My Question or Issue

When listening to podcast, the controls (play, pause etc) stop working,both on the cara buttons, in the full app view and in the "menu screen" block item


Sometimes parking the car solves it,otger times an infotainment reboot is needed to regaing control, but it rarely last more than 1 or 2 "trips"

I have the Spotify app installed in my Volvo Car OS (Android-based). The app is a (very) stripped down version of the phone app, so when I use it I still have to use the phone (iPhone) to perform some operations (such as opening the album by tapping on the song). This of course only works when the apps on phone and car connect with each other - and that connection is unpredictable and unstable: sometimes connects, sometimes doesn't, sometimes connects and drops, sometimes connects but every operation takes forever (such as about a minute between tapping the song on phone and it starting to play on car). 
Tried reinstalling, logging out/in, etc. 
Anyone with similar experiences, advice?
P.S. I wish I did not have to rely on that connection at all and the car app had all the features. I am guessing that the features are stripped to minimize interactions with it, but the result is the need to use phone anyway.

Having the same issue on my brand new volvo xc60. Latest android and latest version of spotify. New songs not adding to playlist, getting playlist and songs not always working, have to go restart the app to work. I can write an essay about how much is wrong with this app and what can be better. Have starting to use my phone spotify app instead. Please fix and I am willing to work with u to fix and test. of the below information is required. However, the more you provide the easier it will be for us to try and help.
