[Desktop] Popout player

I have seen this idea posted several times over the years and they are all marked closed. I personally find it really frustrating that people have clearly been asking for this and over and over been denied, especially because it seems like a rather simple feature. Anyway, on the web player on Chromebook, there is an excellent popout player that remains on top of other tabs and windows you open, has the album/song art and has simple controls like pause, play, skip, and rewind that show when you hover over it. You can also move it around your screen so you position it where is easiest for you. It's crazy to me that this feature hasn't been implemented already for the desktop application, or if it has then the fact that it's been removed. It's super annoying to have to stop what I'm in the middle of to open the Spotify window just to see what is playing, or to skip or save a song. Something with just the basics of these features would make a huge difference and make usability so much easier.

**bleep** that's class.  Spotify PLEASE PLEASE bring this for the Spotify Desktop App.

I love listening to music while working at the (home) office.
It would be great to have a floating Spotify miniplayer on the computer desktop that you can keep on top or send to the background.

I agree - it's on the web player but I prefer the desktop app as has more
options (crossfade, off line etc.)

This may have been said previously (it's been 12+ years since we wait for this) but if you are on a Mac there's the Silicio Mini Player that does a pretty god job.

Hi Timbru

Unfortunately, I'm not on a Mac.
But thank you for your reaction.

Come on Spotify. Get it together. Not all of us like to use the website player! How long have people been asking for this? Come on, please.
