[ANDROID] No media player control on lockscreen


Democracy is a myth
Hi, here with a peculiar issue that is bugging me.

I use Gaana, Amazon Music such streaming services.
Also Poweramp.

The basic control used to show up on lockscreen even few months back.
Basic control: Previous, Next, play/pause. Song name.

Suddenly I don't see any such control on my lockscreen. Songs play without any issue though, but to change track either I need to unlock Phone or use Headphone buttons to do the same.

Anyone has any solution for this?


I've been using Poweramp both on my OP3 and Honor 10. Today, I haven't been able to even get into the library on Honor 10 and can't change currently playing song from poweramp home page.
Pretty sure mine is a rom issue like yours. If nothing works, try musicolet. Based on a couple hours of usage, it hasn't disappointed me so far.

My handset details are as below:-

Asus Max Pro M1
Stock ROM.
Android 9 (PKQ1.WW_Phone-16.2017.1912.060-20191125)

Nova launcher.


I am the master of my Fate.
There is lockscreen setting in PowerAmp. It will enable the lockscreen controls.
But most of the time it also depends if ROM supports it or not.

Current gen phones have been toying with this very idea of playing/selecting media on a locked screen. I dont know if its for safety purposes, or something else.
