This is among the features that I miss in the media player: make it so that swiping right moves you back to the previous track when music is not playing.

I'd like the cover actions to be like this:

When music is playing--> Swipe right = Stop playing, Swipe left = Next track

When music is not playing --> Swipe right = previous track, Swipe left = Continue/Start playing

Yes! I've been missing the previous track cover action and this is a natural way to add that action.

If four-directional cover actions were possible (are they possible?) then the media player is a natural candidate for that, perhaps: left:skip prev, right:skip next, down:play&pause, up: not sure; perhaps skip to random other song in the playlist?

@shallimus Think about it. What if you have multiple apps running and you want to go to lock or launcher. The cover actions would really mess with the basic interaction.

By the way, the Lighthouse app from Jolla store is a good example where I'm coming from with the cover actions.
