My Question or Issue

When i connect my mobile to my car system with android car via bluetooth, just very rarely it works well. More often songs stop after 9 or 10 seconds and it's impossible to search for songs or artists. 

The app works well when it isn't connected to android car.

Hi @Bruman79, thanks for writing!


My first suggestion is that you check the following: 

  • There’s no obstacle in the way of the Bluetooth communication. If a device is in a case, you may need to remove it.
  • Turn off the Bluetooth function of other nearby Bluetooth devices. 
  • If you’re using headphones set with a noise canceling function, turn the noise canceling function off.
  • Close Spotify while establishing the connection.
  • Close any other apps you’re not using. 

Once you’ve checked the above, try restarting the connection:

  1. Turn off the Bluetooth on your speaker.
  2. With the Bluetooth settings on your mobile switched on, delete the information of the speaker.
    Tip: The setting to delete is often called Forget.
  3. Turn Bluetooth off and back on for your mobile.
  4. Turn the Bluetooth on your speaker back on.
  5. Allow approximately 20 seconds for your mobile to detect your speaker. Once it appears, select it to pair. 
  6. Open Spotify and play something. The sound should now come from your speaker.   

Depending on your speaker, you may need to select it as the default for the device you’re playing from or configure the connection to allow media sharing. Try looking for those options in the Bluetooth settings for the device you’re playing from.
