Fast-forward and rewind in Android Auto
When playing music in Android Auto through doubleTwist, I see that there are five buttons - heart, previous track, play/pause, next track, random on/off.
However, if I use the podcast function in doubleTwist via Android Auto, the buttons change - rewind 10 seconds, previous track, play/pause, next track... and a three-dot button that expands an additional menu that includes a fast-forward 30 seconds button.
The fast-forward and rewind buttons would be really nice to have in the music player, even if they were hidden behind that three-dot button and an expandable menu. I have audiobooks, podcasts downloaded/synced through doubleTwist Sync, and other long tracks where they appear as "music" to doubleTwist Player but really aren't. The only way I can fast-forward or rewind in these, from what I can tell, is Google Assistant voice commands ("Hey, Google, fast forward two minutes").
Is it possible to get the more detailed set of buttons into the music player? Maybe it's heart, previous track, play/pause, next track, three-dot button and the random toggle gets moved to the expanded menu.
Thanks for the feedback on Auto UI/UX. I'll forward your comments to the production manager for consideration.
By the way, the two different interfaces are determined by the genre.
The -10/+30 podcast UI is used for the following genres:

That's cool, I'll have to try that out. It'd still be nice to have that all the time, if possible. Maybe an option?0
