Sending Metadata via Bluetooth


Recommended Posts

I apologize for posting about something that happened such a long time ago, but I didn't think of asking here until now.

Years ago, when using Poweramp through Bluetooth in my 2011 Mazda 3, the car's display would show album/artist/track title info on screen.

After a certain Android update (Can't remember which at this point), the tags no longer appeared.

I have learned to live with it, but was wondering if there are any settings in Poweramp or in Android itself that would help restore this feature.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Edit: I currently using a Galaxy S9

On "recent" Androids (that is Android 7+), the bluetooth info is sent by system "service" and player apps generally don't do and can't do anything to share that info outside the standard APIs which almost all player apps do. I recommend un-pairing the (car headunit) device and pairing it again, especially if you have major ROM update (e.g. Android 9 -> 10) recently.
