Spotify Album Art

I connect through bluetooth to Spotify on my phone. Every other car I have, the album art appears on displays but not on my 330i. Do I not have something set right?

I also use Spotify with my phone and bluetooth, and album artwork normally shows up. On occasion the artwork is not there when I first start the car. My solution was switching to radio, and then back to phone on the IDrive screen. Then the artwork appears.

I have experienced artwork issues between my iOS device and the I Drive system, whether using Bluetooth or USB. My BMW dealer says it's just what it is.

Just go to dealership and ask for a software update. Maybe this will help

Works fine but can take some time if cell coverage is low.

Im reviving this to say that I have never got the Album art to show up on my car. I ruled out a connection or bandwidth problem. Ive looked in Spotify in the setting. Ive checked the car settings. Everything seems to be set but I have never seen album art displayed.

Anyone know of anything else that I can check?

Not sure why you are having problems. I get Spotify via the cars sim card or via my iPhone. The album art works fine using either method and can be displayed on the Idrive screen, instrument cluster and the heads up display. I would go to your dealer and ask them to sort it.
