    I feel like it used to be a play icon, now I see a megaphone type of icon.

    EDIT: I'm talking about the icon next to the song name.

    Nope, just looked on my iPod touch 4g running iOS 5.0.1. It's the same icon :p good observation I guess!

    Oh wait. Just kidding :p it is a new icon haha. I thought you meant the little black now playing in the upper right hand corner :p on the actual song list the icon did change. That really was a good observation haha

    I'm pretty sure that isn't new. I had a screenshot from my iPad that had that there, unless it is just new to he iPhone?

    The speaker icon looks new to me, but maybe it's psychosomatic and I'm convincing myself.

    I actually went on the forums just now to ask this, as I noticed it this morning on my iPod touch. I can't remember what the old one is, but it's certainly new.

    EDIT: Confirmed!

    Old (found via Google Images):

    Noticed this right away too. It's a nice change, as the old one was too much like a volume-related icon.

    Now all they have to do is space out the prev-play-next icons on the lock screen music controls so that I don't keep hitting the wrong on, and I'll be happy :rolleyes:
