Hey there,
I've been able to put a music player on the lock screen but it would only play music from the app that came with the phone, whereas I want to control Spotify. Is there a fix for this? Thanks in advance!

May I ask on what model device you are having this issue?

Looking forward to your reply,
So I have Huawei P smart 2019 and was using Google Play Music (GPM) for a long time. Until today, because i switched to a Spotify. And when I tried to listen to the music it works perfect but there wasn't any widget on lock screen. It's really annoying but I don't know how to fix it. I tried enabling notifications on settings and restarting phone.

Hi @SooNW,

Welcome on the Huawei Community. I merged your topic with this thread to avoid double topics.

A quick Google search got me to this topic on the Spotify Community. Could you please try the those tips and let us know if it helped? 🙂
Hey, @SooNW.
Try to change your lockscreen back to magazine lock and see if that fixs the widget issue.
