Apple has updated iTunes with a bunch of the usual fixes and tweaks, but also with one handy new feature.

In OS X, iTunes users can now control music being played in the Notification Center – you can skip songs, pause, play and more. There’s also information about the particular song you’re listening to as well as information about the playlist or album.

Notification Center was a feature included with OS X Mavericks in 2013, as part of Apple’s wider efforts to tie-in features across OS X and iOS. It was with OS X Yosemite in 2014 that the company brought along widgets, a feature that allows users to install small gadgets and tools inside Notification Center that can be used to manipulate the wider system and specific apps.

The new update to iTunes is available now via Software Update in the App Store.
