Audio tag

I would like to ask about the current status of the audio tag rendering for audio only sources. More than one year ago everything was rendered using a video tag, regardless of the source (see:

Were there any changes in the meantime?

We‘ll need this feature to be able to serve audio-only content as a fallback for smartphones without covering the whole web app with a fullscreen player.

If there are no changes, could you please tell something about the roadmap at this issue?

Thanks a lot
