Above screen is Android's app now playing screen for music.

Wouldn't be awesome if all artist's listed have links to their detail screen?

There's too many identical feature requests at this point. You don't need to create separate ones for each app.

Although i haven't searched this, i for one am bad for not using keywords when posting, how would one know if a feature request is app specific or a broader request (something that is needed in multiple apps)?  I know in the greater scheme of things you guys are working to get all the apps as close as possible with one and the other.  But there are still differences out there.

Feature requests should go in the feature requests section of the forum and you can just open one topic per concept and it can be used for all apps.

Thanks @@Luke. I thought I should refer to each client. Got it.

I currently use Chromecast therefore there is no button.

I see no button on the web interface nor on the Android mobile app.

 

So I really do not know exactly how this function is implemented on TV apps.

 

But a track can have various artists - they can even diverse from albun's artist - so I am talking about a means to reach to any of track's artists detail pages.

 

Does this button on TV app does this?

Currently you would only be able to access the first artist for a given track.  However, that covers the vast majority of them.

I understant the vast majority of users do not tag artist tracks and/or the album artist.

 

But for the ones that do tag...

 

... as you said Emby will show only the "first" artist.

And this "first" is not the first as tagged. It is a random first.

 

I understand this issue's relevance is related to actual user Emby is seeking for.

I collect music. I have a huge collection, tag everything and would like to use Emby to store as much information as possible regarding tunes and artists.

I also would presume this is should be the user Emby developers are trying to reach.

 

For the ones not interested on collecting music, Spotify provides simple free music hearing services.

 

But I am glad you just got the idea. Improving Emby is developers team decision.

 

Facts are the interface provides no way to directly reach (link) ANY artist of the track being played if your scenario is a mobile/web casting to Chromecast.
