Search function for BMW Connected Drive

The new Spotify integration with Connected Drive on BMW works really well! EXCEPT that there is no 'SEARCH' tab so I can only view my saved music and pre-selected genres and playlists. This means you can't search for any artist/album/genre while on the go which limits the usefulness of the app compared with pre-connected drive integration.

Search seems like a no-brainer for the BMW app.  The Rhapsody BMW app has it now, and back before MOG was snapped up by Beats (subsequently snapped up by Apple of course), their app had awesome search functionality - I really really miss MOG's BMW app; it was just about perfect for my usage. In addition to great search (that, unlike Rhapsody's, remembered your past searches), their "artist-based radio" (where you could opt to only hear songs by that artist, or to hear songs "like" songs by that artist ala Pandora) was great too.

Deezer got it in their BMW App, so please get this in asap!

Agree.


Search functionality is a must. Its a pain only to have your previously saved content available in the app.

 

This has to be implemented asap pls!

@Carina Still no search on BMW Spotify... Are you even planning to add it? It has been almost a year since this post.. It is really annoying not to be able to search...

Im also really looking for this search function! Would be very nice to have this in spotify, maybe also the function that you can switch from a current song the Interpret or Album. Thanks!

Dear Spotify support,

 

you have to do something about the search function (ASAP appreciated).

The fact, that you don't even respond to some posts after a couple of months shows, that - apparently - you don't care about this issue.

 

If you don't do anything about that you will get rid of many of your premium users who drive premium cars.

 

Rhapsody/Napster & Deezer:

- Same price, music, streaming quality

- better integration

- search function

- ability to save music on BMW's internal hard drive for offline use

- ability to use BMW's internal internet connection instead of using your cellular data plan

 

If you don't improve Spotify's integration in BMW cars - why should any BMW driver choose Spotify instead of others?

 

Regards

 

Tim

Thans, Tim.

 

You've got valid points made for me to consider quiting Spotify and moving to something else.

I've seen Deezer integrating in a lot of stuff faster then Spotify ever has done (I've got a set-top box from my internetprovider for television and internet and it has a deezer app in it. No spotify -( )

 

Considering the advantage of using the BMW data plan instead of my mobile plan, sound like a good one. Then moving over the border isn't an issue anymore. I often travel to other countries and I would like to take my music with me.

 

I hope Spotify will soon improve their product....
