Music Controls on Hovering on Tab

  • Save

Here's a concept. Music controls on hovering over an out-of-focus tab that's playing music.

Pain Points:
It's annoying as hell to pause music by visiting the tabs and switching back-and-forth.

In addition, since most music streaming services have their own music player interfaces, it's not exactly muscle memory to control music. (Example, I listen to music on one of Spotify, Amazon Music, YouTube Music, Youtube etc). Some have music controls and player on the top, some at the bottom.

Challenges:
I am not sure if chrome (or other browsers) allow programmable control over the tab view, if yes, this would be awesome.

Tools:
Interaction done in InVision Studio. Tried first in Adobe XD but it doesn't have hover trigger.
