  1. Open Spotify on Android.
  2. Tap the gear icon.
  3. Go down to the Music quality section.
  4. Go to Streaming.
  5. Select the desired quality (the lower, the less consumption).

There may be times when they're visually interesting, but if you're playing music without looking at your mobile, which is very common. The app allows you to disable them, which is a good way to save data and battery. It can be done this way:

  • Open the app.

So you should have this set up in the app by following these steps:

  1. Open the app.
  2. Tap the gear icon.
