When I connect my iPhone to my stereo via HDMI and Bluetooth (my stereo requires both simultaneously for navigation and other features) the Spotify app enters "docked mode" and simply displays the Spotify logo and I have to control everything from the head unit itself. If I disable Bluetooth the app will work like normal but I need Bluetooth for some other features to work. I don't have this issue in my friend's car when I use Spotify so there must be some way to fix this.
I'm having the same issue which is extremely annoying because my car stereo (Kenwood Unit) does only have a simple display with limited usability functions, so it's almost impossible to browse thru Playlists or search for anything.
Same here, as soon my iPhone is connected thru Bluetooth to the Kenwood-Unit, the App only shows the Spotify-Logo.
We need a setting to disable that whole feature because in some cases (like mine) it makes using Spotify totally impossible
I just bought a Kenwood radio and the same thing happens to me. Its like a overpowring saftey feature for when you get in the car and it sucks. What if im parked and want to change the song? I cant access anything and doing it through the radio is so slow. Please fix this Spotify!
I am having the same problem. Can’t control the app on my phone when connected to the Kenwood deck via Bluetooth in my car. Very difficult to navigate through songs and artists because my display is limited. Renders Spotify app almost useless. Works well with Apple Music app and I am thinking of changing over if it doesn’t get fixed soon. Please fix Spotify because I would like to stay with you.
