Mercedes Benz A150 (MB Command) no playout

Hi all,

 

I have a 2008 A150 and skype and normal telephone voice calls are fine over bluetooth on my Samsung Galaxy S4 mobile. However Spotify doesn't playout over bluetooth. Is there anything I am missing? Has anyone had this same problem and would they be kind enough to help with a solution?

 

Many thanks in advance

 

 

Happy holidays

This might be a stupid question, but did you pair the device with your car stereo?

And when you go to play a song, does it actually play or does it stay put at 0:00?

It does but not through the stereo. Its almost like the stereo ignores spotify.

After doing a little research it appears as if Bluetooth is not officially supported by Spotify. Some users have reported however, that force closing and re-opening the application works for them but it's pretty hit or miss depending on your setup. Does your phone connect to anything else via Bluetooth?

Yes. Spotify played out via bluetooth in a different car. A 2012 Vw golf.
