    Default Galaxy S4 Lock Screen Music Control

    How do I remove this from my lock screen, I just want the default digital clock to show on the lock screen when I am not listening to any music.

    I've closed every application on the phone and it still wont go away.

    Thanks

    This should help you learn about how to control your lock screen widgets.

    I've tried messing around with all those setting but have had no luck. I tried the setting tab in the music player and there is nothing in there either...

    Try this. On the lock screen put your finger on the music widget and slide down. That will open up your lock screen widgets. Then simply select and drag the music widget into the trash can like you would do on your home screen. See if that works.

    Why not go to the player - menu - settings - end. That should close it all even in the notifications panel.

    Pull the notification center, then press the X on the music player

    Hey everyone. So I am having the same issue as the OP, except that I have also tried all of the suggestions above and have not been able to get this music widget to go away. I've had the phone for a week now and this has never been on my screen until today. Long-pressing gives me no options to remove it, the only shortcut I have active is the camera icon, I have no active applications to X out of in my notification bar or my task manager. It appears that my music app is already closed, but the widget is still active on my lock screen. Here are images of what I see. If anyone sees what I am missing or has suggestions, would definitely love them bc not having a clock on my lockscreen is mildly annoying.

    Is this the Google Play music player? There should be an option to disable the lockscreen widget in the settings

    It is not Google Play Music or Samsung Music, the app itself is just listed as "Music." I don't even have lock-screen widgets active, the music wasn't playing, and I looked in the settings for the app. No luck in getting this to disappear. I had to just restart my phone as well. I've looked in every possible setting to see if I was missing something, but no such luck.

    Does it disappear after a certain amount of time? I don't even know. First time this "widget" type thing has ever appeared on my lock screen. -_____-

    Hello! I've managed to fix the issue on my phone. Home Screen -> Settings -> More -> Application Manager -> All
    Scroll down to Samsung Music, select it and disable it.

    I got to this by calling Samsung. They told me to clear the cache which you can do from the same screen. I'm not sure if that will fix it, I just disabled it because I use Google Music. So if you use the Samsung app you might want to just try clearing its cache and see if that fixes it.

    If you do Disable it and want to re-enable it, scroll all the way to the bottom. All disabled apps show up at the bottom of your apps list. Also, there is both Music and Samsung Music. Samsung Music is the culprit. I think you could still use the Music app even if you kill the Samsung Music app. Hope this helps.

    How does one pull the notification center? Is that an app?

    Is the notification center an app? Or is it native to the Android OS?

    From the lock screen you can swipe down the widget and long press.

    I think he's referring to the status bar?

    Thank you.

    Nothing in this thread worked but your solution did. I signed up for an account to tell you how grateful I am.

    The S4 is too smart for it's own good, just be a phone S4, quit trying to know what I'm thinking before I think it. Just be a good phone, you try too hard.

    I guess there is quite a big problem I found that nobody has mentioned yet and that is the moment when you register the phone with an existing google account.I did this and afterwards everything on the phone was a mess.I had f.e two Galleries and it took me some time to unserstand it.Now there is the problem with this Icon called "music".The "Samsung music" Icon never was present among my apps because after I registered the phone with my existing google account, the "Samsung music" was disabled and I didnt manage yet to bring it back.A possible solution might be to reset the phone and to start all over with a brand new google account that was never used with any other phone, but Im not an expert and before I try it I would like to know wether this is the right solution. You can find this out if you scroll through your widgets and install the "Samsung music" widget which leads you to a totally different surface when you tap on the big Icon on the left side of the widget.

    This has been bugging me too, so thanks much for the info in the thread.

    What I think has been causing this is that the music player is actually spawning a 2nd (undeletable) lock screen page. With the Samsung music player widget showing, swipe right and you go back to the Lock Screen #1, and there's the clock & Life Companion message. You can press on that home screen and go into page edit mode and even drag that page to a trash can at the top of the screen and delete it, but you can't do that on the music player's page. Even if you swipe down on the player and extend its widget frame, you just get an expanded song list, no controls or options, and no hot spots that will let you edit the page. If you turn on multiple widgets, then a third lock screen page is added with suggested shortcuts, which can be edited.

    The dynamic second lock screen page seems to be the same behavior the default music app and amazon mp3 app have if you are playing a song when you lock the screen. Unfortunately in this case Samsung's program is auto-starting and offering up purchase suggestions to me. So, it won't go away, and I've gone ahead and disabled the item as noted above. Doing so prompted me to roll Samsung music back to the factory version. I guess this is an app that needs to not be updated again... ever.

    On the other hand if you just needed to know you can swipe the music app and see the clock again, well, there you go.

    Settings>application manager>all, select the app, then select Turn off. This should solve it!

    I just got the phone, the exact same thing happened. I tried everything, finally I went into the "music" app, in the settings it will allow you to delete, but you still have to restart your phone. It is finally gone.
