I have Spotify Ver 0.7.1.407 and when I stream from the app to my Car's Bluetooth I can't see the TEXT information (Artist name, Album, Song name etc etc).
I must say that the iPhone app has alot better integration with my car and spotify especially.
Also, on the iPhone version if I listened to music via Spotify when I turn on my car and turn on the sound system the defaults songs that are playing is my internal music and not spotify's music (At the iPhone its playing Spotify's music if the app is in the background like here).
Also the Widget doesn't seem to do too much, It's just placed at the springboard W/O any ability to actually play and stop the music unless I physiclly open the APP and start to listen to music via the APP itself, After I have done that I have the ability to use the widget and that is also for a limited time untill once more all of the information disappear from the widget if the APP is closed for a long time..
Is there any solution to these problems?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Created an app to handle this. It works on some phones and not others, with no rhyme or reason (welcome to Android Fragmentation issues). Give it a try and see if it works for you.
The app also will adjust your music stream volume level when spotify is playing music vs not playing music.. If you're having trouble hearing your nav voice when spotify stops playing, this app can adjust it automatically. Just turn down the music volume level.
just remember to turn on "device broadcast status" in the spotify settings and reboot. Use the notification setting in the app to prevent android from killing the app.
if this works for you, feel free to dontate via my donate app, buy me a cup of coffee
