Starting with Windows 10, version 1607, UWP apps that use the MediaPlayer class or AudioGraph class to play media are automatically integrated with the System Media Transport Controls by default. When using automatic integration, you can get an instance of the MusicDisplayProperties class using the MediaPlaybackItem class. Call GetDisplayProperties to get an instance of the MediaItemDisplayProperties class. Update the object with the values you want to be displayed for the item in the SMTC and then call ApplyDisplayProperties to commit the changes. For how-to guidance on using the SMTC from your app, see Integrate with the SystemMediaTransportControls.

When manually controlling the SMTC, get an instance of MusicDisplayProperties by using the SystemMediaTransportControlsDisplayUpdater class. For how-to guidance on manually controlling the SMTC, see Manual control of the System Media Transport Controls.
