My Question or Issue

 

Hello everyone,

 

would it be possible to add an accessibility setting that allows to change the apps behavior in terms of skipping to the previous track more easily?

 

As of right now you have to press the skip-back button once to skip to the beginning of the track that's currently playing and then, within the first 1 or 2 seconds or so, you have to press the skip back button again to actually get to the previous track.

This can be kind of difficult to do or even understand for some people, especially some of the elderly.

 

Therefore I would like to kindly ask for some sort of toggle switch in the settings that allows the user to change between:

 

Normal - Pressing the skip-back button within a track skips to the beginning of the track that's currently playing, pressing it again will skip to the previous track.

 

Easy - Pressing the skip-back button within a track skips to the beginning of the previous track immediately.

 

Thank you for your consideration.

 

Kind regards,

Max
