Thank you victor1100, this was driving me nuts (being stuck with the last EQ settings on my Pixel 4a). The MusicFX workaround was a godsend. Now using Wavelet EQ app.

I have a Pixel 2. It doesn't have its own Equalizer. I used to access inbuilt Equalizer option in Spotify and it has disappeared all of a sudden. Please fix this asap. Thank you.


Plan: Family

Country: USA

Device: Pixel 4a 5G

Operating System: Android 12


I believe I noticed this early after the transition to Android 12.


Spotify Premium Android

App version:

I too observed this sudden disappearance of the Equalizer option from settings. the option simply opens Android's native equalizer (unless some other eq like Dolby is present) and was very crucial for me to adjust music and enjoy it to the best extent. 


Poco Phone X3 NFC

Equalizer disappeared on Monday 04th Oct.

No new versions of Android or UI was installed before this happened. 


Same problem here since the start of this week


Spotify Premium on Android 11 (Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro)

App version:

I also haven't been able to access the equalizer on my Xiaomi Redmi 9 Pro for more than a week now. I really hope this problem will be solved soon 😞


My OnePlus 6T lost the Equalizer coincidentally in the same day as I did the 11.1.11 update (to Android 11), please tell me the EQ wasn't removed and that you'll fiz it soon


After update the equalizer settings are missing...

I use different settings for home system, phone speaker and headphones. Equalizer goes hand in hand with high quality stream.

Please don't let it be one of those features that are removed because few people use...
