2. Send a Particular Part of a Song

If you want your friend to listen to a song, but just a certain part of it, do the following:

Right-click on the song and choose Copy Spotify URI. Paste the link in a message and add # and how far in the song they should listen. Example: #2.01. When your friend enters the link, they’ll automatically hear the song from that second.

3. Choose a Specific Year

Let’s say you want to listen to David Bowie but you don’t want to bother scrolling through all his music, but rather listen to songs from 1997. Write the following in the search bar: David Bowie year:1997 and you’ll only see his songs from 1997.

6. Remove Gaps Between Songs

If you’re, for instance, having a party you probably don’t want the music to go silent between the songs. There’s an easy fix to this in your Account, choose Show Advanced Settings. Determine how much you want the songs to intertwine by adjusting the crossfade bar.
