Feature request: control casting on iOS lock screen

Jason WoodlandJason Woodland Posts: 3Members ✭✭

A couple of years ago people were discussing adding media controls to the iOS lock screen for casting but apple locked down the API to only control media playing on the device itself.

I noticed that the iOS YouTube app can cast to TVs and you can change the volume etc from the lock screen.

Is this feature planned to be implemented?

    Bump!? YouTube and Spotify both does this while casting to Chromecast. Being able to Play/Pause and adjust the volume from the lock screen greatly enhance the remote experience. An implementation would be much appreciated

    So this is still the way it is. I guess they couldn't think of a way to make us have to get up and walk over to the TV to change the channel and volume. Almost as bad, though.

    This would be a great feature. Having to unlock the phone to play/pause is annoying.
