Hi, I'm Oscar, from the Netherlands. And I'd like to introduce a new feature on Spotify for Android, which is actually not that new.
What do we need?
Many headphones/headsets have in-line buttons on them. On many phones and apps, these buttons can be used as a music-remote. Most headphones have 1 button, with multiple functions:
This feature is already available on Spotify for Windows Phone and iPhone. Other music-apps on Android such as Deezer, Youtube and Android's default music player also support the feature.
What is the problem?
Spotify on Android does not support this (pretty basic, but handy) feature yet. :'(
How could it be solved?
If Deezer can do it, you can do it too. :) There must be some sort of code/API in Android for this feature, which I think only takes a few minutes to insert into the Spotify codex.
It would be very nice if Spotify could add the feature to their Android app.
What do you guys think about this feature? And, most importantly, do you want it too?
Edit: This idea has been reposted here.

Many Headphones already offer the functionality to work with Spotify when clicking their Buttons.
