My Question or Issue

 Hey all,

 
I tried searching & couldn't find the question/answer (apologies if I missed it).  I keep getting ads on my free Spotify telling me that I can skip unlimited ads now, however when I'm connected via AA there is no skip option.
 
Is this coming soon / Have I set this up wrong?
 
I can do this normally on my Spotify app when not connected via AA, but unable to when connected to AA

Hey @DJWoodsy, welcome to the Community!

 

Sorry to hear about the trouble you're having with this. Do you have any pending firmware updates available for Android Auto? If so, installing them could help.

 

Give it a try and keep us posted on the results.

Hey @SergioDavid,

 

Apologies on the delay.

 

I have ensured all updates have been performed in the phone, app and Head Unit, but still the same.

 

I have also noticed that it happens when connected to the Google Home.  Unsure if they are related but thought I'd let you know.

Hey @DJWoodsy.

 

As this is currently a test, it might not be fully integrated with other devices. However, we'll pass your feedback on to the right team about it.

 

If anything else comes up, just give us a shout.

 

Cheers.
