  • (2020-11-30) Milán Nagy: Absolutely love this plugin, but I've experienced some problem with the play/pause shortkey (not working at all). Could you check it out what could be the case? (Chrome version: Version 87.0.4280.66 (Official Build) (64-bit))

  • (2019-04-20) Tim Thornhill: Definitely the best option for all of the extensions of this type out there. Add lyric support and it would be unstoppable.
  • (2019-04-04) Truman H.: I saw some comments saying that Chrome doesn't support media keys, however I just tried Play/Next Track/Previous Track and they all work!!!
  • (2019-03-23) Lucas Sousa: Excellent!!

  • (2018-11-22) Mihai X: Love this extension. Just one question - is it possible to turn off the notification SOUND? I have other extensions which show notifications and they allow me to turn on/off notification sound and even customize it. Thanks!
  • (2018-11-15) Evariste Chaintreau: Après pas mal d'essaie chez la concurrence, seul application qui marche sur Opéra. Fonctionne très bien, fait ce qu'on lui demande et plus le tout de manière ergonomique et efficace. Oui il faut avoir un onglet play.spotify actif mais est ce vraiment un défaut.
  • (2018-10-24) Mike B: niceeeeee
  • (2018-08-14) Lionel Hubmann: Works perfect!
  • (2018-05-19) Teodor Holmström: Awesome! Works perfektly. Its realy helpful when you search websites and need to skip a song fast. It saves time.
  • (2018-05-19) SLe Pine: Tried a number of extensions for next song and this is the only one that finally worked. I love the pop-out option as well.
  • (2018-04-19) Tess Devlin: Really great! I love pretty much everything about it, but I wish there were a way to turn off the notifications. They can be great if you want something like that, but for me personally they break up the music and are distracting when I'm trying to do something else.
  • (2018-04-17) Luděk Csiba: It looks that it do everything what it promise. Well done. I didnt know I needed it until I saw this Addon... :) Big plus for me is ability to control the web player without needing leave a current page I read/work on..... The big Thank You.

  • (2021-04-18, v:1.4.0) Neera S: Spotty Web Remote Control
    Hi there, This programme doesn't seem to be working for me, after having tried multiple times on several days. I've seen a few others state the same problems - that the extension just tells us to reload the page or open Spotify web player in a new tab. Could we please have you solve the problem for us, as this extension seems to be too good to miss out on! Thanks
  • (2020-12-30, v:1.4.0) Tom Keane: doesnt work anymore
    might be a problem with me but the extension has stopped working
  • (2020-12-02, v:1.4.0) Fran Heredia: Could it be that it's no working?
    A few days ago the extension stopped working, it seems that it can't comunicate with the web app of Spotify.
  • (2020-06-17, v:1.4.0) FR: Always on top
    Hi!, Thanks a lot for your work. I'd like to suggest an "always on top" feature for the external use of the controller. I think a sort of "picture in picture" capability would be very useful while working with other programs. Cheers.
  • (2020-05-14, v:1.4.0) Juraj M.: When two Spotify tabs are opened, clicking Next (or using short-key) will run 2x next
    I often open new Spotify tab to checkout the artist album. Using your extension then executes all commands twice. So "Next" will skip next song and play the one after it.
  • (2020-05-08, v:1.4.0) Nathan Britton: Pop Out Player
    The Pop-Out player isn't functioning currently. When a song is playing or not the player isn't able to detect the current music, saved or recent either etc https://i.imgur.com/nUSNZTZ.png The extension is fantastic, works flawlessly for global hotkeys! Really wish the popout player was functioning. I've tried two different computers, browsers and networks.
  • (2020-02-29, v:1.4.0) David Williams: Hello! Thank you so much for making this, it's the only one that works for me.
    My request is, would please include JQBX ( https://www.jqbx.fm/ ) in your next update, (or could I fork it, and add it myself?) It's really just the 'SKIP' button that I need to be able to hit while I'm working on something else. Any help you could offer would be truly appreciated. I have a little coding experience, so if you needed any help coding or testing I would be happy to help in any way I could. Thank you so much. David [email protected]
  • (2019-11-22, v:1.4.0) Okiki Ojo: Auto-hidding Notifictions
    The notifications from the extention pile up in my notification tray, it would be nice if the notification went away after sometime.
  • (2019-07-23, v:1.3.9) Eric E: Add option to change function of icon
    Hi there. Thanks for the extension. I use it every day! It would be super handy if you could change the command that's executed when you click the icon. For instance, basically every time I click it, I'm trying to skip to the next track. If I could choose to do that in one click, that would be great. Basically, I'd hit the icon once and it would skip track and that's it. You could right-click to get the existing menu. Or something similar. Anyway, thanks again!
  • (2019-05-20, v:1.3.9) Johann: Suggestion
    plz add like this device button
  • (2019-05-17, v:1.3.9) Perchful: API Usage
    Hi! Im currently looking into making something using the spottily that I can't go too much into detail about, but Im wondering if you used the API for this service, or if this was purely created using JS and other programming languages. Thanks so much.
  • (2019-03-29, v:1.3.9) Vilius Simas: Next shortcut
    Hi, I still trying to use shortcut for the Next song but it is still not working... Others shortcuts works well. I cannot find a way to change global shortcuts. But maybe You can fix "ctrl_shift+9" shortcut. Thank You.
  • (2019-03-27, v:1.3.9) FastForward/Rewind
    Allow you to fast forward through the song.
  • (2019-03-09, v:1.3.9) Patrick Carmichael: Volume control?
    Love this extension! I would love it even more if there was the ability to control volume, which would be especially useful when playing remotely on a Spotify Connect device.
  • (2019-02-15, v:1.3.9) suggestion
    I love this extension! The only thing it's missing is a progress bar that lets you skip to any point in the song that you want to. Please add this!
  • (2019-02-15, v:1.3.9) Arun Gopi: Adding song to a playlist
    I can't find a way to add the currently playing song to a playlist directly from the remote, if such a feature doesn't exist, it would be nice to have it in a future update. Currently Spotify remote tabs are inconsistent. When i click the 'saved' tab, the it shows me the saved playlists but I cant return to my currently playing playlist (no songs to show). 'Recent' tab doesn't work as of now (no recent lists to show). There are times when the 'saved' tab is stuck on loading but those times I can still access my 'songs' tab.
  • (2019-01-21, v:1.3.9) Recent tab still not working (after latest update)
    Thanks for the the update. Recent tab is still not working. It still says No Recent Lists to Show.
