Intermittent Lockscreen Controls in Android 11


I updated my Pixel 4 to Android 11 yesterday, and since then there’s a 50/50 chance whether there are player controls on my lockscreen. If they are not present on the lockscreen, I have to unlock my phone, pull down from the top, and then do it a second time to show the controls. Obviously this is unideal if I’m trying to quickly pause/fast forward in a podcast.

Thanks for any help with this!


Sorry to read that, @kmadigan. We’d like to inform the issue is known to us and we’ve resolved it. The fix will most likely be included in the next version we’ll roll out soon. Cheers.
