Issue with AA switching between Spotify and Amazon music by itself. 2 Recommended Answers 383 Replies 393 Upvotes

I've been using Spotify for awhile now and listen to various things including music and podcasts through Spotify. About two months I was driving and my daughter wanted to listen a chirstmas song. So I tapped the microphone on my AA display and said play a certain song. It did on Amazon music and it played the song. Then I switched back to Spotify. Now my AA will switch back to the Christmas song that I played on Amazon music months ago all of sudden in the middle of a Playlist or podcast while I'm on Spotify.  The song won't play on Amazon music but the display will change to that song I requested months ago. I have to manual switch it back to Spotify and then about 10 minutes later it goes back to Amazon music.

I'm using AA in my 2018 Honda Accord.

Hey Cam,
Thanks for reaching out to us. We've forwarded your issue to the rest of the team. We aren't aware of any issues in regards to this specific issue you're experiencing. How often does this issue occur while on the drive? Also, does it only happen when you're on Spotify or does it also happen on other media apps?

I've never tried another media outlet on AA to see if it changes to Amazon Music. I only listen to Spotify while driving. 

On how often does it happen? Well I took a 10 minute drive to the store tonight and it switched to Amazon music while I was listening to a podcast on Spotify. So it happens pretty often.

I've had this issue too, seems like near the 10 minute mark. I don't have any Amazon music, so it just goes dead. I've uninstalled Amazon music with the hope that another option doesn't start taking its place. Pretty disruptive when you're driving though. I had thought that it was related to my head unit, but it's just happened in my wife's car just playing through aux.

I have had the same issue. I will be listening to music using Google play music and after a time (10 minutes sounds about right) android auto switches to prime music.
