Samsung galaxy s7. On the lock screen it doesn't have the old rectangular Google play music controls. I run my phone with the middle battery saver mode. The max battery mode has the old lock screen control but I want that all the time.

This started with the android 8.0 update

I checked all the notification options and inside of google play music but I can't find an option to fix it.

This is something with Samsung's UI modifications. Check in Lock Screen > Facewidgets That's where it is on my Tab S3 with Oreo. This puts the controls in the same place as the clock (actually, try swiping the clock, it may already be enabled).
