Android phones, music player and album art on lock screen

Post by stuart @ Thu Nov 29, 2018 3:12 pm

How do I make this madness stop.

I really don't need the album art of whatever I'm listening to full screen on the lock screen.

Especially since some of the stuff I listen to has quite questionable art work, e.g. certain Marilyn Manson tracks. Almost makes me want to not unlock the phone in the office in case someone spots and it causes an issue.

Google isn't turning up a way to turn this idiocy off.

Very helpful.

I don't need to be replying to text and this is my bloody lock screen wallpaper (without the text)

What phone and music player? I don't get album art on the lockscreen with Spotify on my Note 9.

I think Rock is Dead is your only decent track on that so you should just not listen to it!

Whereas I thought Stuart had mistakenly turned on the mirror app again

I think Coma White and the Dope Show are great tracks.

It's a Sony Experia using the music player that comes with the phone.

I've fixed this temporarily by installing Rocket Music player and it has an option to not change your lock screen to album art, but it shows ads while using the app :(

I suppose, kind of. Suspect I’m put off by the whole persona he invented for that album - was it ‘omega’ or something?? - and feel it’s just the sort of art-rock wank I hate. But yeah, Dope Show’s awrite.

If you like the music player, it's probably only a couple of quid to get rid of the ads. Worth it if the lock screen thing is a big issue.

The beauty of Android is that if you don't like the music player for some reason, you can get rid of it and get another one that you do like.

Aren't you some sort of programmer? write yourself an app that behaves exactly as you want...

I heard that he codes layouts for MySpace and does visual basic macros for that woman in accounts with the big boobies. But she's gay and he doesn't realise, but she likes his macros, so she doesn't tell him.

That's why he drinks, btw.
