I did the last 2 spotify updates on my phone, but when I did them I ended up losing my notification panel and lock screen controls. Now I have to have the app open and displayed on my screen to change the song instead of being able to use the controls. I've tried everythi g I can think of. I just want my controls back. Any tips are welcome.
Try restarting your phone. Justt to be clear, you're saying that the spotify notification is not appearing at all on thee lock screen when music is playing? You're not talking about the Always On Display?
If you still have problems with this, please confirm your android and spotify versions, thanks.
