Transport controls enable users to control audio and video playback, such as pausing a video, going to the next song, or jumping 30 seconds forward in an audiobook.
How to use transport controls
Transport controls use three icons: play, pause, and skip. You should always use on-screen controls in combination with—not in place of—voice controls for media playback. You can use transport controls for the following items:
Live radio stations and channels
Programs, shows, and podcasts
Audiobooks and voice recordings
News and Flash Briefings
On-demand movies and TV shows
Types of transport controls
Previous / Next
The default control includes the most commonly used actions: previous, play/pause, and next. Previous goes to the beginning of the media track. Tapping previous again goes to the previous track. Next goes to the next media track.
When the user taps the jump 10 button, the media goes back or forward 10 seconds, and then resumes playing.
When the user taps the jump 30 button, the media goes back or forward 30 seconds, and then resumes playing.
You can customize the secondary controls for your experience, such as navigating between audiobook chapters. Always make your secondary controls paired functions.
