BMW Connected Bug since Spotify 4.0 update

Status: Closed

Since updating to Spotify BMW Connected Drive Menu dont' show the "More Apps" menu when Spotify App is running.

With other apps running, "More Apps" menu is shown in the BMW Connected Drive Menu to switch to other available Apps.

I have this on iPhone4s iOS 9.0.1 and on iPad Air2 iOS 8.4.

Car is BMW E91 / 320D with CIC Professional Navi System. This iDrive system has been used by BMW from 2010-2012.






With Spotify 3.9 both devices have been running ok, so it' not related to iOS update but due to Spotify update:




Other BMW connected apps are working ok.



New update brought the menu back, confirmed.

but the update brought a *gasp* white Spotify logo!


all you need now is a search function and you have a great app!


Can someone else please also confirm if this is fixed?


The menu appeared again with the 4.3 version, however the menu now shows all apps which could be theoretically installed, also those which are not installed.


Up until 3.9 version, only the apps which are installed on the iOS device have been given as an choice in the menu.


I'm not shure if this new behaviour is a "bug" or a "feature" - when you try to choose an app which is not installed the iDrive screen shows a info message that the app could not be started because it's not installed and that it can be installed from the app store.


So probably a "feature", but the Spotify app is the only app showing this new behaviour. 

All other apps show only available apps as a choice, which gives a much cleaner interface and user experience in my opinion, leading to less driver distraction trying to switch to another app.


As already reported, the Spotify logo is now ugly white once the Spotify app is started.
