[Android] Android Widget

Having a home screen widget for Android would be really nice. All other media players have one on Android so it'd be great to see that in Spotify too. It'd make things so much easier to just be able control to Spotify from your home screen instead of swiping down for the notification bar or opening the app. It's really simple functionality so please can you add it.

Hey folks, 


Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this idea in the Community.


We’re excited to let you know the Android Widget is back. To get listening, make sure you’re on the latest version of the app and Spotify will show in the widget menu on your device. The widget is now resizable too and some stability issues have been fixed. 




We appreciate your passion for this feature and want to thank you all for your feedback!


Ok but now can we get the widget to look nicer. It's kinda ugly right now. 


One way to loose a subriber. Im out. I have been a loyal 10 bucks subriber. But without the widget i cant listen on my mobile anymore.. pfffft. :-C 

Please Spotify, bring the widget back and ill be a subscriber again.




This feature is too cool






Great idea, what would also be a great idea would be if spotify brought back the playlist radio feature which they removed just recently.
