[Desktop] Add Gesture Support for Mac App

Please add gesture support for the Mac app, right now you can't use Magic Mouse or Trackpad to swipe right to go back.

 

Thanks.

Hey folks, 

 

Thanks for putting your votes to this idea. We just wanted to give you a heads up that side scrolling should now work with your trackpads on Mac and using a Magic Mouse.

 

Thanks again and be sure to add your votes to other ideas!

Marked as new idea.

I'm just coming back to Spotify after being away for a couple years, and I cannot believe that this *still* has not been implemented. It's almost enough to make me reconsider switching back from Apple Music. This really is basic functionality on a Mac.

Was very excited when I got the email notification that this was finally implemented. Unfortunately it appears that swipes left and right for forward and back navigation still aren’t working on my  15” Touchbar MacBook Pro (2017). Will this functionality be added?

Hey @teladog01,

 

Thanks for getting in touch.

 

Just to confirm, are you using a trackpad or a Magic Mouse?

 

The functionality is different depending on which one you are using: if you are using the trackpack, you need to swipe using two fingers; with the Magic Mouse, it's just one finger.

 

Also, where within the app are you trying to swipe exactly?

 

Keep us posted 🙂

Builtin trackpad on my MacBook Pro. And yes I am using two finger swipes. I
am trying/wanting to use navigation swipes, similar to forward and back
navigation swipes in Safari or Firefox or any browser.

For example, from the home page in Spotify, click on a playlist. Then swipe
back to go back to the home page. This type of navigation swipe still
doesn't work.

Thanks for looking into this!

Just to confirm what @teladog01 is seeing, the 2-finger swiping left and right also does nothing for me in the latest version of the spotify client for Macos.

Spotify Team,

 

Gestures still do not work in the Mac app. Please provide an update. This is very frustrating...

Hi Team Spotify!

 

It's great to see this topic being processed, but for me this unfortunately doesn't work.

 

Using:

Spotify version 1.1.10.540.gfcf0430f

OSX ver. 10.11.6

Magic Mouse ver. 1 (A1296)

 

As a sidenote: When using a Logitech mouse with dedicated forward/back buttons, it simply translates the function to previous and next track. It would be great to adress this as well, to provide a unified experience like on windows machines.

scrolling up and down is ok, though applemouse side-slide still not working! It is annoying to go top-left for the small arrow to go back one page, you know.
