Does it seem like the music that you are listening to in Spotify on your iPhone is either too loud or too quiet? While adjusting the iPhone’s volume via the buttons on the side of the device can help to fix this, you might be looking for a result other than what is offered by that change.
Fortunately the iPhone Spotify app has its own volume level setting that you can choose. These volume levels help you to make your music louder if it seems to soft, or let you lower the volume level if the audio dynamics don’t seem as good as they should be with the current volume level setting.
How to Adjust the Volume Level in the iPhone Spotify App
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 7 Plus in iOS 11.3.2. The version of Spotify being used in this guide is the most current version of the app available when this article was written (184.108.40.2069)
Step 1: Open the Spotify app.
Step 2: Choose the Your Library tab at the bottom-right corner of the screen.
Step 3: Select the gear icon at the top-right corner of the screen.
Step 4: Choose the Playback option from the menu.
Step 5: Scroll down and select the desired option under Volume level.
As indicated on this screen, the available volume level options for the iPhone Spotify app are:
- Loud (might reduce dynamics)
- Quiet (Preserves dynamics)
Note that changing this setting will not affect the volume for any of the other apps on your device. This only changes the volume level for audio that you listen to through the Spotify app.
The Spotify iPhone app has a lot of other features and settings that you can adjust. Find out how to enable Stranger Things mode in Spotify if you would like to see an “Upside Down” theme when you listen to compatible playlists from the show.
