It seems like 1000's of people are Canadian here and are simply complacent when it comes to just living with what they have... which is usually a nice thing. but 1000's of votes and requests for a smaller player seems like someone at Spotify is actively saying it's not that we can't... its that we shouldn't.
I mean, how long will it take before the design team here will make a smaller desktop player? Currently it is more than 800px x 630px!!!! That's astonishingly HUGE.
By now this app should have Size options
We should be able to shrink it down to JUST the play bar at the bottom (500x70)
with the option to include Artwork, or Volume, next track, etc.
But I digress, I UNDERSTAND advertising for free subscriptions is worth noting.
This size should be (600x170) - Web banner plus mini player
PLEASE NOTE SPOTIFY DEVS: With a Mini player you have the option to have the App ALWAYS IN FRONT. that means the all important ads will be seen more and more often, rather than always hidden.
So for the sake of your listeners, your advertisers, and your investors... PLEASE MAKE A SMALLER / MINI Desktop player for 2020!
If anyone that works at Spotify is old enough to remember WinAMP they will tell you, Skins and mini players were AMAZING. Always seeing what song is playing, having access to skip, heart, add to playlist... always there... you are more likely to see more involvement... which in the end makes Spotify a better aggregator.
