There’s more to the Spotify app for Android and iOS than simply streaming your favorite artists or Spotify’s premixed radio stations. Indeed, the Spotify mobile app is capable of some pretty clever tricks once you know what you’re doing.

For starters, it’s easy to download a Spotify radio mix to your phone for on-the-go playback without putting a dent in your monthly mobile data allowance—and indeed, you can set Spotify to stay offline completely, if the need arises. You can also tweak the quality of your audio streaming and music downloads, keep playing tunes even when your playlist is over, “crossfade” from one song to another, and more.

Note: Several of the features and settings we’ll be covering require a “premium” Spotify subscription, which will set you back about $10 a month. (Psst! You can easily score a 30-day free Spotify Premium trial with the right Google search).

1. Play your radio stations offline

Whether they’re based on a song, an artist, or a particular “mood,” Spotify’s radio stations are perfect for playing endless tunes at home over Wi-Fi. If you’re out and about, though, you might not relish the idea of streaming all that music over cellular, or perhaps you’re on a subway, soaring at cruising altitude, or otherwise unable to get a wireless connection.

2. Listen to Spotify offline, and only offline

Once you’ve got some radio stations saved for offline playback, you might want to be sure that you don’t accidentally start streaming Spotify tunes over your cellular connection, particularly given Spotify’s AutoPlay feature (which I’ll cover in a moment).
