Still seems to be there for me when I right click the icon in the system tray.

In Windows 8? Am I taking crazy pills?!

 

Edit: I must've been because I just looked again and found it. Wow. 

Thanks!

Using version 1.0.1.988.g8f17a348, was just updated.

 

Minimise to tray is now disabled for me. Strangely, "minimised" is still available as a startup mode in preferences.

 

What's happening? Was it taken out or is my install broken?

Minimize to try has been removed from 1.0.1

 

1.0.1 will be getting more updates that bring back more of the functionality that the old version had. There will also be improvements.

So it might come back later, or it might not. I don't know.

Thanks for the info, @MattSuda.

 

As for @Spotify, I'm not so thankful. Sux when mine is the workflow that breaks. Now a habit I adopted to save taskbar space is killing my music every time. Very nice.

You guys need to bring that feature back, it was very convenient, now everytime I press the x, thinking it'll go to my tray bar, Spotify closes.

It's a real shame it's been removed, I turned the software upside down and couldn't find the option. I use Windows 7 Pro and having Spotify among the programs I Alt+Tab is really, REALLY, unnecessary.

 

Hope you guys fix it (or add it back) soon.

I also find it sad this option "reduce to traybar on closing" has been removed..

Plus, overing spotify on the taskbar doesn't  give us the currently playing music's name/artist..

 

I can only hope hardly for this option to come back !
