Spotify gets Windows 10’s native taskbar audio controls
Spotify sports over 100 million active users and more than half of them have signed up for the Premium service. In September 2016, Spotify had 40 million paying subscribers worldwide, up from 30 million paying subscribers in March 2016. Third party applications, blogs, websites and other tools support Spotify. For example, there are tools to display lyrics and services to list and notify users about new releases. To make things even better, you can also find new songs that are suggested by Spotify based on your preferred genre.
A new version of Spotify version is now available for Windows Desktops on PCs and tablets. This new update doesn’t have a changelog, but it seems the application now supports Windows’ native media APIs.
Now, you will be able now to control Spotify not only from the taskbar or inside the application, but also from the media control widget that appears when you press the volume keys and in lock screen.
These APIs were initially used by Windows 10 Universal applications and by the Windows 8/8.1 Universal applications. However, it seems that older applications such as Office 365 Suite, Slack or Spotify are now adopting it as well.
Spotify for Windows 10 can now be downloaded from the Windows Store. Are you using Spotify to listen to your favorite songs? Tell us your thoughts about this service!
