I recently got myself a pair of spanking new headphones and a home theatre system. With my premium Spotify subscription, I am able to stream music at 320kbps and that makes for a pretty nice listening experience.
Here’s my problem. Streaming high quality music like that consumes quite a bit of data. On my limited cellular connection, I wouldn’t mind listening to music at a lower quality (data is both limited and EXPENSIVE), however, I don’t mind consuming more data when i’m on a limitless Wifi connection at home.
I’d love to see a simple setting like the one shown below implemented in the Spotify mobile app. That would be pretty useful to me:
What i’d like to see:
When I tap on Extreme, a gray box slides out from the right with options for me to pick either Cellular or WiFi.
I then proceed to tap Normal and select Cellular.
This is what it would look like after setting up.
Upon doing some research on the web, it seems that this is also a feature that has requested for in the Spotify forums since 2013! I’m not really sure why it’s taken them so long to implement a small change like this.
Update: On hindsight, after thinking about the suggestion, I realised it didn’t make any sense whatsoever to do it that way. The easiest way I could think of doing it would be like this:
I chose the stars because I thought it would be most familiar to users. Everyone uses on-demand apps nowadays and the stars represent quality or satisfaction.
