Spotify Mac Remote

Spotify Mac Remote is a plugin for Spotify that allows you to use your Mac’s IR remote control to play, pause and change tracks.


The next, previous and play/pause buttons work exactly as you’d expect, the volume buttons control the system volume and holding the menu button quits Spotify – in case you want to use the remote with other apps.

Please note that when there are updates for Spotify you may need to download a new version of the plugin.


You can download an installer here:


To uninstall the plugin just quit Spotify and then open Finder and browse to Macintosh HD > Library > Application Support > SIMBL > Plugins and delete SpotifyRemote.bundle
