Default Music Controls Not Working (LG G Watch, Nexus 5, Android L Dev Preview)

I've been using the LG G Watch for a while now and I'm really loving it. However, I noticed that the music controls don't seem to work properly.

When I play a track on my Nexus 5 via Google Play, the artwork and title appear on the watch face, but pausing / playing don't work and I can't skip or go back a track, either.

As far as I can see I'm using the latest version of the Google Play Music APK and the watch is running the latest firmware. I've also tried resetting the watch and re-syncing the apps on it.

Another thing to note is that I'm running the Android L Developer Preview - not sure if that makes any difference.

Has anyone else had this issue?

Glad I'm not the only one getting this. Google Music updated today, but the issue is still there.

Same issue here, works on HTC one m8, but not on nexus 5 and 7 running L. I assume its a problem with the way L handles music controls in notifications.

Happens to me with Spotify, the notification shows up but the play/pause control doesn't work. Using a Gear Live with a Nexus 4 running CM 10.2.1 (Android 4.3). However, Spotify works perfectly for a friend using a GS4 running KitKat connected to a LG G watch.

Got mine today, running Android L preview also and having the same issue. Anyone know of a fix/update on its way perhaps?

I do know that persistent/non-cancelable notifications are not mirrored to Wear for ANY app. That's usually the type of notification used to show playback controls, but it doesn't explain why the apps that have been updated don't seem to work correctly.
