Hi all, I have recently got my Evoque P300e HSE which I love. I was just seeing if anyone knows how to add Spotify to the live apps as I don’t want to keep having to use the app on my phone through Bluetooth. Is it possible to add Spotify or did I need to add the online pack when I was ordering the car?

thanks

John

In don’t think it will be possible to add to the native car software ie it has to run through your phones software either via android auto ‘ Apple CarPlay or via Bluetooth as you do now

Thanks for the update, a bit gutted as I have seen the LR adverts with the native app and wish I added the pack. I know it’s a trivial thing but it would be nice to have.

Manufacturer life cycle .........
  • phase one try to push consumers to use your own software for a large fee and deny them any options.......then realise people would rather buy a £5 phone mount than pay you
  • phase two realise consumers want to use generic software across multiple platforms and not different every time so offer “smartphone” packs but make it an option at a fee and give people a dilemma, £5 car mount or have it “built into the car” :rolleyes:
  • phase three make it your standard platform, concentrate on the mechanicals and leave media software to the professionals :ROFLMAO:

Different marques are at different phases but most at 2 or 3 now

Yes you can add Spotify to live apps and use the SIM card fitted in the car. You need to go to your incontrol account on line and there is a tab to link Spotify Deezer and the RingGo parking app. You just choose to link it to your account. Make sure you have enough data on the car SIM card. You can then choose live as your media input and choose Spotify at that point.

A bit pointless with the free Ubigi 500mb sim. It would last @ 30 minutes 🤣

Yes the issue is the data it would use......I use the free 3 data sim with a 200mb monthly allowance...thats plenty for normal use ie live traffic and nav but would not cover Spotify use ...........better not tell SWMBO about it .........it does mean that if you don’t have the smartphone pack like the OP though that there is an option for Spotify or Deezer use direct from the car.......the difference being what data you use ie via smartphone pack is your phones data allowance not the any sim you have installed in the car ;)

I believe you also have unlimited data for music streaming for the first year of ownership. The free data plan is only a 12 month subscription. You can check which subscriptions you have through the remote app.

I've done this and added Spotify and RingGo on the InControl website but I cant see how to get either working in the car.
Am I missing a step?

You need to go to the connected account app in the car and link to Spotify from there

Ahhh...there in lies the problem...I have a 2017 Evoque.

I was laughing that there would be something so obvious that I would miss it but it makes sense now.

You should have the connected app in the 2017 its in one of the menus when you swipe right from the Home Screen from memory.....it pre dates the newer software so you should have it....ie I remember trying it originally but the apps I could see where pretty useless so I never actually used it ......but that was before I realised on this thread you could actually link Spotify to it :ROFLMAO: .......when (if) you get the updated software and smartphone pack ...when you first plug in a phone it asks you whether you want to use the connected app or Apple CarPlay/android auto

The only thing resembling connected apps I have is a Live button. And all that gives me is
7904

I had expected Spotify to show up in there but it doesn’t and clicking update just tells me it’s up to date. Car has sat connected to WiFi outside running for a good ten minutes to see if it needs to download it but to no avail!
Bloody thing!!
