Remove Spotify controls from lock screen on iPhone

Visitor

Is there a way to remove the Spotify controls completely from the lock screen on my iPhone XR running iOS 13?

 

I keep pressing pause or skipping tracks when I'm holding my phone and I swear I will throw this phone across the room if I miss my favourite part of a song again! 

 

I've tried turning off notifications in the iPhone settings, but that does naff all.

Hey @katyjaneod, welcome to the Community.

Hope you're doing great!

Unfortunately that's an iOS feature that you can't disable. Everything that is playing something will show up there.

 

Thanks 🙂

Why are you asking people to tag Your answer as a solution when you have not solved or explained anything? Why is this feature not being developed? Spotify and the community should encourage new features, especially when they are as frequently requested as this one.
