[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.

Very stupid and unprofessional answer...

The latest update is from 2018.  Any changes to this decision?  Desktop EQ would improve the experience greatly!

I thought it was just me being thick and not finding the equalizer. I can't believe this is their official position. Can you be any more amateur?

By the way, since these clowns might very well sit content at this forever,  there are some alternatives out there: Equalizer APO with the Peace interface work pretty fine.

Pretty silly to have EQ for mobile and not for PC/Mac.  Higher grade phones and speakers connected to laptops and desktops owned by users who value sound quality are likely some of Spotify's more devoted (and less cost-conscious) customers.  From a customer retention standpoint it is a TOTAL strategy no-brainer.

Come on Spotify. This is 2022. How come a mainstream audio application does not have Equalizer? Even Winamp had it more than 20 years ago. Even the Spotify mobile versions have had since forever. No idea who or why decided it was not required for the Desktop version, but it was clearly a very bad decision. I'm glad to see it's not being considered.

Please get implemented as soon as possible.

This is a MUCH-needed function for the windows version of the app.  I have so much trouble setting the equalizer on my iPhone app, then playing Spotify on my desktop and the sound is weird, too much bass, too much treble, etc., and I can't change it on the desktop.  I have log out of the desktop and open the app on the phone and change to another sound setting, and then start the process all over again until I find the right equalizer setting.

 

Please add the same or better equalizer setting to the desktop version of Spotify!  This will be a major improvement.

I'm very happy to see that after being discarded, our idea was accepted and implemented!

I'm no Shure where I can find it, though... looked everywhere and couldn't find it...

 

Didn't find an updated version of the software, also...
