Spotify BMW

Spotify BMW

I own a 2015 BMW and I use the spotify app on my phone and it plays through bluetooth streaming audio in my car. I recently Upgraded my phone software to Marshmallow from Lollipop.

But now I cant switch songs using the control on the steering wheel. It use to give me the option to skip back or to skip forward. Now it just shows the song title. Every time I push the enter button on the steering wheel, it selects the song again and then opens up the search function in the spotify App on my phone. It never use to do any of that.

So I connected my friends iPhone with bluetooth and ran Spotify. With his phone connected everything works. It shows the skip back and forward buttons and I am able to use the steering wheel controls. It even shows the cover art of the artist on the screen of the car.

How do I get my phone or the spotify app to work properly? Everything was fine on lollilop. Please help.

Which system do you have? Standard or Professional?

I have a 2015 (65 Plate) 4 series with the Professional Media and can use the steering wheel controls just fine.

Are you using a Samsung device at all??? I suspect it may be and you should read the thread here:
