My Question or Issue

About two years ago I purchased a Kenwood DDX4018DAB head unit for my car.

For about a year I am not able to control my playlists from this head unit.

Yesterday I updated my DDX4018DAB firmware, which did not resolve the problem, so I found out, that this seems to be a problem with the Spotify App itself. To make sure it's not a problem with my iPhone 11 Pro, I also tried my work phone, the iPhone 6S, with the same result:
I do hear music in my car with both phones but the screen just keeps saying 'Connecting...' and nothing else will happen. That's really bad because I bought the head unit just to control spotify without touching my phone or watch. As I can't downgrade the App like all those Android folks I hope that this issue will be fixed in future App releases or if someone can help me right now with changing some settings, that would be nice.

Thanks.
