Hey @AnthonyDubai.


Thanks for getting in touch!


There is some Playback settings that are disabled when streaming via Connect. Crossfade is one of them. Perhaps you could stream via Bluetooth as it would enable you to keep crossfade.


Hope this answers your question. Let us know if there is something we can do for you.


Have a nice day!

I echo the frustration of crossfade not working on connect devices.

yes we could Bluetooth tracks to the speaker, but then whats the point of having a smart speaker ?


can we see support for crossfading on connect devices please

I share in this frustration! It is extremely ridiculous that one is unable to crossfade on a smart TV.

what is the point then?

please kindly look into this! The complaint has been ongoing for over 3 years. These are little things that makes companies loose loyal customers. Don’t underestimate the importance pls.

Not a lot of innovation going on

Can we expect this feature somewhere in the near future? 😕

I agree. We have smart televisions all through the house and even in our recently constructed basement that serves as an entertainment spot for my family. We are so frustrated with the cross fade function not being available. It puts a damper on the party when there’s silence between songs. If we have to use our phones to use the cross fade function, what’s the purpose of even having a Spotify connect? 

WiFi streaming is far superior to Bluetooth but STILL no crossfade function. If I want it I have to use Bluetooth which makes WiFi streaming obsolete. Come on Spotify   you can,should be doing better! You make huge amounts of money. SORT IT OUT!
