I only use google. Never used any of the other players.

Default Not anymore

I used to be able to control Google Play Music from the media controller however, after a firmware update at the end of Jan it no longer works. If I try to skip track it opens the Samsung music player and starts playing that. Annoying as this was one of the functions I really wanted, skip tracks whilst walking without having to dig your device out.
