Spotify

I have iDrive 5.0 and do not see the app anywhere nor a way to add it to the car.

Any insight?

Yeh it doesn't work with android, sorry.

I used to be on android and back in 2012 when I ordered my F30 335i I realized everything works better on iPhone and since I pay a lot more for my car I would like to get the experience from my car and made the switch.
I've been happy with the switch

I'm hoping we can just use apks if our devices aren't the chosen ones (probably newer Samsung Galaxys).

Yeah, good point. Sounds like it might be time to root my HTC 10.

Made the same switch from android as well had a note 5. Everything seems to come out first on iOS or exclusive to iOS or its only compatible with iPhone etc. I don't regret it I've had less issues with my phone since I made the switch.

The spotify integration is good, although mine has issues sometimes loading the previous/next song selector on the instrument cluster. Sometimes it will say "loading" then just revert back to whatever was there before.

I will see if I run into the same issue. My setup is a dedicated iPod touch touch that lives in the armrest plugged into the USB port and iDrive 5.0.
