A lot of users of the Elgato Stream Deck use a feature from user BarRaider to manipulate functions on the Spotify app such as pause, skip, repeat, like, and shuffle songs. This is an easy to use tool to allow users to access Spotify functions easily without having to manually interact with the desktop application; however, Spotify currently throttles the functions making it burdensome to use. Spotify should work with Elgato/BarRaider (creator of the Spotify function on the Deck) to allow access to this device and not throttle the functions.
