    This is so infuriating, and I'm hoping theres a way (via plist files or whatever) to fix it...

    Spotify force-adds an icon to the 'collapsed' view of the clamshell view of the touch bar (the one you can customize).

    This wouldn't be bad if their custom icon SHOWED UP in the 'customize' screen but when you go there, it disappears so you can't customize it (aka get rid of it).

    Worst of all, their stupid icon makes all the icons I actually want about 50% as smaller to make room for their fat-ass icon cramming itself in there.

    How do I get rid of this trash, it's literally useless.

    It pisses me off that apps even get to interface with the touchbar... IN the section thats supposed to be customizable, and it prevents the user from actually ****ing customizing it.

    They are offering it without the touch bar?

    Delete Spotify. Try reinstalling it. If that doesn't fix it then your only option is to report it to Spotify and just delete the app and use the web version of Spotify.

    Not on mine.

    I have the TB set to:

    Show App controls only

    Show full control strip when pressing fn

    This is the best config and uses less power when not in use

    Spotify added it in their latest update. No way to change it. The same icon shows up for when you're playing youtube or iTunes and switch apps.

    https://9to5mac.com/2016/12/23/spot...on-adds-support-for-apple-airpods-auto-pause/

    "The company has also integrated Spotify into the Touch Bar’s Now Playing view. When a Spotify playlist is running, the Control Strip will show a persistent ‘now playing’ icon. Simply tap on that to reveal a scrubber for the current song as well as play, pause and skip buttons."
