iPhone X and 2018 VW Polo with CarPlay support
My Question or Issue
I never had this issue before, it started today whilst I was in town getting groceries. After I jumped back into my car I wanted to listen to Spotify again. Like I always do. So I selected the Spotify CarPlay app via the touchscreen of my car, navigated to "Your library" and then tapped onto "Songs, which I like" (or however it is called since the new update).
After I did that, I tapped onto the first song in the list. But then Spotify started to play another song, seemingly random. I then scrolled through the list on the touchscreen in my car, and tapped onto different songs, to see if the problem persists. And yes, the problem is still there. No matter which song I would choose on the touchscreen of my car, Spotify would play some other song.
Shuffle is definitely turned off, that can't be the issue. I then restarted Spotify, my phone and my car. The problem persists. If I search through my Spotify songs on my pc, iPad or iPhone itself, no problems. The song that I tap on is played without problems. But with CarPlay it's not working. It just plays a random song, just like Spotify changed the order of my favorite songs solely for CarPlay.
This is really really frustrating, because if I have to use my phone to select the song that I want to hear, it defeats the purpose of CarPlay, which is a very important feature for me.
The problem started to happen today, never had it beforehand. I hope that you can either fix it, or help me solve it.
