No Playlist Info over Bluetooth [#14988]

Post by Clorstow » Thu Jul 26, 2018 5:15 am

I have synced via USB/MTP to my Android phone. If i play the synced playlist via a app like "Samsung Music" and are connected to my car via Bluetooth, i can see the whole playlist, with all title in the display of my car. With this, i can jump to a specific track in the list with the buttons available in the car. However, when i play the same playlist with MMA, it displays only the title of the currently playing track, i see not the entire list. I can only jump to the next or previous track and the title of next/previous isn't displayed in the display of the car.

Is there any way to see the whole playlist?

If i understand it correctly, the last beta from the play store includes the above changes, but I'm not really sure. I have tested this today and must report that it seems to not work. I have also changed, after a first try with default settings, in android developer options, AVCRP to 1.6, but that doesn't change the behavior.

I use a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Oreo.

Is there anything else I can do?

If MMA is in v1.3.3.0825 then it should work. If you are using this version and this feature still not work, then there must be some other issue on the OS side. "Samsung Music" can have some privileges. To confirm it you can check whether it works with "Google Music".

Hi there. I have checked again. MMA is on version 1.3.3.0825. On both Google Music and Samsung Music, i get the whole playlist with all titles displayed in the car audio display. But not with MMA. There is only the next and previous buttons visible. I have made photos for both apps.

Maybe, i didn't understand how to play a playlist in MMA. After sync a Auto-Playlist from MMW, i click "Playlists" in the MMA startscreen. Now i longpress the synced playlist and choose the first option on the bottom of the screen, where I put it to the start/first position. Then i click "play".

I can confirm the same issue with Samsung s8 and Android 8.0.0 with the latest beta.
With Google music song informations are transferred correctly.

With my Samsung s5 Android 6.0 and latest beta all song informations are transferred correctly.

Seems to be an Android 8 issue?

All titles displayed in the car audio display are from track queue, which was already supported on MMA in the earlier version than 1.3.2.823.

In 1.3.2.823 was added browsing by albums/genres/Artists/Playlists for those BT devices, which support it.

I really don't know what causes the difference between Google Music and MMA, but all requirements to support it are already implemented.
I have tested it with AndroidAuto and it works, with BT device it should be same. Maybe some Samsung restriction/bug with Oreo system.
Do you have any other device for testing?

I havent installed AndroidAuto. Only MMA. I have tested this also on a Huwaei P8 Lite (2017) device with the same result. This device is also on Oreo.

Today I have checked again with the Huawei device, since last night, I get a software update. I can confirm that with the Huawei device the playlist is indeed displayed at the car audio. So it seems to be a device or manufacturer specific problem. I have no idea how this could be fixed. Maybe other developers have a similar problem solved so far.

Doesn't seem to be working for me on a OnePlus 6 either.

I get Playlist, Artists, Albums etc. listed (which I didn't get before) but pressing any of these does nothing. Seems to work fine with Google Play Music.
