ATV 3 shows wrong song info!

When I play music from spotify on my iPad mini over AirPlay, it stops showing new track info on the ATV after a couple of songs.

How come?

Hello!

As russtm states, this is actually somewhat of a known thing. The symptoms are - If you play more than 2 tracks off the same album, the track name on the lockscreen of your device will show the second track. However, if you've got a playlist filled with all sorts of different artists, tracks and albums, you shouldn't run into this.

We're aware this is an issue, and we're looking into a remedy.

This could be for a number of reasons.

 

Does the song play, but it shows the track info of the previous song? If so, please could you make sure that your iPad mini's screen is still turned on when this happens - probably won't make a difference, but you never know ๐Ÿ˜‰

 

I will also try and get someone with a bit more knowledge about iOS and AirPlay to come and have a look ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for the quick reponce.

 

It keeps playing the next song (and sometimes the next 10 songs) without updating the track info on the Apple TV.

 

It's very random when it happens. Normally after 2-3 songs. No matter if the iPad's screen is on or off.

 

It dosent happen with the stock music player on my iPad, so thats why i figure it must be something with spotify.

Thank you!

Common issue I've had on the iphone and iPad for ages can be kind of annoying but not a deal breaker. The applets doesnlt play .ogg formatted music or whatever spotify uses. Therefore I think the iphone has to convert before air playing to something the Apple TV will play.
