    Album artwork and song info via Google Music bluetooth audio streaming

    What do I need to do in order to get some nice images up on the CUE screen?

    Using a Galaxy Nexus at the moment, possibly an HTC One in the future

    I also asked about this on XDA, and hopefully have found my answer. Android 4.3 adds support for AVRCP 1.3 which is what's needed for metadata. My phone is still on 4.2.2 but I can hook up my Nexus 7 to find out.

    CUE supports AVRCP 1.4, so hopefully there is backwards compatibility between the two. I'll try it out and report back

    Re: Album artwork and song info via Google Music bluetooth audio streaming

    I have my Nexus 4 with Android 4.3 running. What has changed sine 4.2 is track, artist, album info now shows up with BT streaming, prior to 4.3 it only said Bluetooth Audio. I also tried WP8, BB10 and iPhone 5 (iOS7) None give you album art.
    Only a physically connected (USB) device gives me album art, so I sacrificed an old iphone 3gs and it has 32GB of my library in the car at all times.

    On a side note, BB10 and WP8 (Samsung Ativ S) have integrated nicest with CUE since days one, even contact pictures from phone sync-up.
    Windows phone 8 even reads incoming text messages and I can reply by voice without touching the phone...

    Great info, thanks!

    I wish the USB ports were 1000mA though, to actually be able to charge my phone while streaming

    No. Have no issues with Nexus 4 on 4.3. BT Audio skips one once track change, other than that, no issue. Used built-in player and Rdio BT streaming fine. Maybe you need to remove phone from CUE and pair again?

    Yeah this thing is screwy my Ativ-S no longer works with it...well it works for about a day then it never connects and nothing else can connect until I reboot the cue. (the compartment open door open trick). Cadillac told me it was my phone and to try another phone. SO trying the other half's HTC ONE S. I looked at the list of "approved" devices other than an iphone 5 the list is ancient.

    I have been having problems with my Samsung Ativ S - connects up just fine but after a day or so the car no longer sees it and it will not pair with anyphone - I have to reboot the cue - have you seen this?

    Android 4.1 will play audio over Bluetooth, you just don't get the song info to display on CUE unless you have 4.3. I know because my Galaxy Nexus was 4.2 and only showed "Bluetooth Audio" while playing music. Once I updated the software to 4.3, the song info now appears on the CUE screen.

    The reason for this has to do with the Bluetooth stack version used in Android 4.3 is now version 1.3. Version 1.3 allows the receiver to detect the state of the media player (whether it is playing or stopped) and to receive metadata about the media being played. This means song info displays on CUE. Sadly this doesn't include album artwork though.
