[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.

There is a new update for rhiimoot if you're interested.

I added an option to remove the annoying "Your verison of Windows is out of date" warning some of you may encounter.

You can see the changelog and download it here: https://www.locusmare.com/download.html

 

Please let me know if you encounter any bugs, thanks.

Yes please I would love to have this! I'm also confused that it's not already implemented when it's been requested over and over again for such a long time.

Really need this!  A pop out that remains / floats over other apps like the pop out does for the web player.  C'mon Spotify you wanna be the best right?

robigouk

Ok - what's this icon when I'm in full screen mode?  I think it's new and doesn't do anything?

I agree fully. If the player (play/pauze,prev/next) would have these buttons on the top of the Spotify window I would be able to move the whole screen to the bottom of my mac, but no.. I have to open this maximum huge Spotify screen all the time if I want to forward or replay or pauze... No got this MiniPlay app, but I wonder how other users work with the Spotify desktop app... It's such a huge carnival of bad interface elements... crazy, but yeah... What do I know..

Just received a popup in the browser version of Spotify which said that the miniplayer is now available. Finally! It's located in the bottom right corner.
