This is happening for me. 


Android 11

Nokia 5.4



The metadata works for the first song or two then never updates again. Has happened in my 2015 Toyota Rav4 and in a 2020 Chevy Suburban 


Bluetooth AVRCP Version 1.5 

MAP 1.3 


I have deleted the app and reinstalled and it fixed it for about an hour then reverted and I have factory reset the phone and it still happens. 


Motorola G6

Android 9





Been pulling my hair out trying to figure out the cause of my artist and song information not changing when it transitions to the next track. Reset my phone, reset both the Bluetooth on my phone and car. Uninstalled and reinstalled spotify. It will work at most for two songs and then freeze. Thought it was my phone but now see it is a problem with many others as well. It would be nice to hear a solution for this.


Android: Motorola Z4 (Android Version 10)

Car: 2020 Volkswagen Jetta 

Spotify Version:

My car's metadata won't update when I'm playing music. It used to though.


Phone: Google Pixel 6 Pro 

Android 12



MAP 1.2

Car: 2010 Toyota Auris with TNS510 media/nav system








Ulefone Power Armor 13

The metadata (artist, name of song etc.) is not transmitted from Spotify to the car's multimedia system.
