My Question or Issue
As of Android Auto's 11/29 update, I can no longer control Spotify through Android Auto (A.A.) in offline mode. If I initiate it on my phone, either before or after plugging into my car (thereby opening A.A.), my car will play music from my library. Although the music will play in offline mode, the A.A. app will not recognize that Spotify is doing anything (i.e. it does not show up on the AA homescreen, nor can I skip forward or back tracks). When I manually open the Spotify app via AA, it shows only a "Spotify is currently in offline mode" message.
