Put play/pause/skip controls on iOS lock screen

I get spoiled being able to skip songs on my phone when I use ARC. Is it technically feasible to get the playback controls on regular Roon as well? I understand that it’s not necessarily playing a song on my phone so maybe iOS doesn’t work like this, but in the immortal words of Slater from Dazed And Confused… “it would be cooler if it did.”

It does work like that, for me anyway:

Weird! Well, that is fantastic. I’ll have to see what the deal is with my settings. There’s about a hundred settings in iOS so I’ll start poking around. Thank you Red_R!

OK, I found where that setting is. I’ll post a screenshot here so others might have an easier time with it. It was in Roon Remote’s settings and it’s a switch you need to turn on marked beta. I probably chickened out when I first saw it. My mistake. It works now and is great!

Ah ok makes sense. I don’t recall turning it on, but probably did at some point. Nevertheless, beta it maybe, I’ve used the Lock Screen controls as long as I can remember and never had an issue. Good luck :+1:
