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).

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.
