Bringing up album track list

This is just a settings issue but I'll be beggered if I can find out which one(s). Just changed phones to an S24 Ultra from a Note 20 Ultra (so Android 13 to 14 as well) and have not rooted it. Having to set PA up from scratch (as well as my other apps!) was more time consuming that the usual 'restore' with Swift Backup but I though best to start afresh. I also didn't want to use the PA backup/restore settings. Anyhow, on the 'old' phone when a track was playing I could press the album art on the screen to bring up a list of tracks on the album that the song being played was from. I almost always have 'shuffle all songs' on as default so this way if I saw a song from a particular album I might think 'I really liked the xyz song from that album I'll play that' I could choose it really easily. I've compared all settings from my old phone andnew and as far as I can see they are identical but this view doesn't come up and it's really frustrating.

Now I realise that the problem lies with me, mostly to do with the fact that once something is set as I like I don't mess about any more so basically forget 'how' to set things up but if anyone could pioiunt me in the right direction I'd appreciate it. I did try searching but including things such as 'album' and 'view' obviously brings up a gazillion unrelated hits ...

Oh, and using 981 on both.

Thanks.

Tapping the album art will take you to the currently playing Category type, which if you started in All Songs will be that one.

You can view a different Category by long-pressing (or use the theee-dots menu) and selecting, for example,  Album.

I don't think that you can change what happens when you tap the album cover, but you have an option that tapping on the Artist/Album text takes you to the album. "Look and Feel" -> "Player Screen" in the settings.

Ah, that works. Many thanks.

Andre supplied 'a' solution above but ....... I used to tap an album cover (sorry, album art embedded in the song) and the album would pop up. Maybe it was a hangover ffrom re-installing PA across many ROM revisions using Swift Backup. Not going to lose any sleep over it .... first world problems and all that.

Thanks again.

The operation triggered by tapping on the Album Cover on the player screen is to show the song list that is currently being played. That has always been the functionality for Poweramp v3.

So if you are listening to a playlist, that's what you'll be taken to - so you can see the current song and what's coming up next. If you are playing All Songs, that's the list that will be opened. Or if you are listening to some albums (such as playing albums by an artist etc) then you'll see the current album's list of songs.
