Feature request: add Play/Pause, Back, Forward, etc to Activities

It would be great to see these buttons on the widget and in the app control bar be available as activities via the Android API.  Currently the app exposes "add to list" and "speak" as activities. I'm trying to write a Tasker script that would let me control "play/pause," "back," and "forward" using voice commands

    Maybe "Play" would work if you manage to master the necessary code, but for Pause, back, forward - the script would be hearing what the app is playing and may not hear your voice...

    Actually with headphones, this would not be a problem. For example I use AirPods when running which are even better because of better mic. The script already works fine when listening to books using VLC.
