I am having the same issue. Seems to have started with the latest Android Auto update. Other media players are showing album art properly.

Artwork fails in Android Auto

Post by aag » Sat Dec 08, 2018 3:12 pm


After trying a good 6-10 apps, I'm finding MMA the only app even remotely usable with Android Auto. There is room for improvement, but it is heads and shoulders ahead of anyone else -- great job, guys!

Two things bother me:
- No artwork is shown on the car's screen. The music was synced to the phone using MMW, and artwork is visible in the app / on the phone. I've seen screenshots where an artwork is present, so not sure what is it I'm doing that's causing the problem.
- There doesn't seem to be a way to easily use voice control. Sure, something like "Play Jethro Tull's Aqualung with Media Monkey" seems to work, about 50% of a time, with the rest Assistant trying to make "Media Monkey" part of the title, and land me in Google Play Music or YouTube music. But even when it works, I end up on the relevant track, not relevant album.
Is there a plan for MMA to be recognized by Google Assistant as a Music service provider?
