Spotify Presents An Intimate Evening With Shane McAnally

1. Mix it up with friends. If you鈥檙e planning a party with friends, make a collaborative playlist to figure out what you鈥檒l be listening to. To share your playlist, create a new one聽and then click those three dots under the playlist鈥檚 name. Hit 鈥淐ollaborative Playlist鈥 and then choose who you want to invite. They鈥檒l get a notification and the ability to add their favorite tracks.

2. Learn about your music.聽If you鈥檙e listening to a song and a 鈥淏ehind the lyrics鈥 button pops up in the lower right hand corner, click it. Not only will Spotify then show you all the lyrics to the song, it may even have analysis available for those confusing songs that don鈥檛 really make any sense.

3. Stay updated on concerts.聽In Spotify鈥檚 main 鈥淏rowse鈥 tab, there鈥檚 an option to see all concerts. The app will take a look at your location and the artists you frequently listen to. Then it will let you know if any happen to be coming to town soon. While your bank account may not like this feature, you will grow to love it.

4. Stay in sync.聽Spotify Running is one of the best things to ever happen to runners. The amazing (mobile-only) feature takes a look at how fast you鈥檙e running and curates a playlist to go perfectly in time with your footsteps. It鈥檚 an amazing tool for pushing yourself through those grueling last minutes of any run.

5. Crossfade. Fake some DJ skills and set up crossfade so there鈥檚 never an awkward gap between songs. If you鈥檙e ever having a party, all your guests will be impressed. To set it up, go to Edit >> Preferences >> Advanced settings. Activate the 鈥淐rossfade songs鈥 option underneath playback. You can adjust how long you would like each song to last and then sit back and soak up the compliments.

6. Make your searches better.聽If you鈥檙e looking for a specific artist or album on Spotify, you can hone in your searches and make them more efficient. For example, to search only through album names, type 鈥淎lbum:EMOTION SIDE B鈥 and Spotify will make sure you get directly to that Carly Rae Jepsen goodness.

7. Make your phone do double duty.聽If your computer and your phone are synced up to the same WiFi, you can play music from your computer鈥檚 speakers, using your phone as a remote. Just go to 鈥淎vailable devices,鈥 and select where you would like the music to come from. You can control which song plays, pause and fast forward from the Spotify app 鈥 all without ever touching the actual device that鈥檚 playing the music.

8. Get personal. Tweet customer service聽@SpotifyCares聽for a personalized playlist, made just for you. Be nice and see what surprises they鈥檒l whip up for you.

9. Stay organized. If you鈥檙e someone who makes a LOT of playlists, keep them all in order with folders. Just go to File >> New Playlist Folder. Then name the new folder and drag your playlists in.聽We recommend making different playlists for the seasons or your moods, but you do you and organize whichever way feels best.
