Hey everyone,


Thanks for bringing us your feedback in the Spotify Idea Exchange.


Your suggestion has gathered the votes necessary and your feedback is now reaching the internal teams at Spotify. They're aware of the vote count and popularity of this idea. We'll continue to monitor and check out the comments here, too.


As soon as we have any updates on its status, we'll let you know.


More info on how your feedback reaches Spotify via the Idea Exchange can be found here.


Lack of this feature will prevent me from ever using Spotify for anything other than exclusives. By letting this feature sit unimplemented Spotify is clearly indicating their lack of concern for member satisfaction in this space. I would not be surprised if there is already a pull request to merge in  this feature and for some reason someone is not pushing the button. What a ridiculous thing for Spotify to refuse to implement. And this is obviously a clear refusal. As noted several times in these comments this feature should be trivial to implement. There is obviously a business or political reason Spotify is making the conscious decision to ignore their users in this respect.


Well Apple are now offering a better streaming service so I'm going to find out how it works with Andoid Auto and will likely shift my subscription to that one if it does what I want.


Was pretty surprised that I couldn't see my podcasts in Android Auto. I have to use Google Podcasts until this feature is fixed in Spotify.


came on here specifically to request this as not only is the Podcast option missing from Android Auto it also doesn't show up when browsing library from WearOS 😞


thanks atomhead, I didn't know there was a google podcast.  Just switched over to that for the car.  


Is there an update on the status of this issue?  I am frustrated that I am unable to listen to podcasts on Android Auto using Spotify.  What is the point of having Spotify Premium if you are unable to use it?


I heard that Google Driving Assistant will come this summer and will probably replace Android Auto (

Let's see what happens with the Spotify app on that driving mode of assistant.


any news on that?


Hi all


There appears to be specific Podcast menu in Android Auto now. It uses Google's own program, so no need to use Spotify anymore.

There has always been other options. Doesn't solve the problem of being
able to listen to your music and podcast from one platform.
