Spotify bluetooth metadata wrong after first track with Pixel 6 and Android 12

Spotify bluetooth metadata wrong after first track with Pixel 6 and Android 12

Plan: Premium

Country: USA

Device: Google Pixel 6

Operating System: Android 12


I have searched all of the forums and tried literally everything with no avail. I just got my google pixel 6 and when I connect to my 2018 toyota camry bluetooth, all of the track metadata stops after the first track. When I skip tracks, still only the first song's metadata shows, while the other songs play.


I have tried all of the different AVRCP Bluetooth versions (1.3-1.6), restarted phone and they all show the same behavior. Weird thing is that my old Moto G Power (Android 11) that has the same version of spotify and same AVRCP version works flawlessly. I am starting to think it is an issue with spotify and Android 12. 

This is so frustrating! Please help if anyone has solved this issue, again it IS NOT the AVRCP version. I have tried that a million times. Thanks!

Same here with Pixel 4a and Android 12 in a Toyota RAV4. The only solution is to downgrade to some old App version but you miss new functionalities of Spotify. I already followed for months the other "official" topic for this issue but now it is marked as "solved". Unfortunately, not for everybody.

I confirm that this is not a matter of battery optimization nor AVCP versions. It worked properly with my Android 9 One Plus 5t. Please keep investigating the issue. 

What version of spotify are you using? I tried some older versions and cannot get any to work with my Pixel 6.

Agreed, please keep investigating this issue. 


Thats the same version I have. I saw this version posted on a different forum and tried it myself with no luck! Ugh
