Hi there,

Welcome at the Spotify Community!

 

Have you already tried to put some music on your phone (e.g downloaded somewhere), and to play that in your car with the default music app?

This way we know if it's related to Spotify only, or that it's just a problem with your phone etc.

 

Please let me know!

I've just performed a search at the community for others with the same problem, and I have to disappoint you.

 

You can't use Spotify with USB because of license purposes. 

But you can play your music in the car with an headphone jack (auxillary cable), if you have that type of audio output.

Bluetooth might work aswell.

Correct. USB is a no go as the tracks have to be encrypted for licensing. Best bet is an FC transmitter or aux cable if your heas unit supports aux in

How come Spotify works in my car when hooked up through USB with an iPhone but not with an Android phone? Do songs have different copy rights for iPhone vs Android, I wouldnt think so. 

 

Thanks

What car is it? I know bmw have worked with apple to integrate the iphone into their idrive so it's not a case of Spotify is creating a rift it's more that the car manufacturers are only supporting a singular os.

I was trying to find a solution to my problem and found this post, which reports the exact same issue I have.

 

Had an iPhone which Spotify worked fine through USB. Recently switched to an Android phone and Spotify is a no go, only files copied directly to the phone.

 

Is there any chance of this being solved in a near future?

 

Edit: using it on a FIAT with Blue&Me tech.

Hello there, Drasnop!

 

I might be able to tell you why this won't work on your car stereo-type as USB music-wise.

 

With Iphone and such it does work, because I think they are using another USB form, such like FAT32.

Most other phones works with NTSO32 or something like this.

 

I had this trouble first time trying to play music (downloaded from websites) on my USB Stick and it did not work at all first time.

I went on my computer and changed the USB Stick into FAT32 and then all the music worked very well, even with music maps on it.

 

This was on my Kenwood BT-44 Stereo.

 

As far as I know, if you want to play music on your phone with the USB selection instead of AUX or Bluetooth, I recommend getting an Iphone since it use other settings.

 

Sincerely,

Tobias
