Could you confirm for us the make and model of your car, as well as whether you're connecting your phone to your car via the Connect feature of via Bluetooth?
Once we have that, we can take a closer look.
Thanks! We'll be looking out for your reply.
Same, been having the issue for a while and it bums me out
Did this ever get resolved for you Michelle?
I'm having the exact same issue..
How frustrating is it! I've had to start skipping songs manually. I thought it was my phone lead at first but that's all functioning normally. My songs have stopped appearing on the dashboard too like yours.. I was hoping it was some software issue with spotify but if it hasn't been resolved in three years I don't have much hope!
As of last week I now have this issue, has been working fine for months, until the App ran an update last week! I am running Spotify on an Android headunit via a WiFi hotspot from my iPhone.
Note:- When playing back from my iPhone via Bluetooth all the steeering wheel controls work fine, (as they do with EVERY other function of the headunit - but Spotify NOPE!)
Skipping tracks backwards/forwards via the wheel controls has gone. Looks like the update needs an update to fix the issue!? 😞
I'm having the same issue. Nothing fixes it. It stopped working around May for me. I can connect via Bluetooth but can't skip any tracks using the controls on my steering wheel. It's sending me bonkers!!
I am also experiencing the exact same issue. It’s very unsafe to have to manually change the song while driving. I also have an iPhone 8 and own a 2018 RAV4. My problem is not with changing via bluetooth( that works fine). It’s using the USB cable. It also will not change song or display the art on my car screen. Very very annoying.
I’ve literally tried everything to contact Spotify about this. Getting the idea they just don’t care about it 😕
if you want to continue use the steering wheel buttons and hard buttons, then, need to install the spotify apk version: 18.104.22.1683 or lower...
i hope that the spotify team will solve this problem...
I also wonder this, I wouldn't even know how to backdate my spotify app on iPhone..
Also, for those of you who have successfully connected your phone via bluetooth and manage to have the skip song buttons working - how did you do it?
Mine sometimes connects via bluetooth when I have a call, but i've never managed to have it work with Spotify 😞
Any help would be appreciated!
