Listening to your favorite Spotify playlist while walking down the street or commuting to work? Ever had issues with Spotify buffering or stuttering on your iPhone or Android smartphone? It’s time to solve this issue once and for all. Enjoy uninterrupted Spotify streaming of your favorite audio tracks, wherever you may be.
Use EdgeWise to rescue your Internet connectivity. Read below to see how it works.
Spotify uses the active Internet connection on your smartphone. Whether you’re commuting by bus, train or just walking down the street, you probably use public WiFi networks. As you move around, the signal strength of the WiFi hotspot you’re connected to will change, resulting in a change in speed performance. When you’re nearing the edge of a WiFi hotspot, it’s highly likely you will get a non-functional Internet connection.
Also, sometimes your phone connects to a bad WiFi hotspot. This means that although it’s connected to WiFi, it doesn’t have any Internet connectivity.
In both cases – edge of WiFi and bad WiFi connection – your iPhone doesn’t know you don’t have a working connection to the Internet. The iPhone or Android smartphone will stay connected to the WiFi hotspot (even if it doesn’t work) until:
- it finds a stronger signal for the same WiFi network;
- it detects another known WiFi network to connect to;
- it will switch to cellular eventually.
During all this “waiting” time, Spotify will not be able to load and stream your music.
If your smartphone cannot find any known WiFi networks nearby, it’ll switch between WiFi and cellular. The problem is that natively iPhones and Android smartphones prefer WiFi connections rather than cellular ones. Even if your WiFi connection is poor and slow, your phone will stay clinged to that while it’s in its range. Only after it loses signal, will it switch to cellular.
In this case, as you get away from the hotspot, your speed drops and Spotify will begin to stutter until your smartphone switches to cellular.
EdgeWise is an app for your iPhone and Android smartphone. Just push the button to activate it and it runs in the background, acting as a connection manager:
- EdgeWise constantly monitors the quality of the WiFi signal.
- Once you step out of your WiFi range or connect to a bad hotspot, EdgeWise seamlessly moves your traffic over to your cellular connection.
- When you’re back in range of a good WiFi hotspot, EdgeWise moves your traffic back to WiFi to conserve potentially expensive cellular connections.
This way, EdgeWise rescues you from bad WiFi hotspots and connection gaps.
We recommend you get EdgeWise primarily if your phone loses connectivity often or when the WiFi Internet is too slow. Being powered by Speedify fast bonding VPN, EdgeWise also encrypts all your traffic to and from the Internet. So, you get both a stable Internet and a secure one.
EdgeWise is free to use for 3 hours per day. If you need us to rescue your Spotify connectivity 24/7 or you want to help save owls, get a monthly or yearly subscription starting at $1.66 / month.
