I am very proud to see the latest product my team and I have been working on go live, as Spotify will now be offered by BMW within Connected Music in selected European markets for all vehicles produced in or after July 2019 and running the Operating System 7.0.
A big THANKS goes to all of my team for the amazing work we have accomplished together in the past few months and years to make this happen and to our partners at Spotify for the close collaboration, showing once more the values both our companies share : striving to offer the best possible in-car music listening experience.
A seamless and familiar experience, an offer for every customer
BMW having been the first carmaker to launch fully integrated music streaming solutions with its Online Entertainment product along with Napster (since 2014) and Deezer (since 2015), BMW is once more leading the way in offering seamless digital solutions for all its customers by being the first German OEM to offer a deeply integrated Spotify solution and one of the only carmakers worlwide to offer multiple music streaming providers (Deezer, Napster and Spotify) within its Connected Music product in Operating System 7.0 to cater to all customer needs and habits.
With its seamless integration, the new Spotify app will let you listen to your Discover Weekly or Release Radar right from your BMW, without the need to use your smartphone's Bluetooth connection or Apple CarPlay, all data going through the vehicle's built-in LTE connection. Merging your familiar BMW iDrive and Spotify experience at the same time, this new integration will make you feel comfortable immediately !
An integration accross all touchpoints
Spotify is now deeply integrated into BMW's infotainment system, offering all the functionalities you're already familiar with from Spotify on your smartphone. Whether it's discovering new content throughout the day in 'Home', listening to your kids' favorite playlists saved in 'Your Library', listening once more to that album you've listened to at home in 'Recently Played' or browsing for content you like : it's all right there, just below Radio.
Making use of BMW's Intelligent Personal Assistant, you can now also control Spotify simply by speaking with your BMW in a natural way such as :
'Hey BMW, play Old Town Road by Lil Nas X'
Bmw Deezer Support
...and if your rear seat passengers actually want you to listen to their latest discovery : just hand them your smartphone using the same Spotify account as in your vehicle and let them control your soundtrack using Spotify Connect. Whether it's changing the playlist or simply skipping that track they don't like, you can enjoy sheer driving pleasure while your friends and family control the soundtrack.
I hope you are at least as excited as I am to experience Spotify in your BMW ! I am sure you are going to love the functionality as much as I do ! Stay tuned for more...
It will soon be easier than ever to stream your favorite music while driving your BMW, as long as you’ve got a late model with iDrive and use one of the selected services. Rather than connecting your phone through Bluetooth, a cable, or wirelessly for Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, the streaming will actually be taking place with the iDrive system. Eliminating the need for a connected device is big benefit here, and the streaming occurs over the car’s data signal. So far, supported streaming services include Spotify, Napster, and Deezer, while there’s no word on Apple Music and others.
Connected Music is part of the Connected Package Professional, which means it’s backwards compatible with BMWs as old as three years. The setup is optimized for iDrive Operating System 7.0 though, which means the full experience is likely reserved for the latest BMW’s with Live Cockpit Professional. Streaming music from your preferred service won’t expend a large amount of data, either. Once a song is played, it’s been saved the iDrive system’s hard drive, meaning entertainment won’t be interrupted if you drive through an area with subpar coverage. An active BMW ConnectedDrive subscription is required.
Music streaming is also integrated with BMW’s Intelligent Personal Assistant (Siri for your car). Want to hear a certain song? All you have to do is ask. The same goes for playback functions and accessing playlists. When viewed in the grander scheme of things, Connected Music is merely the latest example of the growing interconnectedness of the world and how so much in the way of information and entertainment is now at our fingertips.
It’s also a great testament to the flexibility of BMW’s in-car electronic systems. Twenty years ago, the E46 3 Series and E39 5 Series were being shipped with wiring and controls that could someday handle bluetooth calls, while BMW models from nearly a decade ago can still display Spotify album art if fully up-to-date, with everything connected properly. Today, BMW’s infotainment systems continue to explore the cutting edge of automotive technology.

Connected Music has confirmed availability in Europe, but we’re still waiting to for verification of U.S. availability. If it’s not here yet, it probably will be soon.—Alex Tock
