[Android][Other] Increase bitrate in Android Automotive

Status: Implemented

The playback in Android Automotive (not to be confused with Android Auto) in Polestar 2 is poor due to low bitrate in the Spotify app. Please either increase the hardcoded bitrate in the app or make the bitrate a user configurable setting in the app.

Note that YouTube Music uses higher bitrate and sounds better on Android Automotive. You should rectify your low bitrate on Android Automotive before too many people migrate to YouTube Music.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen.

 

We're happy to announce that an audio quality picker is now available on Android Automotive.

 

Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better, by participating here on the Community.

Agree! Bitrate should be available up to 320 (or even lossless, it´s 2020 after all), I will use other streaming services if this is not an option for Spotify on Android Automotive.
