The most popular third-party apps to use with Spotify on Android
Spotify allows users to link their accounts to other applications and services. Thanks to third-party developers, we have apps that display better statistics about your playing habits, audio equalizers, ad exclusion apps, and more to make the most of your streaming platform. Below are some handy apps you can use with Spotify on your phone.
1. Spotify for spotters
Spotistats is a useful app for those who don’t like to wait until the end of the year for Spotify Wrapped. It provides insight into your most performed songs and artists, followed by the transfer history and how many times you have listened to the song or artist.
You can also see what genres you listen to and the type of music (lively, energetic, spoken, dance, instrumental, etc.). Furthermore, it displays global rankings and allows you to share your quick stats via Instagram or other social media.
All in all, this is an amazing app where you can see statistics about your listening, including the best songs, artists, albums and detailed information by song. All you have to do is log in and connect to your Spotify account.
2. SpotifyTools for Spotify
SpotifyTools is a similar but simple app that lets you quickly browse the best songs, top artists, and search for artists or songs on your playlists and in the library. It shows you statistics about the songs you’ve listened to the most in weeks, months, and years. You can check the same for artists.
Each song displays details like its popularity, valence, acoustics, energy, liveliness and more. This is followed by the tempo of the song, the volume, the release date and the genre.
There’s a unique song tracking feature that allows you to keep track of how long you’ve been listening to a particular artist or song with millisecond precision. However, to do this, you will need to allow the application to run in the background.
Like Spotistat, you can share your flow statistics on Instagram stories and other social networking apps. All in all, it’s a good alternative to spotters.
3. SpotiQ-equalizer for Spotify
SpotiQ is an equalizer designed specifically for Spotify. It comes with several preset settings, including Classic, Heavy Metal, Pop, Jazz, Hip Hop, etc. You can also adjust the treble, midrange and bass manually. In addition, there is a built-in bass boost system and automatic boost control.
SpotiQ automatically downloads song data from Spotify. This allows you to set a specific equalizer for each song or album. For example, you can set one song to play with higher bass, while another plays with high treble – the app will remember it.
Since Spotify does not have a built-in equalizer, you can use SpotiQ to adjust the sound playback and enjoy the music as you wish.
4. Mutify- Mute Spotify Ads
The free version of Spotify comes with annoying audio ads. Fortunately, you can opt out of these ads without paying Premium using the Mutify app.
For starters, Mutify doesn’t block ads – it’s something that’s only available to Spotify premium users. Instead, it relies on mute each time the ad is played.
All you need to do is install the app, enable the service, and grant the necessary permissions. It will then automatically mute repetitive audio ads during playback. Here’s our detailed guide to opting out of Spotify ads at no premium.
5. Makromusic- Find Your Music Buddy
Makromusic helps you find your music friend. You can use it to discover and talk to people who have the same musical taste as you.
After linking your Spotify account, the app pulls your favorite artists and songs you’ve already listened to. Then you get along with the people closest to you or listen to the same music at the same time.
You can start chatting after reviewing the profiles of the people you match. Synchronization is done by instantly pairing with people who are listening to the same song as you at the same time, synchronizing them by profile or using the Discover page.
Try it if you like hanging out with people who have the same musical taste as yours.
Remove app access from your Spotify account
Some of the above apps require you to sign in and connect to your Spotify account. If you don’t like the app, remove its access from your Spotify account.
To do this, go to the Applications page. Sign in with your Spotify account if you haven’t already. You will now see all the applications that have access to your Spotify data. To disconnect from the application, click Remove access next to the name.
Conclusion- Enjoy an enhanced Spotify app experience
These were some of the best third-party apps you can use with Spotify on your Android phone. Of all things, my favorite is Spotistati, purely because of the statistics it offers.
