        By default, the feature is set to mix music with crossfade in 6 seconds. You can modify this setting by the feature’s slider. Then just click “OK” to save the new settings.

        Remember that the crossfadeworks very well when using playlists and “infinite mode” of songs scrolling in Apple Music. For albums, merging stops working on the last track.

        Unfortunately, crossfade

          is not available for Apple mobile devices, ie iPhone and the iPad. Despite that, you can find it in the app’s Android version settings. We can only hope that Apple will release the feature for all its operating systems.
