Android Auto no control when offline

Operating System:Android

 

Good morning folks.

 

Every time my mobile phone goes offline (no internet connection) on the road,

I am unable to use any controls (forward to next song, pause or choose a new playlist) via the android auto or the car built in buttons.

 

The playlists are available offline btw.

When the Internet connection comes back... I can use all the functionality again via Android Auto.

 

I have bought the premium version to actually listening to the songs on the road.

Guys... this is a clear bug for me, can you please fix the offline access to the controls for Android auto.

It just happening with a recent Spotify update.

 

Many thanks for your support.

Mario

Hi,

 

Sorry this doesnt really help but mine is the same so I think it must be a problem with the latest spotify update.

Same thing here. If this bug don't get fixed i'll migrate to google play music. When driving is the time i use spotify and that's why i pay it. So if i can't control my offline music while driving via spotify android auto what is the reason to contimue using the services. I still hope that is fixed whithin this month or i'll cancel my premium acc and go to google play music.

Também estou com o mesmo problema, depois da ultima atualização eu perdi todas as funções pelo volante quando o celular está off line, não consigo avançar as musicas, ou avanço pelo celular ou conecto meu celular na internet.

Espero a correção desse bug urgente, porque alem de pagar o premium eles querem exigir da gente pacote de dados, então porque ter o premium ?

I have also been having this problem since the latest update to Spotify on Android Auto.  The playlist I'm listening to is downloaded to my phone.  Really annoying that I can't skip or pause songs because I have no internet connection.  It worked perfectly for me until this latest update.

I have a similar problem.

I can't access my library, even with offline musics.

The message: "No Internet connection available".

 

I'm using Android 9 on Moto X4.

Spotify plan Premium, version 8.4.84.874

Estou tendo o mesmo problema. Essa versão do Spotify nao funciona offline no Android auto. Favor consertar. As versões anteriores não apresentava tal problema acredito ser um equivoco a nova versão ser pior que versões anteriores. Caso não obtiver êxito e o problema persistir irei cancelar minha assinatura.

  • Has this problem finally been solved? It's very frustrating to not be able to change songs. The only solution I came up with is to use my phone to start playing a downloaded playlist while I have wifi. Then as I drive away the playlist keeps playing. There are simply no images and if I leave Android Auto to listen to the radio, for example, I can't go back to the playlist.
