    As the title says on my S8+ I played some music via Play Music. Now the last song I played keeps on appearing on the AOD display no matter what I do. I have ended play music and restarted my phone and it still appears on AOD.

    I have googled it and seen that it is a known problem but nothing I try to get rid of it works. It might disappear for a while and then it reappears.

    Anybody had this problem and then fixed it?

    Encountered the same issue. I am guessing that if enough people complain, it may be fixed in a future update.

    Google Play Music, which I love, can be annoying that way. Since Nougat, even on my previous 7edge, it'd just show up in the list of open apps for no reason—even when I hadn't used it in days. Constantly had to be force closing it. I'm noticing the same problem you're having with my S8+.

    Yes, this is annoying as hell. I listened to Slacker on my phone and I always listen to a comedy station. The last bit I listened to was titled "I love..." the last part of the title is referencing part of a woman's body. So I'm like great, now this crazy title keeps popping up on my AOD. I had to let something else play to at least change it to something less embarrassing.

    It can be hidden. Go to Settings > Lock Screen and Security > Information and Face Widgets > Face Widgets. Toggle off the music controller. Easy peasy.

    Ok. I've done this and it's gone. Does this mean it's permanently gone now?

    No. You can toggle it on again whenever you wish.

    Thanks very much for the tip. I changed it to show the next alarm and schedule.

    Great.

    Some of the string locations aren't exactly intuitive -- we'll be finding little things for months.
