[iOS][iPadOS][macOS] Support for interactive playback widget

Hi, in the new iOS 17/iPad OS/Sonoma update Apple is adding support for interactive widgets. I would love if you could experiment with adding this feature to Spotify as it isn’t currently supported. 

The widget could come in multiple sizes, ranging from a simple pause button to a full album cover, upcoming music and the ability to scroll in a song or podcast for the big screens.

 

EDIT: Thanks for the support, remember to like the idea, so we can get this feature implemented 😁!

Whilst you’re at it I feel like this is a good time to finally revisit adding iOS Shortcuts integration. It’s long overdue!

This feature is definitely needed.

This will be a great idea! Especially when you turn on stand by mode on iphone!

Why aren’t Spotify keeping an eye on the apple events and features upcoming? We’ve known interactive widgets were coming months before iOS 17 was released, so why wasn’t this feature ready to go as soon as iOS 17 launched? Shouldn’t take your community to bring OS updates to the devs attention!
