Android Default Player

Regular

Android applications seem to support some form of integration with the Android OS to identify as a music player.

 

Going to: Settings > Apps > *Gear Icon* > *Default Section* > Music app:

 

I'm able to select which application on my phone should be the default app for music, and the phone presents me with a list of choices:

  • Google Play Music
  • MX Player Pro
  • ES File Explorer Pro
  • IPTV Pro.

As you can see, Spotify is not on the list. If those apps can make it to the list, so can Spotify. Would be really great to see official integration with Android in this regard, especially because such integration helps a lot when connecting the phone with the car!

 

Screenshot attached.

 

Phone: OnePlus 5

OS: Oxygen OS 4.5.2 / Android 7.1.1

OS Build: ONEPLUS A5000_23_170624

 

Thanks

What you said is good, but does not address this solution. This is only useful when music is started via Google Service (such as the Google Home or Google Assistant). Would be a good idea in my opinion to have direct support at OS level too.
