Update 17/2/14 - Almost 2 years ago I submitted this idea, and in the last few weeks, the number of Kudos email notifcations I receive daily is getting even more frequent. Thanks to everyone who keep's voting it up, I didn't think it would get 10 votes let alone over 1,000! Clearly it's popular but not as straight forward to develop hence the 'Not Right Now' status from Spotify, but keep the voting! The most rated ideas are getting developed and it's just a matter of time before this one does too.
I'd like to see a miniplayer and mini controls for Spotify that could sit in the taskbar (Windows and Mac!)
The idea came about, after I kept maximising and minimising Spotify just to see my play queue and sometimes jump down a few . This is my solution making it a less obtrusive way of seeing what's coming up and track jumping.
While we're marking this as 'Not Right Now', that is because we don't have plans to implement the exact idea suggested above. Windows 10 users can use a smaller mini player with play controls (but no play queue). Users with OSX computers can right click on the Spotify icon to get play controls as well. If we have any further updates on this we will let you all know right here. Thanks!
