Controlling players implementing Background Audio
Currently, I can detect and control what the embedded Zune player is currently playing.
The same can't be done with 3rd party apps implementing background audio streaming like soundtracker etc.
Thank you for the suggestion. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
Keep those suggestions and votes coming!

The same is required for detecting what "Nokia Music" is playing when in "radio mode" and eventually displaying lyrics, recommend songs etc from a third party app.
