The thread is about Android Auto and the lack of support. Given the support in iDrive for iOS, the posts comparing iDrive to CarPlay are useless, irrelevant, and completely off-topic. There is no similar support for Android in iDrive. Period.

We get Spotify and iHeart integration. That's all. Nothing else and Spotify integration's been broken for months (we have to use an old version of Spotify for it to work). In addition, in Canada, we don't even get that because we don't get the Android Connected app (again, install from .apk to workaround).

Since BMW's strategy of trying to get app makers to integrate their APIs is a complete failure, their decision not to support AA is highly relevant to Android users and completely unforgiveable for 2019.
