The desktop app doesn't support the media mouseover buttons like windows media player has. The windows API for adding taskbar mouseover controls is trivially simple. I would really apprecate the ability to mouse over the taskbar icon and see the album cover, current track name, duration, current position and most imporantly, Play/Pause next and previous buttons.
It would GREATLY increase the friendlyness and useablilty of spotify desktop on windows 7/8/10
Here is an example of what I am talking about, what windows media player on windows 7 does.
ignore the album it was something promotional preinstalled to windows media player.
mouse over the taskbar, you get a play/pause.
We need this. For a $10 a month I just need a button!
Solved! Go to Solution.
That's kinda weird, since it should actually show up those buttons.
At least on Win 8 and Win 10 they pop up for me when I hover over the task icon. Win 7 should work too.
Could you post a screenshot of what shows when you hover over the Spotify icon?
Also what OS are you using and which Spotify version are you running?
