Fix To Hide Android Notification Music Controls
If you don’t use the stock Android music player on your device, you might find the notification controls for the music player useless since the player that you do use cannot hook into these controls.
XDA forum member djmcnz found that the option to turn these controls off in the Music app to be unreliable and decided to fix the issue himself.
