My Question or Issue

 

A couple of days ago when I plug my phone onto the car to load Spotify I keep Getting message on car display saying Spotify offline. I can't use car controls to scroll through library or menu but all other Android auto apps (satnav, phone etc) are all behaving as they should. Have rebooted phone. Searched for software updates for both phone and app. Even deleted Spotify and pre-installed. 

 

Not sure what else to try but it's driving my crazy. I have gone into phone menu/settings/apps/Spotify and force close too. Still doesn't help.

Hello, the exact same thing happened to me. One thing to note is that I noticed the offline message started to appear only after the latest Android Auto app update.

I'm having the exact same problem as well. About a week ago I plugged in my phone and it said I was offline. Now it only works if I am connected to 4g. But that partly defeats the purpose of paying the premium to download music. Plus uses all my data.

Now at the moment even that doesn't work as I am on o2 and with the network down I am having to listen to the radio on my way to work.....urgh.

 

What on earth has happened? Is it spotify or android auto. I have reinstalled both. That didn't work. It is driving me nuts.

Must be a Spotify issue. All other apps on android auto are working fine.

I updated yesterday the Spotify App on Android, but it didn't work furthermore.
