Agree, I'm even thinking of using another service like Deezer when I see this feature is totaly ignored by Spotify team since so long ...
How can it be possible ?

A developer even give them the solution, and still nothing month after.

Here's one more person standing in line frustrated by the fact that this doesn't work. It works fine for iPhone so why not for Android?

And the answer that Spotify officially doesn’t support playback over bluetooth? Well then fix that too, it's already working...

It’s actually quite embarrassing for a company to have a music player for mobile phones in 2013 that not officially supports playback over Bluetooth and send metadata for that music.

 

Ok, Wimp doesn’t send metadata either but they are about the only one except you as far as I know. Hell even MS solved it for Xbox Music in WP8…

 

Feels to me like Spotify has become too big and stopped listening on the requests from the community.

why is this marked as fixed? it's not! that hacked apk isn't even up to date, plus i don't want to install that.

 

here's another fix, until spotify fixes it, that does not require a patched spotify.apk: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showpost.php?p=47330636&postcount=260

 

i really need that for controlling spotify over my pebble 😕

Yeah I can't believe it doesn't support this feature.  AVRCP 1.3 has been around for 7 years and still apps dont support it!

 

At least the modded version was open source and code posted, but it doesn't work on samsung 4.3 devices for some reason :(. 

 

Does that other fix with for you?

I'll try this tonight.
Btw, we need to activate it, and it says it can read everything we wrote with the keyboard, suspicious ... ?

I've tried this now and it works! However I found that when I enable this function the swipe-functionality of my keyboard stops working.

Samsung Galaxy S3 (GT-I9300) with Android 4.1.2

Quite annoying in the long run...
