Carplay Search Function

Carplay Search Function

Hi,

 

I've just installed the new Pioneer SPH-DA120 which comes with Apple Carplay built in, and when I use Spotify there is no search function - I only seem to be able to access 'My Music'. Spotify doesn't seem to work with SIri so I am also unable to search with voice commands.

I'm running the latest version of Spotify on an iPhone 5s running iOS 8.1.

Is this feature missing due to a bug or is it not going to be included? Not having it there defeats the whole object of having Spotify!

 

Thanks in advance for any help offered!

Does anyone have any information about this?

Apple Carplay does not support search for any 3rd party app (neither via Siri nor a search option/text input on the car radio screen). Until these capabilities are added to CarPlay, no 3rd party apps will support search.

Google apps for iOS such as Waze and Google Maps provide a microphone icon that allows voice search. It's not Siri, but it works well. Any idea if Spotify is working on such a feature for CarPlay?
