    Hey guys,

    There is one thing that prevents me from installing the lollipop update - the Lockscreen. When I listen to music (Spotify, Music Player,... ), there are these three nice and big buttons for previous/next track and play/pause, I guess y'all know them. Do they still exist after the lollipop update? I know that I can disable the lockscreen notfications, it would be awesome if anyone could post a Screenshot of the lockscreen while the music player is running.

    Cheers guys

    Yup, they are on the lock screen just like kit kat. I use Google music and no issues.

    Google music is the only one that shows right now. Wife had lollipop and Pandora does not show. You have to wait for an update from the app devs

    I use the stock google app or player pro. This is what I get when there is album art and when there is not.

    Thanks guys, sounds good so far. How is your lollipop experience on the note 4 in general?

    skatergirl: why is there just the album art and no music control buttons?

    When running Spotify and Slacker, the album art and control buttons display on the lock page. Works great under Lollipop on my Note 4.

    How does it look like when you turn off the lockscreen notfications? Now there are just these tabs which I don't really like.

    See, you get your actual player on the lock screen. I just get the album art.

    I just tried the whole thing with my girlfriends' G3 - when I turn off lockscreen notifications and start to play some music, there are no buttons on the lockscreen AT ALL! How stupid is that?

    I used Beyond Podcast as my podcast player and it also shows controls on the lockscreen.

    The controls for music are gone if the lockscreen notifications are disabled. I hate the new lockscreen notifications so I disabled them but I really miss having those controls for my music

    Hmmm. Mine shows controls using the Google play music widget. Oddly, though, when I first started the song nothing showed on the lockscreen. I then tapped on the music player widget, that opened gpm, then I closed all of that and locked my screen. Then the controls showed up all the time.

    Yeah that's the case if you don't turn them notifications off.. it's always there.
    For your reference, that's how it is in kitkat and how I want it to be in lollipop as well!

    I had to put another music app on my phone, because everytime I hit play on Spotify on Lollipop the song doesn't play. It starts and immediately shuts down. It worked fine on Kit Kat. Maybe I should try installing again, but I love spotify and I'm not a paying member, just love the music layout better than Tunein Radio and Iheartradio, which are my replacements. I like how Spotify groups the radio stations and music Genres. Are you a paying member on Spotify? Works great on my Mac, just not on the Note 4 since the update to Lollipop.

    EDIT: Nevermind, I just reinstalled the app, they must have fixed it. It's working now. Glad to have it back, as the alternatives I didn't like. I'll keep IHeartradio, but hate the Tunein Radio app. i use to like Slacker Radio on my PC when I had it, but not sure if it's good anymore. Liked their layout, but never tried the app on the phone. Thanks for posting.

    You clearly are not using lollipop then because those large lockscreen music player buttons were removed and are no longer there

    When I use PowerAmp sometimes the lock screen freezes for a second. I think it the stock lock screen coming up for a few seconds before the PowerAmp lock screen. Does yours do this too? If not what settings do you have checked in your lock screen?

    I have Lollipop with lockscreen notifications turned on. Google Play Music does not show any controls on the lockscreen whatsoever when music is playing. Any suggestions?


    UPDATE: Nevermind... I am an *****... I had notifications turned off in the applications menu for PlayMusic. Once I re-checked notifications, it showed the play/pause menu on the lockscreen and the pulldown menu. Duh.
