Now Playing Spotify on WLM [Open Source]

Hey guys!


This app basically takes the music you’re listening to on spotify and sends it to Windows Live Messenger.
I know there are other apps that already do the same but they are having issues on newer systems and don’t always work well.

I tested on windows 11, 10 and 7.
I tried to run tests on XP too, but the system doesn’t perform well in a virtual machine, but I coded using a version of the .NET Framework that XP supports, so I believe it works.

  • Improved Spotify window search.
  • Added a settings page.
