Bad Performance With Spotify Pon Mac

Close unresponsive apps and processes

When your system is acting sluggish or simply not responding, an app or process may be the source of the problem. You can use Activity Monitor to locate the troublesome app or process and force it to quit.

Turns out, there are a few different ways to boost a Mac's volume level, some of which work system-wide, and others that are app-specific. Option #1: System-Wide Volume Booster & Equalizer (Paid) Boom 2 is an incredibly intuitive and beautifully designed volume booster and equalizer that works system-wide on Mac OS X, specifically for Yosemite. The audio often stutters. I'm using Spotify Premium. The Mac and Apple TV are connected to the same home WiFi network. The WiFi network is not busy and my broadband is quite fast (50Mbs download speed). I don't think it is a network issue because things work fine if I use Spotify on my iPhone. If you are experiencing any issue (s) with latency, frozen screen, poor quality audio, or meeting getting disconnected while using a home or non-enterprise WiFi connection, try the following: Watch a video about WiFi connectivity Check your Internet bandwidth using an online speed test, such as nperf, Speedtest, or Comparitech.

See how much energy your Mac is using

You can find out how much energy your Mac is using, and see which apps or processes are using the most energy.

See real-time CPU, network, or disk status in the Dock

It’s easy to keep an eye on your system status without even looking at the Activity Monitor window—you can monitor your CPU, network, or disk usage as a live graph right in the Dock.

To explore the Activity Monitor User Guide, click Table of Contents at the top of the page, or enter a word or phrase in the search field.

Use the app to play music files stored on your device, which we call local files.

Note: Files or downloads from illegal sources are not permitted.

For: Premium

  1. On desktop, import your local files (with the 'Desktop' steps).
  2. Add the files to a new playlist.
  3. Log in on your mobile or tablet using the same WiFi as your desktop.
  4. Go to Settings > Local Files and switch on Local audio files.
    Note: You need to allow Spotify to find devices in the prompt that shows.
  5. Download the playlist with your local files.

Didn’t work?

Make sure:

  • You're logged in to the same account on both your desktop and mobile
  • Your devices are connected to the same WiFi network
  • The app is up-to-date on both devices
  • Your device is up-to-date
  • The Spotify app has access to your local network. Check in your iPhone/iPad settings under Spotify

For: Premium

  2. Add the files to a new playlist.
  3. Log in on your mobile or tablet using the same WiFi as your desktop.
  4. Download the playlist with your local files.

  1. Click , then Settings.
  2. Scroll to Local Files and switch Show Local Files on.
  3. Switch off any sources you don't want.
  4. Click ADD A SOURCE to select another folder.

Music from that folder is now in Local Files in the menu on the left.

Supported file types

Note: Some of your files may be protected in restricted formats. Install QuickTime on your computer to allow most of these tracks to be played on Spotify.

  • .mp3
  • .m4p (unless it contains video)
  • .mp4 (if QuickTime is installed on your computer)

The iTunes lossless format (M4A) isn't supported.

If your file isn’t supported, we do our best to match it with songs from the Spotify catalog. The version we match with might differ from the original.
