[Desktop] Global HotKeys for Pause/Play, Skip, etc.

It would be nice to have an Global Hotkey so you can pause/play your music while browsing and not switching between screens. Or when you are gaming and you want another song but you don't want to alt tab and stay idle, a (customizable?)  Global Hotkey(i.g. ctrl+shift+right) would be such an great improvement in the usefulness of Spotify.

Usually, when I use Spotify on my computer, I'm using it for work or to play video games, both of which are activities that flow better if uninterrupted. It's not a huge hassle to tab out, but it would be much more convenient if there was an option in settings to bind a key to skip songs. I'd imagine it wouldn't be too hard to implement, and it makes any activity on the computer much more fluid. I hope we can see this soon, as it would be a nice change.
