[Mac] Touchbar should show Song Title

Status: Case Closed

Happy that Spotify has implemented Touchbar integration with the new line of Macbook Pros, but I'm a little shocked that nowhere on the Touchbar is the current song name shown.

 

Using the feature from inside other apps brings up the pause/play/next/back functions with a very large scroll bar to scrobble through the song. I feel that fitting the song name + artist would be totally doable in this space. This feature would be especially useful within Radio or playlists such as charts/Discover Weekly.

 

Something to consider - would be greatly appreciated!

Hey,
Thanks for adding your votes to this idea.
This idea has been 'not right now' for around 2 years. We're marking this as 'closed' as we don't currently have any plans to implement this. If anything changes, rest assured we'll check back in. Thanks!

If my information is right on this they won't implement this feature as it doesn't align with Apples Guidelines =(

First post user sgript says SP won't implement this, second is the Touch bar Guidelines (quote:"Use the Touch Bar as an extension of the keyboard and trackpad, not as a display").

i wish spotify would just impliment this feature and if it's true that apple doesn't let developers do that then **bleep** IS THE POINT OF THE TOUCHBAR IF IT'S GOING TO BE A VIRTUAL FN/TOP ROW FUNCTIONS VIRTUAL REPLACEMENT... Might as well let the devs be creative and have important features like for example saving songs from the touchbar instead of having to open the app. Yeah it only takes a bit but it's convinience at the end of the day and that's what i tought the touchbar could lead too
