This will allow expo app to display Now playing Info on lockscreen / control center widget and handle control events.
This will extend the Audio background playback support.
It would be amazing to have a way to interact with the app from the lockscreen and/or notification area without ejecting. It saves me so much time developing and especially releasing on both Apple and Android app stores.
Expo allows many developers to create amazing apps without dealing with Swift or Java and those annoying XML configuration files. I've tried (and failed) developing mobile applications in the past and this is the first time I can actually succeed to make good progress with no migraines and very decent quality. This feature would make Expo even more amazing. So, I also ask you guys to prioritise this feature.
Thanks in advance!
This is a basic requirement for many apps. I'd like to vote for it also.
Please this is a much needed feature :'(
Awesome idea, I think it's a basic feature which should already be present
I want this very much too!
Sorry for noob question: Is it not possible to import and utilize react-native-music-control (and other pure react native components) in your Expo app?
From my usage so far (ejected), react native-music-control seems pretty buggy, so I’d favor an approach where expo-av handles this natively.
If Expo wants to accelerate this by forking rnmc and fixing its bugs, well, I’d welcome that too. 😁
