So, I use i3wm and I will never go back to Gnome or the sorts. Anyways, I setup my function keys to send commands to my phone
it uses AutoInput,AutoNotification,Tasker,and gotigy (server and apps)
so the keys are media keys so volume up on my pi's keyboard does just that. Same with pause, play, next, etc...
and when ever the song changes I get the info on the web using MQTT.
I just love technology
@stephen it's amazing, but scary as well.
