How to fade between songs in the Apple Music app on Mac

Playback Crossfade Songs Music Mac

Rather than hearing an abrupt silence between your favorite songs in the Music app, you can have them fade in and out. This offers a nice transition between songs because as one fades out, another fades in.

While the feature to make this happen isn’t currently available on iPhone, it is available in Music on Mac. So if you play your tunes there, here’s how to fade between songs.

Enable Crossfade in the Mac Music app

1) Open the Music app on your Mac and select Music > Preferences from the menu bar.

2) Select the Playback tab.

3) Check the box for Crossfade Songs.

4) Move the slider next to the box for the number of seconds you want for the fade in and fade out.

Enable Crossfade Songs Music Mac

Now when you play your songs in the Music app, you’ll hear songs fade in and out rather than just have silence between them.

Note that if you play an entire album of songs in order, Crossfade Songs is disabled by default.
