Android 7 update bluetooth progress bar

Status: Fixed
After updating my nexus 5x to android 7.0 the track progress bar in my car (mazda 3 2015) via blue tooth stopped working. The total track time is displayed but no track progress is indicated, either by the time lapsed or progress bar.

Hey guys!


It's awesome that everything's working now! The latest Android update fixed this up.


Don't hesitate to give us a shout if you ever need us again.



Status changed to: Fixed

Hey @chultink, welcome to the Community!


Can you let us know if you're using a beta version of the operating system on your Nexus device?

Not a beta version as far as I can tell. It was an auto update.

Thanks, @chultink!


Can you let us know exactly the version of Spotify you're using? Also, can you try to unpair (via Bluetooth) your phone from your car's audio system and then pair them again?


Let us know if that makes any difference 🙂 


Hey @chultink,


Do you still need us to lend a hand? If so, can you let us know if what @Alejandar suggested helped at all?


We're here, and always happy to see what we can suggest.


Have a lovely day 🙂


Thanks. I tried unpairing it but no difference. I am using spotify version arm v7.



I am having this same issue. After Android 7.0 Nougat Official Release on my Nexus 6P, I'm not able to see the progress bar anymore on BT in my Mazda 3 car. I can see the track duration but no progress bar. On previous Developer Preview 7.0 and Marshmallow it worked correctly, but after official 7.0 release the progress bar stopped working.


Spotify Version:

Android Version: 7.0 Nougat Oct Security Patch (NBD90X)

Phone: Nexus 6P


Same problem for me. Nexus 6p, Android 7.


Same issue here with Nexus 6, Android 7.0 Nougat (NBD90Z) and 2013 Audi A4 MMI w/ Bluetooth connection.


Instead of showing the current progressing track time, it will show either a track time of 0:00 or the total track time.


Spotify version armV7


Hey guys, thanks for all the information you've provided!


If you have the chance, can you test if the same thing happens from a different device?


If it persists, could you ask a friend or family member to sign into their Spotify account on your device?


Check if it works and keep us updated.




So here are 2 pictures, the first picture is with the Nexus 6P device which has 7.0 Nougat, the 2nd one is with a Samsung Tablet which has 4.4.2 KitKat


Nexus 6P:


Samsung Tablet (Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4)


As you can see, the Nexus 6P doesn't show the progress bar at all or where it is at, while the Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 shows it. The issue started happening after 7.0 Nougat release for the Nexus 6P.


I've tried other accounts in my phone and it's still the same result. I've even unistalled and reinstalled Spotify in my phone and the same issue persists.


Let me know if you need any more information.
