Just installed on my S7 Edge; Followed the instructions - even rebooted the phone, but i cannot find the feed on my feed menu;
I have activated the feed on - (Advanced) Notification access-> *Enable* MusicPlayer Cocktail Feed;

Any thoughts?
Same here. Checked the instructions, and enabled the feed, but doesn't show in the edge feeds.
I also keep getting a message saying "Cocktailbar service, a new version is available" It has two options, cancel, and OK. When I click on OK, it says no apps can perform this function.
Any ideas?

Exynos version, stock, unrooted.

maybe take a look at galaxy apps if there is an update for the sidescreen.

Any updates for S7 edge? I wanna try out on it. The current one is not working even if I updated the edge screen from "Galaxy Apps"

P.S. I followed all the steps as well.

Update: It worked after few reboots. Thanks Trail :)

It crashes for me, S7 edge. Please do let me know what other things you did after installing it.

Did you follow this step after installing?

You MUST do this before the Feed will work! Go to Settings->Lock screen and security->Other security settings->(Advanced) Notification access-> *Enable* MusicPlayer Cocktail Feed

Confirmed working on s7 edge with ported sony walkman app and spotify. Also, there is a not so important issue of forward and rewind buttons showing horizontally , opposite of the OP post. Also, @trailblazer101 will please modify or make an app that will show the notifications for selected apps on the edge feed. Samsung stock only shows the phone and the messages on the edge feed :D

    So odd, I can't see the feed. I have the notification enabled and I've rebooted. Tried both Play Music and Tidal. I'll keep messing with it but just odd that still not working.

    You enabled it in settings->edge screen -> information stream->manage feeds?

    The feed works well. Took a little before the song info showed. Tried with stock TouchWiz player and Google Play Music.

    Yay for more uses of the edge!

    Great work man, you're on fire. Keep it upy

    This is amazing! Doesn't work well with Pandora when pausing the music though. The Pandora apps stop the media service and you have to unlock the phone to start it up again.

    Thanks everyone! And I have encountered that problem with Pandora also, and have come up with a fix/workaround. Technically it's Pandora's fault--it stops sending data after paused, even when unpaused... Other app developers have reported the same behavior.
