Description

Note: if you use Spotify, check out "Looking Glass for Spotify" instead

New - Last.fm support: connect via the "More..." menu and your tracks will be automatically scrobbled when playback reaches half time

With Looking Glass you can control playback from the Music app and save the current track to your library. You can also search for tracks, albums, artists, playlists and recommendations and start playing them right away.

The app can be reached from the menu bar or with the mini player and keyboard shortcuts, which you can customize from the Preferences window. The mini player window provides additional shortcuts:
- "s" or space bar: toggle playback
- "a" or left arrow: jump to previous track
- "d" or right arrow: jump to next track
- "l": love the current track and add to Library (if the the option is enabled from Preferences and you're running macOS 12)
- "r": reveal the current track in Music window

When you open the menu, you can immediately start typing to search in your library; press ⇥ (Tab) to search in catalog and show recommendations.
The search results can also be played next with ⌥ (Option) + Click/⏎ or opened in Music with ⌃ (Control) + Click/⏎.

Notes:
- if you use a non-latin language and have issues with search, try enabling "Activate search field" in "Preferences" → "Advanced"
- if the app does not appear in the menu bar and you are using menu bar hiding apps, please quit them and restart

Awesome App

Great way for me to see what artist is playing at a glance. Customizable to list Song Title or Artist first. My use case for this is with all the music I listen to it's hard to remember which artist I like when I hear their song come on. Clean minimal and highly recommended.

Developer Response ,

I'm glad you like the app. Thanks a lot!

Simple and Effective

It does exactly what I need it to do. Nothing more and nothing less. Plays nicely with Bartender and has the added advantage of running on Big Sur. I'm happy!

Thank you!

Great little app

This is the perfect menu bar companion for Apple Music - lightweight, easy to use, uncluttered, offers global hotkeys. Thanks!

Developer Response ,

Thanks for the feedback! I've added an option for showing Music volume controls in version 1.0.8, which should be available soon. I'll work on the Mini Player next.
