Re-Enable your locked screen music control after android upgrade

Have you recently upgraded your android phone (5.0.2) only to find that the really useful buttons that you use to skip tracks no longer appears on your locked screen?

Well here is how to get that menu back:

  • Navigate to the settings app.
  • Select sound and notification.
  • Select when device is locked
  • To get your media player buttons back set this to “Hide Sensitive Notification Content”.

This controls the information the locked screen will show. A potentially useful security feature but was implemented without warning  hiding some functionality.

Now when your phone locks and you are playing music you should have the locked screen media player controls back.
