Spotify is the most used music streaming service in the world, and probably it is the one that simply offers you the most varieties of music. Hence, as a result, now it has almost completely replaced the physical CDs, but, the fact is that not all the time it offers the same audio quality.

What is certain is that, despite the ignorance of many of its users, the well-known music streaming platform Spotify has several levels of sound quality and we can configure it to get the exact audio quality according to our needs.

Why we should change the sound quality of music on Spotify?

As we told earlier that Spotify is a streaming service and it has to consider the data consumption of its users. So, it offers the option to change the sound output quality. If you are running low on data, you can switch to a low sound quality which will help you save some data.

Apart from Streaming, the app also offers an option to download music. You can even choose to download your favorite music in different qualities.

Therefore, changing the audio quality in Spotify is one of its key functions when our data is at risk, hence, the reduced audio quality will simply reduce the weight of the files.
