Add a key which you can hold to temporarily pause music

Hi everyone, and if youre new to the community, welcome!

Sorry for the spam of ideas, I just thought of a few things to do with pausing etc. and I can't put them into the same idea as multiple ideas within one is not allowed :P

 

Well, I was thinking that Spotify could add an option in the preferences where the user can select a key that they can hold, and during the time it is being held, spotify pauses. When it is released, spotify plays again.

Being someone who plays on Vatsim quite a lot, it would help for me when communicating with Atc, as when I speak I need to press a button to talk, and so I could get Spotify to pause when I need to talk and play again when I stop talking.

 

Just a thought!

Alright, as mentioned there's a similar idea about a global hotkey for pause here:

Would you be ok to link it to the idea of the global hotkeys for pause, etc?

I think it's pretty much the same effect if you pause/start by clicking a button twice or press a button long for one time.

Let me know what you think. ;)
