[Desktop] Mini player

Hi!

While I was searching for an option for a mini player on windows 10, i found a solution. Since every topic I could find about this topic was locked for replying, so I figured I'd make a new one. The solution I found is as follows:

 

  1. make sure you have chrome browser.
  2. Type windows key + R (run) and type 
    chrome --app="https://play.spotify.com"
    This will open the web player but like an app.
  3. Left at the bottom next to the song banner is this button:    Capture3.PNG   click this button.
  4. you get a floating mini player at the bottom right of your screen with the song banner, and when you hover over it with your mouse you can pause/play/previous/next.

 

Good luck and have a great day!

This is how I am using it now, it's much easier than batch file or win+R.

I've used both the original batch idea and the app version, and the app version is exactly what I was looking for. The batch file idea is serviceable, but requires some recollection. Now, I can just click a shortcut.

Thanks so much for this! I created a shortcut on my desktop and gave it a distinctive icon because it wouldn't pin to the taskbar. I won't listen to Spotify on my Windows PC without it. (If only the miniplayer window would just show the song name on top of the album cover...)

It works beautifully on my Windows 10 PC at work; any ideas/suggestions for getting something like this to run on a Mac?
