Is there a way to make Android display the entire album art on the lock screen? The iPhone does this better in my opinion.

I'm not on the latest so this might have changed but as of right now it only displays part. I'm on a rooted Nexus 5 with Lineage OS. I'll add a picture in a moment.

  • Android shows cropped and full screen version of album art. You cannot change that. But you can use music player's lock screen instead of Android lock screen given that music player has an option. – MANI Apr 29 '17 at 5:28
  • Take Poweramp music player for example. It has it's own lock screen implementation. Try it and you'll understand what I said. – MANI Apr 30 '17 at 4:06
  • @MANI just playing devils advocate here, but technically some could display on the stock screen the entire album art screen if they create a custom image that took into factor the devices width. The custom lock screens I have tried all seem slightly glitchy. – William Feb 19 '18 at 3:39
