[Mobile] Option to hide the Now Playing bar

When you start a song in the Spotify app, it opens a bar at the bottom of the app.
It shows you the songtitle and artist and has three buttons (link to another device, Like and play/pause)

This hovers over the other pages (Home, Search and Library) and stays always on top.
Somehow you can't hide it again. Even when the song has stopped or is paused
This is very annoying, I think.

So I would like to have an option to close the bar.

How come 50 votes is not enough to make this OPTIONAL? I think this quite a big sample of people who where annoyed enough to actually look online for a solution to this issue, register on your forums and vote for it. I'm pretty sure 5 times more people simply gave up the all that hassle.

 

Whoever dislikes this can CHOOSE not to enable this option. This bar wasn't there before and somehow you didn't need any votes to introduce this bar that's constantly showing over any content. It's super annoying, just like you assuming that anything you introduce will automatically be loved by everyone. If you introduce anything new, make it OPTIONAL.
