Keybinding Previous, Pause/play and Skip to any keyboard key

I think an awesome feature is to add in an option that would let the user somehow keybind the previous track, pause/play and Skip buttons to a function key or any available key on the keyboard. I recently got a new keyboard and it doesn't have the dedicated skip, pause and play keys like my old one does. Which I used ALL THE TIME! I often do some gaming and while in full screen its incredibly annoying to minimize and skip song and then go back to my game. I upgraded to a much nicer mechanical keyboard with tons of keys to spare and would like to dedicate three of them for those options.

You didn't specify what OS you were using. But if you're on OS X, you can remap shortcuts associated with any menu item as follows:

 

1) Go to Settings > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Application Shortcuts

2) '+' to add new item

3) Select Application: Spotify. Menu Title should be exactly as shown in Spotify menu (ie, "Next", "Previous", "Shuffle", etc). Enter shortcut.

 

This applies to application shortcuts in general.
