How to Con­trol au­dio from the Now Play­ing card

Mac Format - - APPLE SKILLS -

1 Take con­trol of mu­sic

When an app is play­ing au­dio in the back­ground, Con­trol Cen­tre’s sec­ond card shows de­tails (tap them to go to the app), play­back con­trols, plus head­phones, Blue­tooth speak­ers and AirPlay speak­ers you can send the au­dio to (one at a time).

2 Pick a tar­get on iPhone

On iPhone, the cur­rent desti­na­tion for au­dio is shown in the bot­tom row of the card. Tap it to ex­pand it and see the list of avail­able speak­ers. Tap one to send au­dio to it, then tap out­side of Con­trol Cen­tre or swipe down on it to close it.

3 Split video and au­dio

You should also use the sec­ond card if you want to watch video on your de­vice yet send its au­dio to a bet­ter speaker; ig­nore the first card’s AirPlay con­trol in this in­stance, as it al­ways sends video and au­dio to your spec­i­fied desti­na­tion.
