Keyguard widget, like spotify

Hi there

I'm looking into creating an widget operating like the spotify one, showing the user the current music being playing directly on the keyguard.
Reading up on widget I found this on androids developer page:

"The widgetCategory attribute declares whether your App Widget can be displayed on the home screen (home_screen), the lock screen (keyguard), or both. Only Android versions lower than 5.0 support lock-screen widgets. For Android 5.0 and higher, only home_screen is valid."

So I was wondering how spotify did it? Probably missing something big, help would be appreciated.
