Mini Cooper Steering Wheel Skip Buttons NOT WORKING.

When using Spotify over bluetooth or USB directly with my Mini Cooper the skip buttons on the steering wheel do not work, and on the speedo it says "(Multimedia icon) Not Available". This is the same when i press the OK button on the steering wheel (i am guessing which should pause/play the music).

 

When using the Mini Connected Spotify app, the skip buttons cause the song name to appear on the speedo, but still do not skip the song. When i press the OK button on the steering wheel, nothing happens.

 

Please tell me how to get these skip buttons and OK button to work, as currently I can only use the skip buttons on the central dashboard to change songs and would like to use the skip buttons on the multifunctional steering wheel, as this is what it is designed for. Very disappointed that spotify have not fixed these issues. 

 

Cheers, Joe

I have had this same exact problem for 3 YEARS now. Mini says it's not their fault, Spotify says it's not their fault. However, steering wheel controls WERE WORKING AT ONE POINT until and app update broke them (three years ago). Spotify is too busy and won't figure this out and i personally know at least 15 people at the mini meetup I go to that have cancelled Spotify due to their inaction on this simple problem. Seriously Spotify, FIX THIS!
