Lollipop: No lockscreen media control when sensitive is content hidden


Recommended Posts

On Android Lollipop, go to Settings > Sound & notification > When device is locked and choose  Hide sensitive content. In this case Poweramp won't show media control buttons (Play/Pause, Forward, Reverse) on the lockscreen. 
Is there any setting that needs to be changed?

Poweramp version: 2.0.10-build-570

From your description, I'd suggest "hide sensitive content" should not be selected. I assume that it is treating anything which actively controls functions on the phone without unlocking it first as "sensitive".

I'd suggest "hide sensitive content" should not be selected.

 

In that case all sensitive information i.e. the contents of WhatsApp messages, text messages etc are shown on the lock screen which causes privacy issues. 

Please note this doesn't happen with Google Play Music, Shuttle Player. I have checked and these apps allow controlling media even when sensitive information is hidden. This leads me to believe this is something Poweramp has to support inherently. "Desensitize" media controls maybe?

I'm here to endorse it. Poweramp need to update so it uses the interruption stuff on lollipop, it should be just flag it as non-sensitive or something, shouldn't be hard to do, but it will make BIG improvment in usage for lollipop users.

Other players already have controls in lock screen in lollipop, like podcast addicted.
