Shows the currently playing track, album, and artist on the DashClock Widget

NOTE: DashClock does not allow me to add buttons to the listing, so until support for that is added I will not be able to add play controls. Go to the settings to set what music player opens when you press the dashclock entry. Your player cannot be autodetected so it must be manually configured.

Works with most music players. If your player does not work, try the suggestions below. If it still doesnt work then your player is not compatible because it does not broadcast out what its playing.

Android 4.4+: Enable the Notification Listener setting to support any player that also supports the android lockscreen music controls.

Android 4.3 and earlier: If your player has last.fm scrobbling support, enable that. If not, look for a setting to broadcast metadata and enable that.

App ChangeLog

  • 2.2:
    -Fixed crash setting the default player
    -Updated target sdk to 21 (Android 5.0)
    Note: If the notification listener is not working, you might have to remove and readd the extension from being displayed in dashclock in order to start getting updates.
    Also if you are running 4.3 do not enable the notification listener. It only works on 4.4 and higher but google does not provide a way to hide it in 4.3

    Works well with Amazon music. Just perfect for what I need.

  2. Amelia A.-avatar

    Perfecto. 👩🏻‍🍳👌🏻

  3. Julio Zometa-avatar

    It works as a music player shortcut. The idea of a widget is to add functionality without entering the app. Add music controls to improve the experience. Thanks!

  5. Angus Graham-avatar

    I thought Spotify didn't work, but it turns out if you choose "Dream Now" to get a preview of the dream, it won't show up at first, but after the track changes the first time it works.

  6. Donald Gerrick-avatar

    Not worth having when it crashes 30+ times in an hour, very annoying. @gonemad ~ Samsung Galaxy S5 with Android L 5 OS tmo

  7. Nik Reiman-avatar

    Contrary to what other reviews say, Spotify works fine. However, one must make sure that "Device Broadcast Status" is enabled in the preferences.

  8. Jonathan Goode-avatar

    Works great with Sonos but would be nice to be able to have a placeholder type for showing the filename (possibly without the file extension) as well as ID3 tag info which is already supported

    ...just make sure you turn on the Enable Notification Listener option.

    In order to get this to with properly with gone mad's lock screen widget turned off, you have to turn off the Dash Clock Music Listener and turn on Gone Mad's meta data broadcast setting. Then things should work!

  20. Caleb Kojo-avatar

    This works as expected. I use it with Spotify and it works just fine. I especially like the lock screen art, looks real good. Controls work too. I think a lot of negative reviews are due to the lack of understanding of how the extension works. It also works with the cloud player (for SoundCloud).

  21. Ian Huey-avatar

    EDIT: Uninstalling and reinstalling the extension fixed the issue. Even restarted the phone after uninstall for good measure. Same settings including the 4.4 broadcast options are checked. Either way, glad it's working! Previous issue: I have the extension set for google play music, but the extension doesn't update song info upon change. When the song finishes it remains stuck on a song and pressing it just opens Google play music. Removing and re-adding the extension doesn't help.

  22. Andrew Swanson-avatar

    I love it, will rate at 5 with one simple addition. For the shortcut, can it be turned off/made null?

  23. Robert Johnson-avatar

    (I was mistaken. Crashes were due to enabling Notification access in 4.3; took that as not functioning at all.)

  24. Eli K-avatar

    It doesn't work! I have it setup on my dashclock and the setting are all toggled correctly but nothing shows up!

  25. Jesse Nauman-avatar

    Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but it works with the stock music player.

    im liking it so far though i want the cover art to show in the lock screen too. How do i do that?

  46. Conner Cannon-avatar

    This gets five stars just because the music displayed in the pictures are freaking awesome. (And the app works) Metal on my friend

  47. Jessie Kong-avatar

    Yeah. The title says it all

  48. Eric Pereira-avatar

    The extension works really well with the stock Music Player and Google Play Music. Is there a way to make the extension work with MediaMonkey?

  49. Eric Amerling-avatar

    Faulty app functionality

  50. rummimper flow-avatar

    you guys the man

  51. A Google user-avatar

    Works great, but would be nice if it would launch to the app the song is coming from, kind of frustrating this doesn't seem to be supported. ie, make the shortcut be Poweramp or Spotify or Pandora depending.

  52. Keith Cutter-avatar

    How u get full screen music artwork on the lockscreen? Is it a kitkat feature only? I have jellybean

  53. Kevin Kipp-avatar

    This app updates the current song faster than the stock Nexus lock screen. W00t!

  54. Carlos Rivera-avatar

    Lately after I stop a track it disappears like it's supposed to only to come back about 2 minutes later even though no song is playing

  55. Cecil Thomas-avatar

    Haven't been able to display information other than album and artist name even after following all instructions. But still usable.

  56. Łukasz Zdunek-avatar

    Would be cool if there would be music control, but read the description for it :-)

  57. Dan Ellis-avatar

    Deezer works soon as you press play

  58. A Google user-avatar

    SoundCloud, please.

  59. Ruchir Mehta-avatar

    Even after hours of stopping the music, the extension stays there. I just hoped that the timeout actually worked for me. Well 1 star just for the prompt reply. I had show when paused disabled. I enabled it and set the time to 5 minutes. It works perfectly. Kudos to the developer.

