DashClock Music Extension

DashClock Music Extension


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.

Recent changes:
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

Mediocre 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!

Works great. 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).
