"Now playing" of media_player on iOS lockscreen

is it possible to integrate home assistant, or rather media_player entities, into the “now playing” feature of iOS? When some media plays on the iPhone you can control it from the lock screen or the control center. I would like to control media_player entities in the same way.

I think a similar feature exists on android where you can control media_player entities from the notification area.

Unfortunately I couldn’t find any documentation on this subject.

At first thought I would think not. This would be especially true since the media being played is not actually being played on the iPhone… I’d love to be wrong though
