I can select the podcast folder in Apple carplay but not in Android Auto??? Seriously?

Its a basic function and listening to podcasts is the only thing you can do during driving!

Please fix this soon.

What I liked about Spotify is the everything in one app solution. This bug is beginning to make me second guess if this is the solution for me. I would recomend Spotify fixes this bug for two resons. 1) this is clearly a bug since it works with Apple Car Play. 2) It further ingrains Spotify's customers with the Spotify experience. From a business perspective, this will lead to more retained customers. 

 

In the meantime, I will use a different app. Hope the other app doesn't compete with Spotify.

Please let the Podcasts access from Android Auto. It should be a no brainer to add that link.

Great idea. I miss this feature nearly every Day, because I mostly listen to podcasts when I am driving

Any news, guys? By the way, Google music has this feature. It's a basic functionality.

Definitely a feature I miss using Spotify on Android Auto.

Yup. This is not an "idea". This is essential and can probably be coded in a day.

 

Thanks!

Also missing this feature and I don't know why this should have been excluded from the android auto spotify app. It makes perfect sense to listen to it from there...
