I understand this has been solved multiple times, however those are usually by people with airplay devices. I have an iPhone 8 and a IOS 16.1 update. I have just received a play one for Christmas and set it up. I am able to play music but I can only adjust the volume manually on my phone (the volume buttons on the side) while in the app. While on my lock screen I do not see the song nor can I control the volume via my phone. I have made sure to enable Lock Screen controls, turn on hardware volume control. I have tried multiple solutions such as toggling the controls and resetting devices, however it does not seem to work. I don’t believe it would be any airplay because I do not have any airplay devices. My tv is an older vizio and is not capable. I do not have a Roku. I’m just not sure why I’m unable to control unless in the app.
