album art and Android Auto

Recommended Posts

I found a bug assuming it's not intended.  Android Auto doesn't display albumart when the "Show Albumart on Android Lockscreen" setting is disabled.  This is easily reproducible but needs a reboot to take effect.  Pixel 3 stock Android 9.  

 

I don't like lockscreen albumart but like it on my car dash :-)

Unfortunately, this is the same API which is used by Android for lockscreens and Auto. Actually, lock screen background album art depends on Android variant/OEM (e.g. Samsungs never show that). I think extra line clarifying Auto album art will be added for that option. Thanks!

Thanks Max.  I thought it might be something like that. Interesting it doesn't happen with some OEMs.  Do you mean a line will be added to Poweramp for this, or added to the API?

It's just started happening to me after an Android Auto update, previously I was getting album art correctly on the car headunit without needing to see it on my phone lockscreen too (which I don't want).
