If you're getting bored listening to the same track, you might want to change it a little bit and give some sauce to it. And this is what Spotify DJ mode has been working on. Under this mode, you can blend songs with an equalizer and get a smooth transition by using the crossfade feature.

Or you can apply Spotify songs to a third-party DJ app and do everything you want to customize the playback of your favorite songs on these apps. But recently Spotify has ended supporting these apps. Nevermind, after reading this you'll learn how you still can DJ with Spotify in these apps.

How to Use DJ Mode on Spotify?

In this part, I'll introduce two ways to use DJ Mode for Spotify and you can DJ with Spotify while you're alone or with friends.

Method 1: Use Built-in Spotify DJ Mode

Step 1: Open Spotify on your mobile phone

Step 2: Start playing a playlist you want to DJ with

Step 3: Go back to your home page and tap the cog icon in the upper-right corner.

Step 4: Under Crossfade, adjust the crossfade time between songs.

Step 5: Go back to settings, then scroll down to Music Quality > Equalizer.

Step 6: You can adjust the low, mid, and treble parameters on the control panel or use the presets.

Method 2: Start A Spotify Group Session

If you want to have a party-like mode to listen to Spotify songs with your friends especially when you're not physically with them, you can start a group session to listen together with your friends virtually.

To start a group session on Spotify:

Step 1: Open Spotify on phone or tablet

Step 2: Play a song and tap the Connect button at the bottom left of the screen

Step 3: Under Group session, tap START SESSION

Step 4: Tap INVITE FRIENDS to share the invitation to your friends. Everyone who joins the session can add or delete tracks on the playlist and listen to the same song together simultaneously.

While Virtual DJ is a strong tool throughout, it's an exceptionally useful tool for beginners. The software automates a lot of the setup and "grunt work" of being a DJ which allows beginners to focus more on the mixing and create DJ sets that make the crowd go wild.

But Spotify doesn't Support Third-Party DJ Apps Anymore

But here's how you still can DJ with Spotify songs. Keep reading.

DJ with Spotify on Third-Party DJ Apps Offline(Latest Update)
