Status: Implemented

It would be great to be able to manage Spotify through BMW iDrive, either by a dedicated Spotify app on BMW system or at least by a connection of iDrive controls with Spotify app on the iPhone.

I am using spotify quite often and would also appreciate an easier use in my BMW. As Aupeo is able to provide an embedded App, it should be even easier for Spotify if Spotify would like to be No. 1 in Aufio Streaming....

Go on. Do it!

Spotify is missing a trick here. This would be the ultimate entertainment system for any car. Even if they don't do this, it would be nice for the steering wheel controls to actually be able to change tracks back and forth without the iPod shutting Spotify down and opening the music transferred in iTunes!
