I updated my Spotify yesterday in hope the issue was resolved. No. My
account is a Premium family account. So I don't think it's unrealistic to
want a PAID for service to actually work.

Yes, I've just updated Spotify and IOS to the latest version and the issue with cover art and music name stuck in 1st track remains. All I can do now is hope that some developer that works for Spotify is aware of this issue and that a fix will come in the next update. I've also realised that this issue is not just related to bluetooth streaming but also USB. This really sucks big time!!!! Not sure if this issue is related only to BMWs? I hope this issue affects all car makers so then Spotify will have to fix this soon.

>From other postings in the forum I have seen this happening on most car
models. So it doesn't seem to be limited to BMW. It's all USB connections.
And it is beyond infuriating for a PAID service.

I have updated the BMW Connected drive to the latest version and now the track cover and music info is displayed correctly.  The only issue that remains is the track couting that is messed up. If you are playing the 1st track out of  30 tracks in a playlist, instead of showing 1/30 it shows 6/6 or 843/843 and other non sense info like that, but at least I get the correct art cover and the music name and artist which is the most important. 

So,  if you are still experiencing issues with stuck art cover and track info in your 2015/16 BMW, try to update your car software. It worked for me!!!

Same problem! Spotify Premium in a 2015 BMW 335i. Never been an issue before. Only started after the Spotify update a few weeks ago.

 

Whatever song I play first is locked in on the screen for the entire time I use the app. SUPER frustrating when listening to a playlist and wanting to know what song is on. I now have to pull my phone out while driving which defeats the whole purpose of syncing to the car...

 

PLEASE FIX THIS ASAP! Apple Music (which I hate) displays correctly every time, so I’ve started using it out of frustration & I don’t want to always have to resort to that.

I agree that this super frustrating. All was working well till a few
updates ago. I have Premium service. It should work for a paid service. I
have resorted to Amazon. Amazon works on my car.

What irritates me even more is Spotify not even addressing this issue
exists. And I have seen several posts about this same issue.

Same issue on my BMW F31 from 2014.
I use an IPhone 8 with IOS 13.3.1
Connected Drive is on the latest Version.

I tried reinstalling Spotify several times.
Issue is still remaining!

First I thought no big Deal, SW Bug will be fixed in the next update but nothing happend over Months!
This is really poor Service for paying Customers

I absolutely agree with you. The issue continues. I pay for Spotify. No
recent updates have addressed the issue. I'm beyond frustrated. I have been
using my Amazon account for music. It works!

My Question or Issue

This problem only shows up on the desktop app on my laptop. I updating the cover art and descriptions on all of my playlists last night. On my profile page and on the home page, it shows the updated image, but clicking on the playlist, the image is of the previous one. I have tried reuploading the image MULTIPLE times, I have restarted my computer, I have done a clean reinstall twice, and nothing has worked. How do I get the cover art to stay updated?
