How to Enable Hardware Acceleration on Spotify

Enabling Hardware Acceleration on Spotify

Enabling and disabling hardware acceleration is a fairly straightforward process. On the Spotify desktop app, click on the three-dot icon at the top-left of the screen and go to Edit > Preferences.

Choose the preferences menu selection on Spotify.

Next, scroll down to the bottom, and click on the expansion menu button that says “Show Advanced Settings.”

Click the Spotify advanced settings menu option.

Scroll down to the bottom again, and “Enable Hardware Acceleration” will be the second-to-the-last option. Click the toggle button to change the setting. When it’s green, it’s turned on, and when it’s gray, it’s turned off.

Toggle the Spotify hardware acceleration option.

If you’re using macOS, then the process is much faster. Click “Spotify” on the menu bar, and click on “Hardware Acceleration” to toggle the setting on and off.
