One of the most requested features for Windows 10 has been a miniplayer for Groove Music, Windows 10’s music app. While the app itself is responsive—meaning it will reformat itself as you adjust the size of the window—it’s not really a miniplayer, per se: Even when reduced as far as it will go, the window takes up a lot of space.
Of course, any app can be minimized to the taskbar, but then it becomes unusable, right? Not in this case. Hover over the Groove icon in the taskbar, and you’ll see some minimal controls to play, pause, and skip between tracks. It’s certainly nothing compared to the currently defunct Winamp MP3 player, but it’s still a nice little addition to the Anniversary Update.
(Note that this isn’t the only way to control your music; you can also tell Cortana to “skip to the next track.” But if you use the more natural command, “play music,” while a song is already paused, she’ll most likely jump to a random track in your playlist.)
