Possibility to start up Spotify as a tray icon in windows

I think it would be great to have the possibility to make Spotify start up as a tray icon in windows, like any other software does.
Right now there is the possibility to start it up minimized, but each time I start up my PC I have to close it and reduce it as a tray icon because I don't need Spotify right away.
On OSX the minimized toggle behaviour works fine, but not on Windows, as I don't keep in the taskbar but rather in the tray icons, designed in windows for programs running in background, exactly like Spotify.

I hope you consider and appreciate this feedback I took time to write, love your app.

Hi @marcofugaro, welcome to the Spotify Community!

 

Currently it's not possible, but I suggest you support this Idea. It might be implemented in the future!
