Well... I've updated mastodon.social and mastodon.online, now if you upload an audio file that has album art, the album art will be displayed in the audio player. Beyond this, there's a new API for manually adding such thumbnails to audio (and video) uploads, but no UI for it yet.

Beyond this, the OpenGraph tags now correctly refer to audio, and the embedded player (twitter:player) has been updated.

Unfortunately I don't think those changes have any practical implications right now; I am not aware of any sites embedding og:audio, and not aware of any sites except Twitter using twitter:player. But now they could!

Looks cool to me 🤷‍♂️
