In the current Version this works already. I would like to add another Idea:



A2DP Bluetooth Audio connection is going to be established.


Current behaviour:

When the BT connection is established, nothing happens.

The user has to start Spotify, select a playlist and a song to start playing.



Automatically resume last at last played position and start playing.



Currently I sit into my car. After about 3 minutes of driving, bluetooth audio connection will be established. Then I have to start playback while driving... which is a bit risky!
