Apparently, this is an improvement. Maybe it is if you have any Airplay 2 devices.
Well, i Don't that's why i bought SONOS. This was one of the better features for me on the SONOS system. Can anybody explain to me why this is changed! How can i get it working again? Can i revert back tot SONOS app 8.6? The instruction I've found so far do not help me out.:(
Thanks for any help on this issue!

Here's what you need to do to to get the lock screen controls back if you have one or more AppleTVs on your network (which I suspect is the only Airplay device most people have):
On the AppleTV menu, go to Settings> Airplay> Airplay (toggle to "Off").
Do this on all AppleTVs on your network.
Restart the Sonos app on your phone (just kill and relaunch worked for my, there was no need to go into Sonos settings> Advanced Settings> Restart Controller as others have suggested).
Hey presto - Lockscreen controls are back!
