My Question or Issue

I noticed that early this week, Spotify Web Player removed the little 'pop-out' mini-player. (The little box that would pop out and stay on your desktop while you could browse other programs). I really loved this feature as it was extremely easy to play/pause and skip songs without having to go to the Spotify tab each time. Can we please bring this back?? 🙂

Hey there folks,

 

Thanks for your patience while our teams were looking into this!

 

We're happy to share that the mini player should be now visible in the Web Player once more.

 

If you're having troubles, make sure to clear the cache and cookies memory in your browser before giving it another try. And as always, if you need further help, you can give us a shout in the relevant Help board. We'll be happy to lend a hand.

 

Have a lovely day 🙂

Hello kmacky, welcome to the Spotify Community!

 

Since this is an new idea, I'd suggest you to post this as an new idea.

This isn't a issue since Spotify removed this feature.

You can find the submit an idea section here.

Make sure to search if this idea isn't uploaded already!

 

Have a nice day.

Hi kmacky
I came looking for the same answer, I know what feature you are talking about ... It's a shame the answer from "Community Experts".
If you found a way to enable the feature, please let us know here.
Thank you!!!

Hello Carlos_ars,

 

I'm sorry if I answered wrong, remember that I'm still a person who shares their ideas and knowledge about Spotify.

Again, since this is an feature which isn't implemented yet, we can't help you because it's removed recently. 

I hope I informed you enough. 

 

Best wishes.

My problem is with Spotify, I can't believe that if I pay for a service I can't contact customer support.

The feature that Kmacky refers to is this that appears here:
https://community.spotify.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/108338i1073C83989E6B78D/image-size/large?...

It would be great if someone from Spotify explained why it no longer appears.

My Question or Issue

Last month 10-15 days ago i was able to see the cover of the song playing on my desktop..

I would log on the Web player using chrome, start the song and click on a small icon on the interface that initailizated a small gadget "Chrome notification window" that would show the picture of the song and the icons to play, and skip.

That feature allowed me to minimize the Chrome App and still be able to see what was palying and even skip or stop the song.

But out of nowhere the feature dissapeared, i cant find the option anymore

My notification settings are ok.. What happened?

 

Here is an image for reference (Not my screenshot)

Hey @Matiasnk 

Chrome had an update 2 weeks ago where they changed some cross site scripts. Because of this, it could have affected the Web Browser. So once Spotify is able to update the browser you might see it back again.

My Question or Issue

I would like to know what happened to the little button in the lower left corner that showed the mini player on the screen.

 

This is the button I'm talking about:

https://community.spotify.com/t5/image/serverpage/image-id/108338i1073C83989E6B78D/image-size/large?...

 

It was a really useful function and I need it again.
