supposed to do? Those who already expressed their discontent? Just wait until they respond? So that they could lock this thread as inactive...
