If you’re like me, you listen to music on a variety of devices around your home, and love the convenience of controlling this all through your phone. But selecting and changing which devices to play on can be time consuming if you have to go into each app to manage the controls.

With Android 13, we introduced a refreshed media player on your Android phone’s lock screen and notification section that allows you to quickly select which compatible Bluetooth or Chromecast built-in devices to play your content on (currently available with YouTube and YouTube Music). This year, we’re working closely with Spotify to enable their users to easily switch playback between any Spotify Connect device from Android’s media player.

We’re also developing a way for your audio content to move with you throughout your day. Through notifications on your devices, you’ll be able to tap to start listening to a podcast in the car, continue on your phone and headphones and finish on your TV at home. As you move your physical location, you’ll see these media notifications on your phone or other devices asking if you’d like to transfer the audio over to a nearby device. We are working with Spotify and YouTube Music to use these notifications to help users enjoy the content they are streaming, on the most optimal device available to them.
