Incorrect album art in Android Auto


Recommended Posts

AA ver 6.2.610924-release


Album art is displayed normally in playlist and mini mode. However, other album art is displayed on the Now Playing screen.

Not all files show the wrong album art, but quite a few files cause this problem.

see this video.



Other players, such as JetAudio and Rocket Player, did not see this issue.

Check the options in PA Settings > Album Art. e.g. Always Send, API Compatibility, etc. Is there anything in common about when this issue occurs? Do all of your files contain embedded artwork for example, or in-folder images, or manually-set, or automatically downloaded art?

@sho_OnyIs there a chance the tracks you are seeing this with have more than one embedded image? Many other music player apps (including Android Auto) use the first embedded artwork, but I have found that Poweramp always displays the last one. And at least for now it isn't selectable.
