Tonido on Android - standard playback controls

Running Tonido 4.1 on my Android 7.0 smartphone. It seems to me that the Tonido app doesn't seem to support the standard Android API for playback controls. Tonido's on-screen controls work just fine, but:

  • if I have a Bluetooth audio device connected, which usually have their own physical play/pause/prev/next controls, those do nothing when Tonido is playing audio. Same BT physical controls work fine in, for example, Google Play Music.
  • the notifications area does show Tonido with the name of the current audio file and a progress bar. However, it should also show basic playback controls, like many other audio player apps do.

I think if the Tonido app added support for the Android playback API, all of these problems would go away.
