same thing for me. Got my new car this January. Spotify integration never really worked (Google Nexus 5x). I am really really disappointed with both Spotify and BMW. I used to drive BMW for quite a long time. BUT .... well, this is not the service i had in mind.
Ahhhh I thought I was alone in this frustrating situation.
bought a bmw a couple of months back , seemed to connect Bluetooth wise initially , then it dropped and no matter what I did it wouldn’t come back , mysteriously reappeared and worked fine for a month , now it’s gone again ...
I have deleted phone , constantly dropped Bluetooth reconnected ... to no avail .. anyone with current idea to get it back ?
I have a BMW with CiC Navi Professional. Spotify with an iPhone 5 via BMW Apps worked great until a few days ago. It will not work after updating the Spotify app. Other apps like TuneIn work. Spotify does not switch to this BMW mode anymore. Unfortunately, I do not know which version was installed before the update, now it is 8.5.16. Does somebody has any idea? Has the support of older BMW systems been discontinued or is there a bug in the current version?
I'm using the Spotify app on my Mini JCW, with a Samsung Galaxy S10+. Everything is working fine except that I'm unable to skip tracks using the steering wheel buttons. I can do it with the radio buttons of the screen buttons but nothing happens using the steering wheel ones, just a message saying "Loading". Does anyone has the same issue with a BMW/MINI?
Simple answer is nothing. No communication from Spotify or BMW on this. What annoys me is that BMW are advertising Spotify integration when they know full well it's not reliable. Their app has something to do with it too, I think. I get the impression that BMW software development are poorly staffed, but other manufacturers are now leaving them behind. There seems to be a poor collaboration between BMW and Spotify.
