Missing volume control iOS app

Missing volume control iOS app

I used to be able to control the volume from within the Spotify app (playing on a Bluetooth device), but now it seems like the only way is for me to use the hardware buttons on the phone. 

I need my music to be playing at a different volume than the things on my phone (ie Instagram and TikTok). How do I get the volume control bar back?

There is a volume bar on my iOS device on the lock screen. I use my old phone with wifi Bose speaker. 

The lock screen has foward/back pause/play and volume bar.

Mine doesn’t have it on the Lock Screen either. But in your comment “my old phone” is a tip off that it likely uses an old version of the app or iOS that used to have it, like mine used to. 

Hey folks,


Thanks for reaching out.


It's currently not possible to control the volume for the Spotify app separately, however we do appreciate your feedback and we've forwarded it to the relevant team.

Seriously? That’s a pretty bog standard feature in a music app, is it not? I’ve been swearing over the same problem for a long time.

Is this fixed? My volume button on ipad dont work anymore. Any other way to control spotify volume?



Is there any update on this? I use the volume control all the time on my computer, so I can listen at low volumes whilst putting on things like rain sounds to study. However, I can’t do this on my phone, which is a big miss to me. 

Could you please consider adding this feature? It sounds like it used to be a feature anyway.


Many thanks.
