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

I had the issue of the spotify controls from the lock screen widget not working.

 

What resolved the issue for me was:

 

Settings > Lock Screen > Face Widgets > Turn off the music option

Spotify then worked for me straight away.At a guess I would say  there might be some type of resource clash with the default samsung music which I don't use and spotify. So turning that off resolved the issue for me.


After trying every other solution on this thread, disabling FaceWidgets was the only that worked for me. My phone now uses Spotify's built-in lock screen controls and works fine.

Yes I have the same problem with YouTube when I am running I have to keep stopping and restart, also I have been very disappointed with the picture quality on my galaxy 10+ or maybe I have not gotten the use of it yet.

Having fixed mine it broke again so I rolled back to the normal Google Play Services etc. However, this weekend it seems to have fixed itself. It so happens that I also used my Headphones (with controls) on the plane so perhaps this is what fixed mine as well. Weird.

OK, so, after this broke yet again, I fixed it by putting my Headphones in...however, I don't think it actually started working until I'd clicked on the headphone controls the first time. Yesterday I'd tried simply plugging them in without success but today I used them properly to pause/skip forward etc.

Hey! So I believe I finally figured it out! If shutting off battery optimization for spotify doesn't work, then you have to go to your settings... type in " face widgets " and uncheck music! Worked right away for me. Hopefully that solve your issue and everyone elses.

I don't understand though... Surely this thread is about the Face Widget being the part that's broken. I could have told you that your could change to the standard notification controls by turning it off weeks ago! That said, now that I've discovered that my headphone controls don't work properly this could be a good interim solution for that. The fact of the matter is that Amazon music works fine so it must be a Spotify issue. I think we just need to wait for them to fix it.

Maybe weird but I just plugged my headphones in and removed the cable and it seems to have resolved the issue.
