audio and video is still badly supported on mobile unfortunately. It’s not intentional.
In this case you are probably running into:
The other problem was also a bug that was fixed a while ago. i’ll link the reports

Hi mobile teams,
Awhile ago I pointed out (https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91621
<https://phabricator.wikimedia.org/T91621>) that the important template in content
pages that directs readers from article subsections to "main articles" is
missing from mobile web pages. I have since found other templates with relevant
reader-oriented content to be missing from mobile web. With the latest Android app release
this problem appears to be happing at greater scale in mobile apps now as well. For
example the audio demonstration of jazz that I placed at the top of the "Jazz"
article on English Wikipedia is missing from Android and from mobile web. Please, please
__do not__ use technical means to delete content or templates from mobile views when they
are intended for our readers on all platforms and were placed in articles through the
efforts of volunteers, especially not without a community discussion first. Formatting
tweaks are negotiable, but this kind of content elimination makes me upset. I feel that it
degrades Wikipedia's value to readers, and as a person who adds audio and other
templates to articles I find it discouraging to have my efforts removed from the view of
so many Wikipedia readers.
Thank you for your work to make Wikipedia reading be a good experience on mobile.
