My Question or Issue

The personalized display order of playlists is not reproduced via the Spotify API on the BMW Connected Drive. This display order is correctly displayed by the Carplay function. Have you already encountered the problem? Thanks for the feedback

Hi there,


I've faced a similar issue with the playlist order. Here's a workaround that might help:


Reorder Playlists in Spotify App:

  • Go to your Spotify app on your phone or computer.
  • Manually reorder your playlists in the order you want them to appear.
  • Save the changes and ensure the app syncs properly.

Delete and Re-add Spotify Account on BMW:

  • In your BMW Connected Drive settings, remove your Spotify account.
  • Re-add your Spotify account. This can sometimes force a refresh and correct the order.

Use a Different Playlist Folder:

  • Create a new folder in Spotify and move the playlists into this folder.
  • Sometimes, a fresh folder can trigger the correct order display.

Check Spotify Settings in BMW:

  • In the BMW interface, go to the Spotify settings and look for any options related to playlist sorting or display order. Adjust these settings if available.

Alternative Connection Method:

  • If possible, try using a different connection method like Bluetooth instead of the Spotify API. This might display the order correctly as a temporary solution.

Hope this helps!
