My Question or Issue

I've noticed that spotify does not broadcast metadata (correctly) when the client is connected to a PS4 using the 'Connect to a Device'-function. It works just fine connected to my (android) phone. I've two applications that are reading the spotify metadata: the KDE plasma media widget and spotify-music-videos both exhibit the same behaviour. Playing music on my PC or phone works just find, but connect to a PS4 and all of sudden none of them can find the song metadata. Here are some screenshots, the first one is when playing the song on PC, the second one on PS4
