This simple flow uses the proximity sensor of your smartphone so that you can control the Spotify playback with a quick hand gesture. This might be useful when you wear gloves, hands are wet etc. and you don't want to use your touch screen to control Spotify. Enjoy and let me know how you like it!

Hand distance max. 3 cm

👋 short hand wave = ⏯️ play / pause
