[Android][Other] widget

Hello, Spotify. I need semi transparent widget (stop, play, like, next, explicit) on top of all the windows.

 

To like, pause, next track, etc., you need to open the top screen curtain, and this distracts you from the road for a long time. It seems to me that it would be much more convenient if a semi-transparent spotify widget could be launched on top of the navigator just with buttons.

Hey @6wonder,

 

Thanks for confirming that for us!

 

We've gone ahead and marked this as a new idea. Spotify Staff will look into this idea once it reaches the necessary amount of votes.

 

In the meantime we'd recommend taking a look at our integration with Waze that might be useful in such situations.

 

More info on how your feedback reaches Spotify via the Idea Exchange can be found here.

 

Cheers!

Hey there @6wonder,

 

Thanks for sharing your idea with us! 

 

To make sure we're on the same page, can you give us a bit more info by comparing exactly how it looks now over some of the windows you've mentioned? You can make a screenshot to add to your description.

 

The more details, the better.

 

Thanks in advance 🙂 Keep us posted!

Здравствуйте!

Когда я еду на машине, включаю на телефоне навигатор и spotify. Чтобы поставить лайк, включить паузу, следующий трек и т.д., нужно открывать верхнюю шторку экрана, а это долго и сильно отвлекает от дороги. Как мне кажется, намного удобнее, если бы поверх навигатора можно было бы запустить полупрозрачный виджет spotify просто с кнопками (без обложек и т.д.). А если мне нужно отключить треки с пометкой explicit (я часто езжу с ребёнком), то это вообще сложно - через настройки. Добавьте и такую кнопку на виджет..

Спасибо. Больше ничего писать не буду. Время - деньги )))
