My Question or Issue

Basically when a song has more than one artist, all of them should be displayed separated by a comma on the device lock screen. But on the lock screen, only 1 artist's name if displayed i.e. the first one in the track. This happens even when the phone is connected to Car audio via Bluetooth. Only one artist is displayed on the Car display too.


I'm attaching the screenshots from both within the app and lock screen.

Hey @Sivapratap, welcome to the Community.
Hope you're doing great!


If a other artists names aren't displayed when you're in the full screen player or just in the minimized playing bar inside the app then they won't be displaye on the lock screen either or elsewhere. Usually other artists names are displayed next to the song title inside brackets.

Hope it helps 🙂


Thanks for the response. Other artist names are displayed in the full
screen view, but in the minimized player inside the app, they aren't
displayed. And the lock screen is showing what the minimized player is
showing. I have never faced this issue in any other streaming apps. Usually
they display all the artist names separated by a ,

Can someone please help with this. I would like to make the decision of whether or not to got for premium after my free trial ends, based on the solution to this issue.


Hey @Sivapratap,


In this particular case this is expected behavior with Spotify.

However, if you'd like to see all track info from the lock screen in the future, I’d suggest starting a new thread in the Community Ideas Exchange.

This’ll allow users, Stars, and Moderators to vote and comment on it 🙂
