You may be listening to Spotify on a web player and then when you try to find the Settings, you are not able to find it. So, how to find Settings on the Spotify web player? According to the Mash Tips site, on the Spotify web player, there are a number of Spotify features which are missing. So, if you enjoy Spotify on a web player, it will not be the same as enjoying it on desktop apps or mobile apps. Now, how about settings on the Spotify web player? Is it available? Let’s find out the information about Settings on Spotify web player below.
Finding Spotify Settings on Web Player
In 2019, there was a user who asked on Community Spotify about accessing the settings page on web player and he said that he could not download the desktop app because he had a chromebook. And the response is that now there is no settings option in the web player and if your chromebook is Google Play Store enabled, you are able to download the Android version of the Spotify app from the Google Play Store. If you use the Spotify app on your Chromebook, you will be able to use Premium features like finding settings and downloading music for offline listening.
Well, from that explanation, we can understand that on Web Player, there is no Settings option. If you want to access Settings, you have to access Spotify from apps.
