Re: Lock screen media controls don't work (Spotify)

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Well, I did all these steps but music controls still do not work on the lock screen. I recently update to Android P on a Note 8 and that is when all started to happen. I did a factory reset and it started to work; however, at some point it stopped. The funny part is that the issue is only with Spotify, not with any other Music Player.

I had the same issue and the below solution works.

Open Settings
- Search for "Optimise battery usage"

- Click on "Apps not optimised" and select "All"
- Search for Spotify and disable battery optimization.

 

After doing that you have to restart your phone than you will be able to skip, pause and play back songs..

This worked for me. Also resolved a similar issue with the Square app on my Note 8. 

 

Thank you!