  60. John DeLong-avatar

    I like it a lot I would love to have music control as well. But if you can't get it I understand.

  61. Andy's Take-avatar

    I like it, but a big flaw is that it won't recognize the music I'm playing with my Walkman app on my Sony Xperia Z1.

  62. Joe Marino-avatar

    Although I experienced some problems with Spotify broadcasting at first, everything appears to be working perfectly now! Great extension

  63. Michael Rasalan-avatar

    Michael Rasalan


    After fixing Spotify compatibility, I can now say that it deserves its five stars. Well done!

  64. Emmanuel Torres-avatar

    While dont exactly control the player from the extension, it provides basic info, eye candy for certain audiophiles ;)

  65. kyle wiebe-avatar

    Works great.... Would like to be able to set it to not time out when paused though.

  66. Alex Lee-avatar

    Looks good on my dashclock, but is there Pandora support for this?

  67. Andy Wright-avatar


  68. Michael M-avatar

    The app works great. Probably my favorite dashclock add-on. I emailed the developer with some questions and he got back to me right away. So you know they have our best interests in heart. I definitely recommend everyone download this

  69. Gus Serrano-avatar

    For the record, I'm using this with Spotify. There's clearly a setting to remove the notification when music isn't playing, but it doesn't work--it remains there even when Spotify is closed, showing the info of the last played song. Other than that, it would be better with some improvements... Such as showing album art, and definitely having a pause/play/next/previous button. Right now, it only serves to show what's playing, which isn't very useful--especially when it doesn't actually work.

  70. Peter Hauler-avatar

    I'd love to see the play/pause detection added for Spotify. If that was fixed it would be 5/5 stars, as I know the ability to add music controls is not up to you, but to dashclock. Good job otherwise!

  71. Mike Lonsdale-avatar

    The description says it may not work but if you allow accessibly to the app, it shows the album art, with full playback control. Works well if a little laggy at times.

  72. Kevin Cutsforth-avatar

    Kevin Cutsforth


    Does exactly what it says, but is it possible to add the ability so that tapping the info opens up the currently playing app and not just a constant preset? For example, I have it set for the music app but when I play a podcast and tap the notification it'll open the music app instead of the currently playing podcast app.

  73. Beatrice Brown-avatar

    It doesn't matter it works now thanks for fast reply :)

  74. Ben Smith-avatar

    I know you have stated that it is hard to actually get playback controls, but it eliminates the point of the app, although good start

  75. Fredrik Warme-avatar

    I can't resolve the issue

  76. Kadin H-avatar

    Awesome addition to main app but Rocket Music Player support would give it another star :) Edit: 5 stars!

  77. A Google user-avatar

    Not bad, but it doesn't work with vlc. Enjoying though using Google play music

  78. A Google user-avatar

    Reset all my default apps then I choose a default music player. Reset my phone then the extension recognized my music player

  79. Maulik Patel-avatar

    Instead of current song it shows previous song played on default player.

  80. Nabil Laraki-avatar

    Excellent extension, would be even better if you could add SoundCloud !

  81. A Google user-avatar

    Works well with Google Play Music

  82. Maiya Thompson-avatar

    Just what I needed! Shortcut awesome. Cheers.

  83. George Langridge-avatar

    This is great but without rocket player support its nearly useless to me

    Please add support for soundcloud. Great app so far

  89. Adam Orlans-avatar

    After updating shazam the extension won't recognize the app. Anyway to fix it or does this app need to be updated?

  90. sidhant pratik-avatar

    The app is not compatible with walkman music app of Sony xperia zl

  91. Mitchell Wills-avatar

    But I would really love amazon mp3 support

    Please be open to tell us that why an app collecting information about entered text in text boxes? If you won't provide info about it then I will recommend to all of the user to uninatall the this application.

  93. Alex Yang-avatar

    quick request though, is there a way we can get a few options for different images on the lockscreen? the triangle is rather uninspiring. if you could have a version with a music note or something that would be greatly appreciated but in the meantime, awesome work!

  94. Josh Woolard-avatar

    I have dashclock set in day dream. I always turn on google play music when I go to bed. The widget will display the song for a while, but then the clock will fade to save the screen, and it will be gone. Or the track will change and the same. Everything is set correctly. Would be glad to rate five stars if this could be resolved.

  95. Elliott Webb-avatar

    This is good, as it shows what song is playing, who the artist is and what album it comes from, but the only problem I have with it is that even after I've cleared my queue the dialogue still appears on the widget showing the previous song that was playing. It gets annoying as it can stay there until I replay a song to refresh it but that doesn't always work. I'm using Google Play Music too. I hope this can be fixed in a future update and I'll give it 5 stars.

  96. JR Mora-avatar

    App works great...but is there any way to implement Pandora's thumbs up or down so that I don't have to unlock my phone and go into Pandora to rate a song.

  97. Jesse S-avatar

    Getting a warning about this extension being able to collect everything I type except for passwords, but everything else including CREDIT CARD INFO! Is there a reason for this? Btw looks like this app has great support.

  98. Chathuranga Bandara-avatar

    Chathuranga Bandara


    This is a cool extension, but if it has to play previous and next track its perfect solution.
