Are there plans for Android support? I found a cnet article that says: "Spotify integration for BMW supports both free and subscription accounts. ConnectedDrive integration is currently only available for iOS. Burgner said BMW was working on Android development."
user7628262: I don't know about CIC and iPhone 5S, but I tested this with iPhone 4 and iPhone 6 using NBT. When I was using iPhone 4, it worked OK for about 10 minutes and then it got unresponsive, I had to disconnect the phone to get it working again. But with iPhone 6 it worked great, never had any problems. It was fast and responsive.
Works for me as well .. The only issue I have is album art does not display..I'm using an iPhone 6 plus with IOS 8.1.2 and the latest version of spotify 22.214.171.1244. Mini Connected in car on 1006.bin. If this is not fixed in the next month I'm going to cancel my subscription and go wit Rhapsody it displays album art correctly.

2. Spotify app (latest version) connect using the USB cable
3. Latest version of iDrive with the latest update
Spotify works fine either BT or USB, but I also have the delayed changing of album art. Always works okay but is just slow to change.
My BIG GRIPE and issue is the lack of functionality when listening to an album or playlist. If I want to scroll the songs in the album or playlist that is playing I have to find it again which is pretty stupid.
The functionality already exists in iDrive when using external media or the internal HD to view the current album so why haven't Spotify done the same, it's really irritating!!???
The Mini Connected feature has caused me to stop listening in my car.
It doesn't work well. It's slow, it's klunky, it takes FOREVER for any input made to take effect. It has some serious lag issues - like a full 5 minutes to just fnd one song or album to play before I leave for work. (first world problems, I know). So much so that I don't connect my phone any more.
Please add the ability to turn this feature off. I don't want it to connect to my car. I can't use other apps if it's connected, like oh, maps or something.
It's a million times faster & easier to use the app inteface & not the car interface.
Please please add a disable switch as mentioned above.
If you're going to have stupid integration I will not want to use it. I basically want to plug my phone in to charge from USB, stream spotify over Bluetooth in phone background WHILST using Google maps with voice directions.
Call me old fashioned -o-o- but it works that way for me.
