I just received my Google Pixel running Android 7.1. I started to set up spotify. I am able to log without issue and play music inside the app. The problem that I have is that I tried to set up the widget on my home screen to control the music. The widget appears correctly but will not respond to any press to pause or adjust the song. Also when I'm playing music inside the app and the lock screen appears I do not get any controls on the lock screen.
Is anyone else experiencing the same issues?
