Spotify new home feed

You can now watch music videos, documentaries and exclusive video series on Spotify, but did you know you could adjust the quality? Here’s how to do it in the app. 

As with Spotify’s audio quality settings, the app allows you to adjust the video quality for Wi-Fi and Cellular connections separately. This means that you can stream higher-resolution videos at home and still save data when you’re out and about.
