Carplay: Podcast does not resume playing after Maps directions


Carplay: Podcast does not resume playing after Maps directions

Casual Listener

Plan: Premium

Country: USA

Device: iPhone X iOS 14

Car: 2020 Honda Civic Hatchback Sport

1. Start navigation using Apple Maps via Siri voice command

2. Start podcast JRE via Carplay touch screen

3. Apple Maps interrupts to give next set of directions

4. Podcast should resume playing, it does not


The Apple Podcasts app will resume playing the podcast after Siri is done giving directions. This is a huge regression in UX since listening to the JRE via the Podcasts app please fix this bug!

having the same issue here and it's not just a single head unit, it's both of our cars multiple phones and multiple headunits, ilx-107 and 2020 subaru outback iphone 11pro and iphone xr, 2 friends also with different headunits and phones also confirm this issue with me. so this is a major bug spotify needs to address, it's app wide specically with podcasts, music still resumes just fine.
