My Question or Issue


I have been using my Audi music interface (AMI port to lightning cable) to connect my iPhone to my Audi A3 (2014) for a couple of years now. I chose to do this as the quality over Bluetooth is quite noticeable.

 

The AMI interface has been made for iPod so it does look for Apple Music or iTunes files however if you select Spotify before or after you connect it will work fine. I have done this for a while now with no issues. 

Since last week, spotify now does not show next track on my car interface. When it loads up, it shows a now playing playlist of the current track and the previous track. It will not skip to next track as there is no next track on the queue, even though it is on Spotify. Also when skipping tunes (via the phone) the album art, track details or anything doe not update like it used to. What has changed??

 

My spotify updated according to App Store a few days before it started doing this. I am currently on Version 8.5.40.252.

 

Does anyone know how I can get it back to showing the now playing queue and displaying the correct information?

 

PS. The information on the lock screen on the iPhone is correct. It is only incorrect on the Audi screen.

 

Thank you

I'm having the exact same issue on my 2012 Audi. Like you, it started with a Spotify update a few weeks ago. I'm not able to skip forward or see song information past the first loaded song. I've tried every setting in the app to get the playlist to load through the car but no luck.

 

It's very annoying and I hope it's fixed soon.

I am having the exact issue with my BMW IDrive screen. It started two updates ago. Until then it was working fine. No one from Spotify has even addressed this issue on these threads.

Mine is not fixed. There was an update or two. Nothing. Still beyond
annoying that a PAID service isn't working for weeks now.

I‘m facing the same issue since weeks and can‘t skip my tracks forward (but backwards is possible...) also like the others already wrote, the track info on the Display doesn‘t „update“ itself after the first track is played. Only disconnecting and reconnecting solves the issue with the wrong track information - but skipping isn‘t possible (which is a main feature and reason for Spotify Premium). 

Please investigate on this issue... it was working since I bought my car!

If there will be no fix, I will unsubscribe from Spotify Premium. 

Thank you in advance!
