Tested in Ubuntu 19.04

Since some time Spotify does not support app indicator icons anymore. Luckily there is the kdocker application which allows to dock any application to the app indicator area.Install kdocker

  1. Install kdocker
    sudo apt install kdocker

  2. Edit contents of spotify launcher file
    /usr/share/applications/spotify.desktop

  3. Execute spotify through kdocker instead of spotify directly
    I commented out the old Exec string and added the kdocker one
    #Exec=spotify %U
    Exec=kdocker -q -o -l -i /usr/share/icons/Paper/512x512/apps/spotify.png spotify %U
