I would like to see the ability to control roon from the android notification window - pause play track skip - like I can do with virtually every other android music app. If this is already available please let me know how to enable it.
It is indeed already available – but only if your android device is the actual playback zone.
Roon 1.7 Is Live! Android Audio
When playing on an Android device, Roon now plays in the background with metadata and transport controls available in the Android “notification” area.
I would like to see this for the actively selected zone on the Android device. The only time the Android device is what I’m playing on is if I’m using headphones.
There are a couple of other threads on this request:
It’s driving me mad having to unlock my phone, open the Roon app and await for it to slowly reconnect to the core just in order to pause or restart the music.
Every other music app on android has notification bar controls. Please add it!
I wonder if a feature could be added whereby I don’t have to start Roon every time I want to skip to the next track.
At the moment this takes some time on my Nexus 9 and is quite annoying. (Roon startup screen, finding core, and then skipping)
Putting a simplified player (play/pause, fwd, back) in the systems tray & lockscreen of Android devices (like Tidal) would make life a bit easier.
Thanks in advance and keep up the good work!
Looks like when you are using a chromecast audio as endpoint you do see a notification on android phone that lets you play and pause FYI
