Show the currently playing song in the Spotify macOS/Windows clients.


Be aware this can make the prompt a tad bit slower as it needs to get a response from the Spotify player.

On macOS, all states are supported (playing/paused/stopped). On Windows/WSL, only the playing state is supported (no information when paused/stopped).
