[All Platforms] Auto Pause/Resume

Auto Pause/Resume would be a

toggle function embedded within the Settings page.

This feature would make your music pause if there is audio coming from any other application.

Such as, when you start watching a YouTube video, Spotify will automatically detect it, and pause your music. Once the audio from the YouTube is no longer active, then your music will automatically resume. No more flickering back and forth between Spotify and browser, just to pause/play your music. You could, of course, edit which websites/apps trigger the pause/resume feature. Such as games.

Gaming and Listen to music is like Peanut-butter & Jelly! :D

Hallo, ich besitze einen Sat Reciver VU+ solo 4K. Auf diesem läuft die Software OpenATV. Das besondere an der Software ist das man Erweiterungen Installieren kann. Jedoch eine Erweiterung Spotify gibt es bislang leider nicht. Ich würde begrüßen wenn es diese Erweiterung gäbe, da dise Software OpenSurce ist wäre das kein Problem.

Yeah! I know that there are Hotkey controls for Spotify at the following Google Extension Page!

The only problem I have with it is...

You can ONLY use Google Chrome for the hotkeys/controls to work.

Meaning... You can't control your music whilst playing a game, or using a different app.

If they made GLOBAL hotkeys for the Windows Spotify app, then you could control your music
