Lockscreen Album Art, Sashay Away

    I can say with confidence that I am not the only one who hates the lockscreen album art when playing media, and for more reasons than one.

    Sometimes, the album art is just not appropriate for something I want on my lockscreen! I don't want my family or friends to see my device and see a large image of some naked woman across my screen just cause I'm listening to some 'Girl in Red'.

    As well as that, it just ruins the whole lockscreen UI. Effort has gone in to showing notifications in a precise and organized manner, with 'At A Glance', date and time above it. But the blurry image at the back of it all just ruins the entire feel of OOS from the first glance! (Like, if you insist on keeping, and who knows why you would, at least make the image clear and crisp!!)

    But lastly, and this is what annoys me the most about it, this is no longer a native Android thing! Android 11 removed album art on the lockscreen entirely, so at this stage OnePlus has just not bothered to change it over to the default method! Which to me, is ludicrous!

    I've made many reports and suggestions about this over the years, and I know I'm not the only one! But that hasn't gotten far, so now I thought I'd make this thread to see if it can gain some traction to at least bring it to their radar for upcoming updates.

    I'm not asking for a lockscreen revamp OnePlus, I just want no damn album art!

    Let me be less trolly and point out, I do not care if the cover art stays, I want the "it's stuck on the lockscreen even when i'm not playing anything" to be solved

    I 100% agree with this. While taste in music is different and nobody should be judged for their taste, having certain images appear on your lock screen can outright make you jobless. Here's a little best of, just some of the covers that totally don't fit most private spaces, let alone professional encounters like coworkers or even your boss.

    Which one is your favourite??

    Choice 1: The dirty teeth

    Choice 2: The kinda Nazi zombies vibes face mask

    Choice 3: The low quality cropped YouTube thumbnail with the world's funniest late night show host on it

    Choice 4: The man that could be your uncle Ralph

    Choice 5: Uncle Ralph's wife, Margret

    These might violate forum rules - so think about what they can do in more important contexts.

    I couldn't agree more! Media player art on the lockscreen should either be blurred like before or gone altogether. It looks much less professional with the unblurred, low resolution pictures that are being used... Small things like this can really ruin the experience from clean and professional to childish...

    In the past I wanted blurred or a toggle, but now it's a native thing, so they must be like 'No one touch it, we remove this and the whole OS falls apart!'. I don't get why they're so adamant in keeping it and not changing a thing!

    It's interesting that apps like google podcast and pocket cast have an option to turn off the album art cover.

    Actually I really love the cover on my lockscreen while listening to music on Spotify.
    Especially when the album cover is red!
    Why?
    Because the 1 in the Clock is also red!

    That's such an amazing feature 😍
    NOT
