When using Spotify on an Android device to play over bluetooth, some third-party devices don't receive metada (track, artist, album info, etc. is not displayed on third-party device)
We're collecting information about which specific devices are not receiving metadata. If your device is affected, please reply and provide as much information as possible.

The metadata dos not display on the screen.

Music plays on my stereo, but no metadata is displayed and the stereo thinks the phone is always stopped. Next/Prev track seem to work, but I have no way of pausing the playback. Other apps I've tested (Google Play Music, Poweramp, Pandora) all work fine.

Metadata works with Google Play Music and also works for Spotify if I have played something with Google Play Music first (except duratation, and playlists). Metadata is not shown if Google Play Music hasn't been used first.

Just came over from iPhone 4s. Everything worked fine there.
Also, was able to use iPhone to stream Spotify directly to Denon DSD-500. Spotify on Android cannot.
Google Play Music shows Metadata correctly, but Spotify never does.
Actual Spotify music quality through the Bluetooth connection is superb! Better than through the Aux In.
And remote controls (FF, RW, ...) work correctly and quickly.
