    Squeeze Control, would it be possible to have a widget full control

    Hi,
    Would is be possible to have a widget that has the same possibilities as the started program?
    My aim is to have a single tab on Android just for controlling lms (including now play) without the need to start an app.
    SqueezeBoxes: 1x Transporter (Living room) 1x SB2 (shed), 1x Radio (Kitchen), 1x Boom (Dining room), 1x piCorePlayer (jacuzzi), 1x piCorePlayer (Garden) 1x OSMC + Squeezelite (Movie room), 1x Touch (Study 2), few spare unit's
    Server: LMS on Pi3 7.9.1. on PcP 3.21
    Network: AVM Fritzbox, Netgear Smart Switch 24p, 3x Ubiquity

    There is a widget for Orange Squeeze but clicking on the widget opens the app. That does not seem to be what you want though.

    While it would be possible to have a widget that would not fully invoke an app and just send commands in the background to the server, the widget would not be able to receive any sort of status info. So it wouldn't be able to display the currently playing song or even show if the player is playing or paused. To receive status info from the server, there needs to be a persistent connection to the server, which means an app needs to be running.

    You can kind of get what you want with Squeeze Ctrl. When you use the widget to connect to the server, the app would launch in the background and only show up in the notification panel.

    Thanks for explaining. This mains that's impossible to realize what I wanted because of system limitations.
