    Sorry, all I can tell you is that both the Google Music app and the Amazon Music app show the lock screen controls on 4.1.1

    I don't believe this is true, unless I'm missing something.

    Music controls on lock screen-uploadfromtaptalk1361330877589.jpgBelieve what you like - they both show the Play/Pause and Previous/Next controls on my lock screen. It's worked the same with Swipe and Pattern lock screens (I haven't tried PIN or Password methods). Here's a screenshot of the Amazon Music app on the lock screen.

    I believe you but I'm confused, because I must be missing a setting or something. My Play music app does not show "lockscreen controls", it DOES appear in the notification tray, but not on the lockscreen. I'm completely stock, do you know how this is activated?

    Unfortunately I didn't do anything special to enable this behavior. In fact, I did a Factory Reset just to be sure it wasn't some other app enabling this, and to be sure it wasn't some system setting.
    As noted previously, I've tried it with Swipe and Pattern security settings - I haven't tried it with None, PIN or Password.
    My phone is on Verizon, running 4.1.1. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful, but I didn't do anything special - it just works.
