So i have Spotify on my AVR, PC, Android Mobile, but not in my car. Not a big problem, just connect the phone via bluetooth.
Works like a charm, the only downside, the Song/Album/Artist information is not transmited when using the spotify android app. A quick test with the default android player shows that this works perfectly. I see song/album/artist on the car display.
So please, add this functionality to the android app. (to spare you the search implement A2DP/AVRCP 1.3 :-)

Actually this whole bluetooth scheme is borked. I hope they fix the pause/play function first.
Adding of 1.3 profile support would be nice, BUT most of the car bluetooth solutions doesn't support this. Parrot being one of these. And while doing this, fix the "bug" that sound keeps playing when bt audio disconnects, because (again) most of the cars does not stop/pause playback before turning off car radio.
But kudos anyway

I agree with Rufinus. Play/Pause/Track Control works perfect on my Pioneer Stereo and Android Spotify. But it would be much nicer to get track info on that 7" car stereo display. Shouldn't be THAT hard to code.

@gvoima: on my Volvo S60 its working without any problems. They seem to have some of 1.3 in it, as i can skip tracks via the car's wheel buttons. which according to the wikipedia article is only in 1.3 (and up of course).
one point i find slighty disturbing is it goes to pause as it should when a call comes in, but dont restarts if call is over.

@Gvoima: yes you're right
AVRCP has several versions with significantly increasing functionality:

It would be awesome to have track information such as title and elapsed time sent over bluetooth to my car stereo when I use Bluetooth playback!
I know the iPhone app has got this..

AVRCP 1.3 Bluetooth profile is a absolute must for an mobile music app in 2012. For me this is a feature i really miss, almost all other music apps have this Bluetooth profile by default. Why not Spotify? I don't get it, Spotify seems too lack every cool feature for listening music, but its roots are music...
