    Default Anyway to skip song without going to Music app?

    With music playing, I wish I could jump to the next song without having to go back into the music app and hit next. On my Blackberry I could hold the Volume Up button to skip. Anyone know?

    You could use the music app widget. Also note that music controls should appear on the lock screen as well.

    Literally just realized I could swipe down from the top of the screen and hit the next button from there. Guess that works but the way I mentioned in my first post was better (on my blackberry) because I could do it while my phone was locked.

    Agreed, I came from a blackberry and I loved that, the best thing you can do is to buy some headphones with an in-line remote, so you can pause, change the volume, or change the song.

    Bluetooth headphones also mostly have music controls on them.

    Edit: just out of curiosity did holding the volume on the blackberry also turn the volume up? I mean, even if it wasn't designed to did it happen on accident sometimes?

    Use a music player like poweramp as this functionality is built in.

    If u click the vol up button it would make it louder, if u held that button it would skip to next song.

    I have the full version of poweramp and the volume keys do not control track skip on my nexus 4 or HTC one. If you have cyanogenmod installed on your phone though it works with all music players. Good function to have when driving. If anyone knows of an app that supports this I'd for sure be interested as well.

    Poweramp will show on the lock screen with controls to skip. It's in settings under...LOCK SCREEN. Works on my One.

    Go to settings/personalize/lock screen and select music lock screen and you will get music controls on your lock screen.

    You also get music controls on the wallpaper lock screen. But I suppose that's only when you are playing music. The other would probably allow you to start playback initially if that is important to the user.

    Thanks for the suggestions. Still wish I could skip with holding vol up button, but no big deal

    Hi, I know this is old post but if you still need help try "pocket skip track" on Google play. I had the same problem because i had cyanogenmod on my old phone. It was great fuction and this app working great as well You have to set maximum delay between two clicks to +-120 ms.
