When signing up for the free trial of premium, I too was expecting to use Ford Sync AppLink support for Spotify on my Samsung S4. I thought it was a no brainer because Spotify was Ford's first AppLink App so it would only make sense. However, I was extremely disappointed. I have cancelled my subscription before I got charged and will continue to use Pandora and Amazon Mp3. I was really considering being a customer too, but that feature was a deal breaker.
I'm sure I won't be the only person to cancel because of the lack of this feature.
I have the same problem. I have a premium subscription:
Problem - In Car, you can hear the music on the mobile phone speaker - offline/downloaded and online. Connect to my Car bluetooth. Playback pauses every few seconds. An occasional work-around is to hit the play button every time it pauses which seems to have an effect on the number of times it continues to pause.
Ford S-max (2 years old) - standard in-car radio which came as factory default.
from a playlist only (downloaded or not downloaded)
Turning phone on and off
Re-bonding telephone to car
ALL FAILED TO MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE.
I use spotify alot in the car - this is making spotify usless to me and am now looking at alternative spotify competitors. This problem is repeatable and consistant but I have no one in spotify support I can turn to!
Thank you for your response, it is appreciated. Unfortunately, this is to do with the Android Operating Systsem on an HTC - please re-read my posting - I would certainly be grateful if you had any ideas still,
@ashleybill1 Bluetooth streaming to a car audio isn't officially supported on android curretly. I'm moving this into a relevant thread in the android section and you should check out this request in ideas.
