Bring back car controls

I would like for Spotify bring back support for car stereos. I have read multiple threads under the IOS forum section, and it seems to be a general problem:

  • Cannot change track/songs via the controls on the radio/steeringwheel.
  • Cannot see song informations on the radio screens.

Though i have found out that people USED to have the support for all of this, but when updating to a newer version of Spotify it stopped working. Last known working version of Spotify was Version 0.5.8.73.

I would very much appreciate of Spotify to look into this, and bring back propper car controls. It wont only make for a great feature, but also save lifes (from people beeing busy changing songs directly on the phones).
