  • (2016-06-13) rijstmetbhaat: Really like it, awesome that the shortcuts work from other tabs. What would be awesome is to customize the hotkeys. :) **edit: SORRY! I didn't read your description. We're able to customize the shortcuts. :$ i tried messing with your code, but this also works. 5stars.**
  • (2016-03-07) Ashley Lee: This is awesome! Although the Spotify web app itself stops playing every so often, this is a great add-on for anyone using it. EDIT: When I put the Chrome hotkeys to "global", it doesn't work sometimes. I'll try using the other mode and see how that works. EDIT: I've tried it again, but it doesn't work at all...:(
  • (2016-01-15) middy: it doesn't even show up
  • (2015-10-05) Last Of The Memehicans: does not work just opens another spotify tab
  • (2015-09-26) Maddy: Works perfect! No Lag b/w the shortcut keys press and web player reaction:) Global setting helps it control from desktop too. Restart chrome once if its not working as intended!
  • (2015-06-12) Robert Morris: Doesn't work.
  • (2015-06-10) Pablo Albanese: Nuuul ne s'affiche même pas sur l'ecran
  • (2015-05-27) Adrian: launches new tab with spotify player rather than pausing...
  • (2015-05-14) BeSawri: shortcuts dont work. launches new tab with spotify player rather than pausing.
  • (2015-03-19) Oliver Schmidt: The extension worked perfectly until yesterday. Spotify has obviously updated the web player. Now instead of start/pause a new Spotify browser tab is opened. I hope this will be fixed soon.
  • (2014-12-30) Thomas Raukamp: Funktioniert tadellos. Scrollen Sie für die Konfiguration die Liste Ihrer Erweiterungen herunter (chrome://extensions/), um hier den Verweis „Tastenkombination“ zu nutzen. In dem anschließenden Dialogfenster können Sie eigene Einstellungen vornehmen.
  • (2014-12-19) Luis Velázquez: No me ha servido, incluso cambiando los atajos.
  • (2014-12-13) Jake Bradley: It's brilliant! You don't have to pay for Spotify Web Player; the free version of the downloaded Spotify has ads, whereas the online one doesn't. This app allows you to skip songs/play/pause/rewind songs for the web player. (NOTE: Go to your extensions, then go to the bottom, it should say "Keyboard Shortcuts", after that select what keys you want to have as the skip/play/pause/previous buttons and ensure it's on global as this will allow you to control the web player on and off Chrome.) I highly recommend!
  • (2014-11-25) Thanh Nguyen: It would be great, if there was also a hotkey to star songs!
  • (2014-11-20) NICHOLAS JHOSHTNER: this is one of the best music apps
  • (2014-10-23) Shane White: Thank you!! This works great!
  • (2014-10-23) David Utterman: Awesome, works without having Chrome active. Also it works with the keyboard media keys! 5 out of 5, nice work.
  • (2014-06-13) David Aman: After restarting Chrome, this worked perfectly. Got my multimedia keyboard programmed. This is exactly what I wanted. Thank you!! *update* I just discovered I can change the hotkeys to work outside of Chrome too, and now I can control Spotify without having to switch to Chrome first. This makes it even perfect-er! Perfectlier? perfectx2.
  • (2014-03-10) Dale Davies: Perfect. NOTE: You can change the shortcut keys to anything you like in chrome://extensions at the the bottom, 'Keyboard Shortcuts'
  • (2014-01-31) Susanna Winter: Does what it says on the tin. Had to hunt for the keyboard settings for a while but once I found it, it was easy to configure -- I now can control the Spotify web player with my media keyboard.
  • (2014-01-10) Andreas Scharf: awesome! does exactly what it says :) but please think of a different set of standard keys, because for example, on the german QWERTZ keyboard layout, it is not possible to select the previous song because < and > are the same key (when you press alt + shift)
