Hey all, I found a post from Clocktower a little ways back in this thread that helped solve my issue on my Samsung S7...hope it works for you.
- Open Spotify App
- Device Broadcast Status (Turn On)
Please post if this does solve your issue so that others will see this too.
I have been running into this problem too. I have tried everything mentioned in this thread from reinstalling to clearing the cache to the direct broadcast setting. Either the options did nothing or the fix was only temporary. Then I came across something that I have not seen mentioned before.
I am using a Samsung S8 and my car is a 2017 Kia Sportage. To use Android Auto I need to plug in the USB cable. My car will support bluetooth for just the calls or streaming audio but Android Auto requires the cable.
I plug the cable in and when I try to start Spotify I get the "Spotify does not seem to be working right now" message. But, if I turn off bluetooth first and then plug in the cable, it works! Thinking that it had something to do with the bluetooth connecting first, I unparied my phone from the car. Plugged in the cable and Android Auto starts up and Spotify works. But it seems that when you plug in the cable it will automatically pair bluetooth. No idea why. The only difference now is that I did not allow my car to become a trusted device to unlock my phone. So far every time I have plugged in my phone I get Spotify.
So start by turning off your bluetooth if you need to use an USB cable for Android Auto and see if that works.
Thank you for this solution - it works in my Kia with a samsung S6. Given that I only use bluetooth in the car and the phone works with the cable I can sign back up again.
