My Question or Issue

In the past months, I would be able to pause my music from the Lock Screen and after some time I would still be able to play the song from the Lock Screen. Now I pause the song and after a few minutes of the phone locked, my song no longer appears on the Lock Screen and have to unlock and start the music from Spotify, which has shut down.

Low power mode is off and background app refresh is on.

A small issue, but could someone help with this.

Hi @Andylemp,

 

Welcome to the Community and thank you for posting.

 

Usually the behavior of those widgets come from the device and OS itself. With this said, did you notice this change after a certain update on your phone or the Spotify app? 

 

Also, please let us know if this happens with the lock screen widget from other streaming apps or only with Spotify. 

 

Keep us posted.
