[Desktop] Choose between sowing or hiding the menubar & tray icon

Hello friends I have a god idea, letting to the users chose between the option of using the standard OS menubar on Spotify or hiding it directly by toggling a switch from the general settings section of the prefferences screen (this only could apply to the Linux and Windows apps) and if use the tray icon (being able to minimize Spotify to the tray) or not why? well the standard menubars looks very old in terms of app desig

 

The idea about the posibility to disable the tray and the in tray playback is for keeping the systrays (not matters if is a Linux or Windows tray) as clean as possible, this option should appear only at the advanced settings in the start up and window section

 

I think Spotify is really AWESOME so it should be updated with the most recent UI design guidelines:-)

 

Finaly let me show you why Spotify does not needs tray icon and the cause to ask you for an option  to disabling it by toggling a switch

yes it is, I think Spotify should let the users decide and more now because we have sound indicators on many desktops like Windows Zorin Pantheon Unity XFCE (the Xubuntu's one) MATE KDE GNOME and even Cinnamon so I find unusable the tray, also on the Linux desktops with sound indicators could be added an option to keep Spotify playing in background but with not tray icon 🙂
