Ah, now it updated and what you said in your answer is true. I'm glad they finally fixed this.

I do not have premium... Maybe that is what is causing the difference. I suppose it could be a sneaky way of trying to encourage free users to keep it open to help with their P2P network. Still seems a little weird though. It would be interesting to hear from a few other free vs premium users to see if their experience matches ours.

Not for me (I'm running Windows 8.1). The X button still behaves exactly like the minimize button---it neither closes Spotify nor stops the playback. What platform are you on?

Clarified the answer and added information about using the trick on the Mac version of Office.

@SnowCrash I looked around some, and it appears that ctrl-y will also repeat the last action if there's nothing to redo (i.e. you didn't perform an undo immediately before). So, give command-y a try and see if that works on the Mac. I don't have a Mac to try it out on.

+1 Because this is a good way to make Spotify not clutter up your task bar when you click the X button. However, it does not actually close the program as you claim. Rather, Spotify keeps running in the background (as the balloon that pops up in the video says). Even though it's no longer in the task bar, it still has a tray icon and still shows up under the "Processes" tab of your task manager. I'm the type of person that doesn't like having extra cruft running on my computer, so I'd like it if it would fully exit the program--not just hide it.

+1 for the added insight on why they might want us to always have Spotify open. I didn't know that it uses P2P. In my opinion, that's still not a good enough reason to disable something as standard and basic as the X button though. I'd even prefer if the X button closed the GUI and left a background process running in the tray for the P2P stuff. At least then it gives the impression that it closed and gets it out of the way.

@James Yeah, I'm guessing there's no good way to do it other than getting the Spotify developers themselves to change the code. I did submit a complaint to them about it when I posted this question, but who knows if they'll pay any attention to it. Hopefully, there are others complaining about it as well.
