The "Now Playing Widget" stopped working after the latest update

The "Now Playing" touch bar widget disappeared since it was automatically deactivated after installing the update. Even after manual reactivation and several restarts of BTT, the app won't function properly. I eventually managed to get the Music icon back after deleting and reconfiguring the widget, but whatever I play is being ignored.

Edit: For other apps (Teams, Chrome...), the widget seems to operate normally. Only Apple Music seems to be ignored.

I am the only person with this issue?

Kind Regards
