[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!

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!

Hey folks, thanks for bringing your feedback to the Idea Exchange. We don't have plans to show Song Titles in the Touch Bar so we're going to mark this as 'Not Right Now'. If you have any other feedback around the Touch Bar please do let us know. Thanks!

You definitely should consider doing that to improve the Spotify experience. To keep it modern and up to date.

Please add this, it's really useful. Or even better, show the lyrics in the touch bar! That would be awesome!


need this


I agree this would be way more useful than place in the song. 


This feature should seriously be considered!


This should be considered, really. I don't know who would actually prefer such a long progress bar instead of knowing what they're listening to.


Please add this! This would be so so much better than a scrubber that's exacty the same for every song.


(Also please add the ability to resume a playlist from where you stopped).


This needs to be done.


Please do this, I will implement it for free.
