[Mac] Touchbar should show Song Title

Status: Case Closed

Happy that Spotify has implemented Touchbar integration with the new line of Macbook Pros, but I'm a little shocked that nowhere on the Touchbar is the current song name shown.

 

Using the feature from inside other apps brings up the pause/play/next/back functions with a very large scroll bar to scrobble through the song. I feel that fitting the song name + artist would be totally doable in this space. This feature would be especially useful within Radio or playlists such as charts/Discover Weekly.

 

Something to consider - would be greatly appreciated!

The trim bar is so big you could shrink it with no negative effect for song title or you could make the trim bar transparent with the song name centered in the trim bar. If you beat apple to this feature it could gain some major publicity and bring some apple music users over. Can't be that hard to implement or make as an option in the settings

I'm currently using BetterTouchTool with the `Currently Playing` widget, is does everything that Spotify doesn't. Title, artist, even album art...

You guys should really revisit this. It should honestly take a coder like a day to do, and it would be immensely more useful than the current setup.

they can't do it because a touchbar icon needs to be a button so what  if they made it open spotify when tapped?

someone already suggested perfect solution -->
it should be "Add to favourites" heart button, just instead normal Heart shape it should display Song Name/Album.
