Ugh.. Came here to find out if there's a solution, only saw that 6 pages of people have the same problem... Well, just hope that emui 5.1 will fix this... It starts to get more annoying every minute...
This has been getting on my nerves for so long, the lock screen wiget is completely bugged, even the scroll-down bar doesn't work as intended (shows only half of the widget, not responding properly etc.) Step up your game, Spotify!!!

But we have to root our phone.. 😞
It means that it's Huawei who decided to block spotify...
why the F would they block spotify but allow f.e google music. it just does not make any **bleep** sense. now i have to root my one-month-old phone to get the app working properly?
That's true, that there is no album cover art on locked screen. However, on (not only) mine Honor 8 and some other Huawei phones, the lockscreen widget acts weird and doesn't function properly. I posted what it does, several pages back in this thread.
@AdrianTi - Few minutes ago, I just received Honor8 update to FRD-L09C432B389 and now the spotify lockscreen widget IS WORKING! (no factory reset) At least for now, it functions properly and will see for how long.
As far as I am concerned, the album art was available only on previous EMUI 4.1 on Android 6. Now with EMUI 5.0 and Android 7, it is not possible.
I had problem that Spotify didn't show up on lock screen at all even I had all notifications allowed. Then I tried different theme on my phone and after it I had Spotify on lock screen and everything works well. Phone is Honor 7 with Android 6 (EMUI 4.0.3).
WAS THERE ANY SOLUTION? Still happening to me in Android 7 nougat. Nothing. Nada.
