Cannot pause music on lock screen

Newbie

Hello All,

 

When the Galaxy 8 phone is locked it allows me to go back a song and skip to the next song when Spotify is playing but it will not allow me to pause the song. It cues me to "Use Fingerprint to Unlock"

Android 9, last update 2/28/2020 (current), Face Widgets for music on lock screen is on (cycled it off and on), rebooted phone. Thanks in advance for any help you may offer.

Hey @Advocatus! Welcome to the Spotify Community. ^^

 

That's odd.

Have you tried reinstalling your app to see if that fixes this issue? If not here's a step by step tutorial.

 

Let me know how it goes! ^^

Peace
