So you are frustrated that a 10-year old device is not fully supported? I guess you are super happy with the 720p output (must be a really old tv, as well). Each to their own, I'm loving 4k - its awesomeIndeed. This means I can ditch my perfectly functional ATV2 when I have to restore my iPhone for one reason or another (like a botched iOS upgrade). If that happens I'm definitely not going to upgrade it to another ATV.
No, it doesn't — it depends on what you are playing. I never use the remote app and I still get the 10-second skip buttons. Moreover, when you use the control center remote, the content is now on your iPhones lock screen as "Now Playing" and gives you all the same controls as if it was playing on your phone — including the 10-second skip buttons.The Control Center version lacks 10-second skip buttons, as well as what others have mentioned. It's definitely a step down using the Control Center version, and I've never really liked it.
You can’t see details about what’s playing including the media timeline in Control Center. Hopefully they’ll add that.
With the Control Center Widget can you access the currently playing DETAILS/INFO as you could with the App?
they need to put volume control on the app, or maybe i just can't find it 😑

Apple has two remote apps. The original Remote app (Blue icon with play symbol), which was renamed itunes Remote at one point in time, and concerned controlling home sharing and itunes, and Remote which was an icon of the Apple remote and simulated the Apple remote control for ATV.
Can't say I used the TV remote one all that much but I used to use the itunes one quite often. Even with Apple Music items in my library. I still find it better for music control of my library, but it lacks the searching and discovery of items on Apple Music not in your library, which is unfortunate. Both are still in my history, I wonder if both or just the TV one was removed?
That’s nice, but the control center one has NEVER worked, unless I use the app first ):
The Control Center remote works perfectly fine for me, and I don't even have the antiquated app installed AFAIK. Maybe delete the antiquated app? At any rate, the Control Center functionality is great for typing searches, which is what I mainly use it for. I use a 3rd party remote for most other things though since the Apple remote blows chunks...
