BMW Integration Bring back Playlist Photo and Album Photo

Status: Not Right Now

Hello,

In version 6 and 7 of Spotify with BMW integration, Album Photo and Playlist Photo was displayed while browsing your library. This made it easy to locate your music. For some odd reason this nice feature was removed in version 8 and replaced with Universal thumbnails. This choice reduces driving saftey as it is more difficult to read text than just looking for album / playlist photo while driving and while browing in your library. Please bring it back!

But all this nice detail was removed in version 8. Can you please put this feature back? This will increase the safety while driving. Just imagine how difficult it is for the eye to read all songs / text in a playlist while drive if you are looking for one particular song. It likely that you brain uses less time to locate the song be seeing the Album thumnail than reading text while driving! Please put this feature back! 🙂 I used my old version of Spotify today to create these pictures. Just look back in pervious code of Spotify versions and bring it back!

Thanks for bearing with us @horgster.

 

The right team have been made aware of this, and they're looking into it. We don't have a timeframe for an update, but hopefully we'll have some news soon. 

 

For now, we'd recommend keeping your firmware and Spotify app up-to-date. 

 

Thanks!
