Hi @Xenia 

 

Any idea on timescales yet? 🙂 It's great feature to have when you're working from home and need control of your music over your remote desktop session 🙂  (also I really hope they add this to the new desktop app) 🙂

Hi! Sorry it's taken me so long to reply.

 

The chromebook does not need updating, I went to the page to check 😕 (I won't have it soon anyway, we have to give them back to the school at the end of the year).

I would like to add this is not just a Chrome browser issue, I've tried in MS Edge and have the same problem.

Any news?  Still not working and surely can't take the Dev in charge long to correct one button on this mini player?

I am also having the same issue. I'm using Brave browser on a Mac OSX 10.12 (Sierra). The skip and previous song buttons work, along with being able to play the music, but not pause.

Weirdly it now lets me pause it, but won't let me then play from there??  

 

C'mon guys!

Anybody checking this.  As per my previous post - it now lets you pause but won't let you play (resume)?

Right, I can conform this: Can pause by clicking the pause-icon – which changes to Play-icon – but clicking that does not play😣

Same issue on Chrome for Win10, am able to pause music via the picture-in-picture player but am unable to resume playback after that. Play button is essentially unresponsive and I have to reopen the Spotify browser tab to resume playback from there.
