Default How to skip to next/previous track on 4.4 while screen is off

Did kitkat 4.4 not introduced the ability to skip to next/previous track while the screen is off and playing music (similiar to PA rom)? Due to some compatibility issues I have reverted back to stock android. Previously had 4.3 before going to PA, and thought they introduced this option in 4.4

Do I need to look for a music player other than the default google one to be able to do that?

Use C Volume Rocker app from play store, it works perfectly with poweramp and also configurable for single-double press.
