Spotify has a crossfade feature. What is it? It is a feature which is used to remove silence in between songs so that the song will play on and on. As explained on the How To Geek site, it is like when you are listening to a live DJ where one song does not stop playing and the tracks transition into each one another.
If you want to crossfade songs in Spotify, you can do that by following the steps which are explained below according to the Politics-DZ site. However, it is important for you to note that I only found the information about how to crossfade on Spotify PC and Smartphone.

Crossfading Songs on Spotify Web Player
The information that I got when I tried to find the information about how to crossfade songs on the Spotify web player is about how to crossfade songs on Spotify PC and Smartphone. I could not find the information about how to crossfade songs on the Spotify web player.
However, I found a question from a Spotify user in 2017 on the Community Spotify site where he/she could not find any crossfade option within the web player. She/he used Chrome, but checked that already on Explorer and could not find such option. Then, another user answered that right now the web player does not have a crossfade option. It means that you cannot crossfade songs on Spotify if you access it on a web player.
The question and answer above were in 2017. I do not know whether now Spotify web player has added a crossfade option or not, but when I tried to access Spotify on the web player, I could not find that option. However, you are able to try to access the Spotify web player by yourself and check it in the Settings. If it is available, you will see the crossfade option there.
On howto.inadram.com, it is also explained that you are not able to enable the crossfade option through Spotify Web Player. If you want to crossfade, you need to have Spotify apps. You are only able to enable and control the crossfade feature through Spotify apps such as on your mobile, tablet, and desktop apps. You are not permitted to enable, disable, or control crossfade using the Spotify Web Player.
As a bonus, there is some other information about Spotify below according to the Community Spotify site.
What Do We Have To Do To Change Our Country Settings?
According to the Community Spotify, here is the explanation about changing your country settings. Actually, if you have Premium, you are able to use Spotify anywhere in the world. However, if you move to another country permanently, you have to update your country settings on Spotify by logging in to your account page. Then, you have to click on Update beside your payment method under Your Plan. Now, you have to enter a new payment method which was issued in your new country. This change will apply from your next billing date.
If you are on Spotify Free, you can use it in a different country for up to 14 days. After 14 days, you may see an error message. If you want to continue to use Spotify, you have to update your country. It can be done by firstly accessing your account page and then clicking on Edit Profile. After that, you have to scroll down to Country and choose your new country from the dropdown list. Then, you have to click Save Profile.
Why Can’t We Find The Music We Are Looking For?
As explained on the Community Spotify site, there are a lot of people in the Community who have requested certain tracks, albums or artists to be added to Spotify. The Spotify team wants to have all of the world’s music available on Spotify, but they are adding great music every week and hopefully your choice will be up soon.
