Implement new Chrome media controls feature

Noticed in the stock Chrome browser this past weekend, they added a native media control feature/extension! It dynamically shows when there is media playing in a tab. For example, this shows for me when I am playing a video on YouTube or music on a streaming service. This is super helpful, in that I can now avoid trying to find an extension that sometimes makes this work and sometimes doesn’t. On top of that, a lot of these media key extensions require extra permissions, which now I could avoid.

Hi @reony,
That feature is currently available in our Brave Nightly build (
It will be part of Brave Release soon.
