None of the tricks mentioned in this thread actually solves the problem.
The Play / Music app should not show the Play controls when I close the lid. The app isn't even open.
@Samsung where art thou?
Yep. Nothing works. Yet to receive the new update in Australia - Vodafone. About to buy a new case or for the moment uninstall led view cover app until a new update comes out. @Samsung come on guys. This is getting silly now. You broke something that didn't need fixing in your June security patch level.
This update has really screwed my phone. Android auto is glitching and my messenger notification setting seem to reset when I restart my phone. I'm seriously thinking of going Apple next upgrade.
