I personally hate irrelevant notifications and the most common one on my MacBook is Spotify with their badge count showing alerting every time a new track is added to one of the 50+ playlists I follow.
There are several requests on Spotify’s own community board and have been talked about since 2012 with 20k views and 130 replies right now.
Googled a fix for this numerous times but never any luck and impossible to use Notifications Center since Spotify refuses to follow
like most other Mac OS X apps. Luckily I did come across a solution this morning that works for now. Unclear if this is a permament solution butter best seems to be best option out there.
How to fix it
spotifynotification.sh from here
. Unzip and save to your desktop.
Open Terminal and navigate to your desktop (
Set the right permissions for the script, which is done by typing
chmod 700 spotifynotification.sh
Run the file by typing
System Settings > Notifications
and you should find Spotify at the bottom of the list.
