Issue: Android Auto Spotify track info not updated via Bluetooth (AVRCP) when OS is Android 8.0 Oreo
Spotify by using Android Auto and it works and the first track info is OK, but the track info is stuck there, no updates are send to the Ford SYNC2 car audio or SONY MW600 headset display.
I tried different Android 8 phones and it appears the same issue on Spotify with Android Auto. This issue cannot be reproduced on Google music and TuneIn apps. I do believe this is issue that Spotify needs to resolve. If Spotify does not resolve it, I will use another music provider.
Test Mobile phones: ASUS zenfone3, HTC U11 and Google Pixel2
Test Bluetooth audio devices: Ford SYNC2 SONY car audio and SONY MW600 headset
We're going to close this thread up now.
Rest assured we've passed all of the right info along to our tech team.
We don't have an exact time frame for a fix, however we'd recommend keeping the app, and your operating system up-to-date in the meantime.
