Does Fitbit Charge 5 Have a Remote Music Control Feature?

The Fitbit Charge 5, by default, does not feature remote music control. There’s no option to play, pause, or change music playing on the phone, be it on Spotify, YouTube Music, JioSaavn, Poweramp, or the built-in music player.

The band’s predecessor, i.e., the Fitbit Charge 4, did have Spotify control exclusive to premium users. However, the feature was dropped on Charge 5. Thankfully, a workaround lets you control music via the band for the music streaming app called Gaana.
