Spotify Adds an Equalizer in Latest iOS Update

Spotify has just updated its iOS app, and whadda ya know – there’s an equalizer now.

Sprung out of strong support for the idea in Spotify’s community ideas pages, the new equalizer appears in the playback settings inside your app.

It’s a pretty basic equalizer, but still allows users a good amount of control over their playback. You can adjust each level manually, or select from 22 pre-determined settings like ‘Rock’, ‘Bass booster’ and ‘Electronic’.

As far as other platforms go, Spotify already has a native equalizer to be found in its Android app’s ‘Audio Effects’ settings. Looking to a broader implementation, you’re just going to have to drum up enough interest for it:

It seems odd that Spotify for iOS went this long without an equalizer, but when you think about it, you just don’t see equalizers as often in modern streaming apps as you did in programs, let’s say, a decade ago. We wholeheartedly welcome an old-school equalizer.
