Spotify is the ultimate source of all kinds of new and old music that are available in the world. This application is available on the smartphone. Also, a user can access it on the desktop app. A majority of people work on their desktops and laptops while listening to music on it. While busy at work, it can be distracting to constantly switch to the Spotify app to change a track, mute a song, create a playlist of songs that you just heard. So, here knowing the Spotify keyboard shortcuts will come in handy for you.
Right from your keyboard, you can execute a lot of functions on Spotify. As usual, the keyboard commands are available for both Windows as well as macOS users. macOS has a few more shortcuts under its sleeve if we compare it with the Windows OS. The commands are pretty much similar except for where Windows OS uses Control key macOS utilizes the Cmd or Command key.
