The Play Queue is a list of tracks that will be played before any other music. It can be used for out-of-order playback of tracks without interrupting the flow of the music. Queued tracks can be seen in white in the Play Queue view. The grey tracks are from the view that was playing before tracks were added to the Queue and illustrate future playback once the Play Queue runs out. Queue tracks by selecting “Queue” in a track’s context menu or by dragging tracks to the Play Queue.

Growl

Growl is a notification system for Mac OS X, that applications can use when they want to tell you something — in the case of Spotify, that a new song started playing. Growl is highly customizable — you decide what notifications you want, how they look, how long they stay on your screen, and so on.
