[Desktop][Other] Let me configure media keys in spotify settings to control volume/play pause/etc

A very important setting is missing from spotify where I can configure my keyboard's multimedia keys to only work with Spotify (Play/Pause/Stop/Volume/Next/Previous). As of now I use spotify in the background and play games. Volume slider in keyboard controls Windows global volume thus making it extremely annoying to adjust the music volume to be lower than the game volume. I can't fix this issue until Spotify allows me to bind keys.

 

Allow as to add custom keys to Spotify so I can control Spotify and Spotify only using keyboard keys.

I cannot configure those multimedia keys to my liking?? How is this a fix? Install a third-party plugin? This is why it is a suggestion. It is not possible.
