Spotify Next/Previous button.
« on: April 24, 2017, 03:03:08 PM »
Hey all,

Having a bit of an issue here. I'm not sure if it's the car or Spotify app.
Anyway, I plug my charging cable and the head unit detects the phone and starts playing music, volume works but nothing else works. I tried the Next/Previous button on both the steering wheel and the head unit itself but neither of them changes track. I did have that problem before but now it seems permanent.
Not sure if it's Spotify update that caused it or something failing in my car.  Oh and the Mute button usually pauses the music on Spotify but now it doesn't do that!


Anyone else having the same problem?

Hey chillerkid,

not sure if I can assist, but can you play Spotify by Bluetooth or it  must be connected via a cable ?

I think I had the same problem as u also ie steering controls not working in sync with Spotify.

Hey, Thanks for the reply.

Mine is the last gen model so the no Bluetooth audio (phone, yes). I use a cable for mine. It looks like that I need Apples MUSIC app and a song so the BLUE&ME is able to register, then I can press play on spotify, It is then I am able to use the controls.

Hey chillerkid, thanks for that. basically, I have a series 3 595, cable connected but nothing. I am running this from a Windows Phone - what APPLE APP have you installed, I may try the same route as you.

Thanks

I dont know if Windows phonewill work. I know it doesn't work on android because I have tried it. I use an aux cable instead :(
I use the APPLE MUSIC app that APPLE made (usually installed when you buy the iPhone)

Update on this, not sure if anyone is having the same problem but I still cant get it to work! Took it to the car dealer, doesn't work on the other 500 but the button works as long as the music files are on the phone and not being streamed. I've tried both Apple Music and Spotify but to no avail. Although, Spotify has worked with the Next/Previous button while I was streaming music so I guess it's temperamental.

Not sure if the new iOS update has caused this.. iOS version is 10.3.3

I had the same problem. Upgrading the app and iOS fixed this
