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

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:
