Looks like Incontrol is becoming less and less of an option to use for anything. Spotify is going away next week.

Totally makes sense. InControl Apps was a waste of time and resources for a platform that nobody was going to support that was just trying to replicate the established platforms of AA/CarPlay.

Not that it sold me on this car, but InControl Apps was "highlighted" by the dealer. "Look, you can control Spotify from here!" (which you don't really need InControl for, but whatever).

Now, in order to get that same "control" I have to pay $300 for a feature that most cars get for free.

Could be worse, you could have to pay a subscription to keep AA/CP on our infotainment system like on a BMW.

Or you could buy a KIA Telluride, Put 30+k in your pocket, Have AA/ACP "Free" and be able to connect 2 phones concurrently..... Still goes A to B the same way and with all the same features....Jus Sayin....

Yeah, I tried using the in control apps for about a week. That ended about a year ago, and i haven't used it since.

Not a good interface, and the apps are pretty blah.

For those of us with regular ICT this is utter BS, I used to use Spotify through ICT on a daily basis. First they decide to ignore their ICT customer base leaving them in the dark on the Carplay/AA updates, and now to add insult to injury they pull Spotify.

just to note ICT never met the display or other specs for Apple CarPlay and it was clear early on that it would never be capable of supporting it so hard to say Jaguar ignored ICT customers in this area. I was surprised they eventually retroactively implemented it for ICTP which did have the equipment to support it.

Yeah. Now there is no built-in Spotify app anymore and I have given up in control app since then.
Now I use audfree Spotify music converter to transfer my Spotify playlists to the carplay.

CarPlay and Android Auto are better anyway.

I'm now using Tuneskit Spotify Music Converter to download and convert Spotify to MP3, and then transfer to my USB drive for listening in my car.

Damn it. I love Spotify. So the only workable way is to download Spotify playlists to the carplay by my Audkit Spotify recorder to continue listening, right?

Make sure you understand where it has been removed from and see if you still care. It was removed from the jaguar apps that show on your phone when you plug it in. It is still works via "online media" in the car. I am in the US. btw.
