BarRemote (for Spotify)

By CodexBit Software

Open the Mac App Store to buy and download apps.


BarRemote is a mini player for Spotify that sits in your menu bar. It allows you to quickly see what's currently playing and control playback.

You can search the Spotify library directly in the app to select something to play. You can browse an artist's albums and play and see album details.

Playback controls can be shown or hidden from the menu bar, from the settings screen.

The mini player has support for seeking in the current track, controlling volume, toggling repeat and shuffle on or off.

What's New in Version 3.0

- Album artwork now available again.
- Fixes for search functionality.
- UI improvements.
- Removed remote control functionality. Spotify now natively supports the remote control feature. You can still use BarRemote to control playback on different devices.

Customer Reviews

Tiny, Make Bigger

The icons are so tiny. Make them just *a little* bigger or wider (maybe remove the oval frame?) or stretch the icons just a little more, or create the option for different sizes? The purpose of the Menu Bar icon (the entire app) is to enable convenience, and playing with my mouse to ensure I am clicking in just the right spot due to such tiny icons removes that layer of convenience that I’ve paid for. Other than that, thanks for the concept.

nice app

great app for manage and search without get out from your environment work, nice album artwork presentation. it would be useful if you add the "save to your music" button


all i want is a “save to music” button for Spotify and you are mine forever...
