gracias por el comentario pero no fue para mí una solución en una ocasión le di formato a mi teléfono y si se podía ver la info pero después ya no no sé si alguna actualización borra esos datos de las canciones



Experiencing an issue with metadata in my Lexus GS 2017 model with both phones:


Samsung Galaxy S10+ - Android Ver.9 - Spotify:

Samsung Galaxy Note 10+ 5G - Android Ver.9 - Spotify:


Metadata only updates when "Next Track" is selected through the vehicle control buttons, otherwise if the song finishes and another starts playing, the track metadata stays exactly the same.


I have the same issue with my Mitsubishi Outlander (2014). It has NEVER worked. I even had the Bluetooth software updated at my Mitsubishi dealer recently, and it's still the same. It doesn't work with my current Andoroid phone, nor with my previous phone. When I start to play, the first song's details appear, and then it sticks - the song title/artst info does not change when subsequent songs play.

Phone: Huawei Honor 9 Lite (LLD-L31)   (also my previous Samsung Galaxy S4 mini)

Android Version 9

Spotify version


BMW F36 2014

Xiaomi Mi 9

MIUI Global 10.2.13




I have been struggling with this for months now.

No solution anywhere, just questions and posts from 2012.


2017 Opel Astra K - Navi 900 IntelliLink 2.5

Nokia 6.1 on Android 10

Spotify version

AVRCP 1.3 through 1.6 tested (1.4 was device's default)


I'm never able to browse my music. Controlling Spotify stops working occasionally. Sometimes skip and previous song buttons won't work, sometimes pause won't work. Only thing working well is displaying of song information.


Hier sinds kort ook hetzelfde probleem.


Ik gebruik Spotify versie in combinatie met een bluetooth verbinding met:  

- Samsung S10+ (model SM-G975F - Android versie 10)

- Nisssan Quasqai 2017

- Bose Mini SoundLink 


Ik zou graag horen of hier een oplossing voor is !!


OnePlus 6T build ONEPLUS A6013_41_210121 running Android version 10 connected via BT to Mini Cooper F56

Track name and other info like track time stops getting updated a few seconds after first connection.



I've given up. I've had this probelm with my car and Spotify for about 6 years now, the comments here are ignored, we are all wasting our time. In addition, I think Bluetooth is the most flakey technology ever invented. Nothing ever works properly over Bluetooth, not without a load of faff trying to connect, reconnect, losing pairing, breaking up, etc etc , and it's always so much trouble to get it set up (Is this just me ?). I'm signing out of this pointless discussion - pointless because Spotify can't even have the courtesy to respond to all these issues, let alone actually act to fix what is a totally fundamental issue which so many people are clearly experiencing.

I agree. They simply don´t care and Im also unsubscribing.

Or maybe we look for other streaming service and leave spotify. Perhaps it´s the solution they want us to look for.
