I'm using Samsung S6 for streaming and handsfree calling in my Audi A6 with MMI2 high and Dension Gateway 500S BT http://www.dension.com/automotive/products/car-multimedia-solutions/gateway-500s-bt
All systems has the latest firmware.
I'm using Youtube music, Tuneln Radio and other radio apps, Google Maps, Sygic maps, Glympse.
I'm using Spotify a lot all other places over wifi or bluetooth headphones.
In my car - everything works just fine - until i'm streaming over bluetooth with Spotify (18.104.22.1682 armv7)
If I receive a phone call - or tries to call when Spotify is active - spotify tries to take over the conversation all the time.
Result...either both music and phonecall with really bad quality - or a lot of noise.
To fix this - I have to manually "kill" the spotify services with bluetooth off. (Not a good thing to do in car, so I stop)
Can you please look in to this issue? When using other apps - no problem.
Thanks for all your reports and help regarding this. As we've receieved no recent reports we're going to be marking this thread as "Closed" for now.
If you're having trouble, we'd suggest a full reinstall. This should help to get things back to normal.
if you're still having issues, can you let us know the following;
- Version of Spotify
- Operating System.

Hi @RodrigoPalma . The problem is as initially described and happens when i stream to Dension GW.Spotify can't be paused..when i do - or shift to radio or phone - it starts to play again automaticly - as described. It does not happen with f.ex Tuneln Radio app.

Thanks for the extra info @alovaas!
There was a new version released recently. Can you let us know if after updating the same occurs? We'll see what else to suggest.
Keep us posted.
I tried with newer version: 126.96.36.1995 armv7 - The pause/start problem seems to be okay now - but I need more testing regarding phone conversation takeover.
I'll keep you posted after the weekend
Thanks for the update @alovaas!
If you encounter any more issues with your app, just let us know.
We'll be more that happy to help you out 🙂
The last version - it's impossible to pause or stop from the phone. It starts again after 2 seconds.
Still have to stop/kill the spotify to make it stop.. It's **bleep** and a real safety issue in the car.
We're sorry about that @alovaas, we hope you're driving safe.
Have you tried using a different device? If so, do you have the same issue?
Also, can you give it a try with an AUX cable?
Hope to hear back from you soon.
I'm driving safe without Spotify @Mara_F 😞
Yes I've tried a different android device - same result.
Aux cable is not an option - as it doesn't include microphone for my handsfree.
