Today we wanted to share a little feature that we developed a while ago for our desktop users, but that very few know about: Player Shortcuts.

We humans love to be productive, so when new hardware or a piece of software solve a problem for us, we feel reaaaally good. Many times something is beautiful or awesome, but other times it's more about speed and efficiency: something that could have taken days to do, is now done in just hours; something that could have taken hours now takes minutes; and something that used to take seconds, now only takes milliseconds. And the last one is the case we want to share.

As you might know, many of the Radio Stations listed in our directory display their Now Playing information. So now, with these Player Shortcuts, instead of using your mouse, we've enabled:

  • The ← → arrows of your keyboard to browse that info.
  • The spacebar plays (or stops) the audio.

Check it out!

We're also now considering the ↑ ↓ arrows for increasing and decreasing the volume. Would that be useful? Please let us know!

Bear in mind this feature may not work in every browser, but we can assure it does work in Chrome, Firefox and IE version 8 and above.

Stay tuned!
