Windows 10 Is Getting Media Controls for Sound Volume Flyout

Sound Volume Media Controls Icon

Microsoft is updating the sound volume flyout in Windows 10 with a highly anticipated feature - it will allow the user to control media app, e.g. to pause your audio or video player, or switch the track.

The change has already landed in Windows 10 build 19603, however, it is a work-in-progress, so it is hidden and doesn't appear. The twitter user Albacore was managed to get it working. Here is a screenshot of the new feature:

Build 19603 is notable for such hidden features. Its another interesting addition is a 'What's new' page in Settings. See
