control on lockscreen

On my old Galaxy I used to be able to pause and play from my lock screen. Very important for driving safety. On my new Galaxy with current android OS I cannot do this.
Is the feature still available? How do I set it up?
Thanks!

Lockscreen Control on 6.0/7.0 Devices

In DC's settings verify or enable "Respond to Headset" & "Lock screen buttons" (DC Navigation Menu>Settings>Headset/Lockscreen)

In your device security or lock screen settings in addition to (if available on your device) "secure with fingerprint" also enable "Secure with Pin"

Then in your device app settings (Settings>Apps>All Apps>DoggCatcher) Press "Permissions" if disabled...enable "Phone" & "Storage"

Press back button & press "Notifications" if enabled...disable "Block all" & "Show silently"

Press "On the lock screen" change to "Show all notification content"

success!

Worked...and as a bonus, it works for other apps as well.
Thank you!

You're welcome.

You're welcome.

I also updated the FAQ with info from this post " Lockscreen controls issues on devices running Lollipop 5.0 +, Marshmallow 6.0+ & Up " http://www.doggcatcher.com/node/6624
