Add thumb up and down buttons to Windows taskbar icon hover (like previous/next/pause)

I listen to the radio a ton while I work, and it's a pain to have to constantly switch back to Spotify to thumb up/down a track. It would be fantastic to have thumb up/down buttons added to the Windows taskbar icon hover, next to the previous/next/pause buttons.

 

The attachment shows what I am referring to.

A star button would also be nice...

I came to the site specifically to request this, and for the exact same reason. I hate having to switch between windows to like songs in my radio stations.

 

Please add this, Spotify!

Yea, I'm also totally up for this feature, shouldn't be too hard to implement.

A closely related idea is to add the radio thumbs up/down icons in the player controls area. I currently leave Spotify running in a window behind my other windows while I work, with just that area peaking out between windows at the bottom of the screen like this:

It would be great to be able to hit up or down without digging around to bring the app to the front.

 

Thanks for considering this idea (either on the player, the taskbar, or both)! It would make using the up/down arrows WAY easier!
