Media Control App Shortcuts gone after update - Samsung S10 5G OneUI 4.1 Android

Android 12
I noticed that a couple of "security updates" ago (maybe 2-3 months ago) the media controls functionality of my Samsung S10 5G changed. The way it used to function was you swipe down on the notification shade twice and you get to the 'Media Output' icon. Once pressing that, you get the screen with your currently playing media app with the back/play/forward buttons. Above that was a row of frequently used media apps that you could select from to quickly open them. I used to use that feature all the time, but now it is gone. I just opened a Tab A8 and it still has the functionality I'm used to. The tablet is running Android 11, OneUI 3.1. There also appears to be an option to turn on or off "show app shortcuts" from the media output settings screen (see pics one and two from link). This option does not exist on my phone. Did Google remove the app shortcuts feature from Media Output? Pics below. First two are tablet, last three are phone: [https://imgur.com/a/xbiohTX](https://imgur.com/a/xbiohTX)
