    Before I updated my Lumia 925 to w10m, I could control the music on groove from the car controls, got the list of albums, artists, songs, playlists and could control everything from there, now I can only see the current song and move to next song or previous ... is anyone experiencing the same? is this a w10m problem? is it Groove?

    On my car (Blue&Me, which is based on Microsoft Auto) I never had Groove music working in 8.1. Since 10 I now have voice for the Satnav, and Groove/Gadgets does launch in the car but nothing plays over Bluetooth. I'm also on a 925.

    Always had voice with the SMS reader though, although I have to enable Cortana in 10.

    I was trying to figure out the system my car has and seems to be "InTouch" I get a list of supported phones and the features that are supported, but found a document from 2013 and 925 is supported but only reads Windows 8.0...

    On my 920, the behavior is the same as you describe after upgrading to W10M and Groove. I can no longer browse by artist or title on my headunit. I have to do it all from the phone. Very disappointing and probably my biggest complaint with this new OS. I hope they fix it soon.

    Cortana is much slower and clunkier responding to voice commands and providing notifications in the car as well. In fact, she appears to have been lobotomized pretty much across the board.

    I have the same problem with my 1520 and Honda Accord. I am not able to see the album, artist or anything in my car display. I am also not able to control the volume or change song using my car controls. I am in windows 10 too. Is there any way to fix this?

    I was never able to do something like that in my 2014 300 with Uconnect. Just next/previous using the steering wheel buttons. What is worse is you can't ask Cortana to play a certain song/artist in w10m anymore. You can tell Cortana to 'play music' however if you were playing a podcast, it lauches that instead. I pretty much have to rollback to 8.1 out of flustration.

    I believe this is an issue with Groove itself. Only the song name shows on my head unit as well. Other apps like Spotify, Slacker, and Pandora show the song, title and album.

    It doesn't help that Groove hasn't been updated in ages either. Did they forget about it? Issues like this need to be addressed ASAP.

    Funny you say this, and Groove gets updated, haven't tested though.

    Are you referring to Cortana, or your car system's built-in messaging? Turning off Cortana's text reading is a setting in Cortana, and has been mentioned in this forum a few times. For your car's system, you may or may not have that ability. I know with my Jeep (uConnect, same as most Dodges) there is no such option, which is a bit of a pity.
    I happen to *like* Cortana's SMS capabilities, but for me the uConnect pops up it's message first, and then a few seconds later Cortana kicks in. The best solution is for W10M's bluetooth implementation to allow me, on a per-paired-device level, to choose which bluetooth profiles I want it to enable. I'm not holding my breath for that, though. :-(

    Not sure it makes any difference what phone one is using? I'm using 925 and it is not working but correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    I'm using a 925 with latest build, and my car is an Alfa Romeo with the Blue&Me system (based on Microsoft Auto).

    Bluetooth SMS reader works fine and always has, HERE or Maps work fine as well since moving to W10M. However, although Gadgets launches and says Groove is available for playback I can't play music from phone to the car.

    Not hugely bothered about this, I have a USB port with a flash drive in it for my music, but suppose it'd be nice if it worked.

    Same issue here.
    Lumia 950XL and Smart 2016.

    With Lumia 930 and Win 8.1 I was able to browse the atrist, genres etc. pages.

    I think it's a Groove issue.

    Not sure of that... but I can't remember how spotify used to work on 8.1... now is like Groove only shows the currently playing song... can someone check how Spotify on 8.1 works?

    At least it's not just me :)

    Two different cars, and since moving to 10, then all head unit control of playlists, tracks has gone - just a very basic ability to play music and everything needs to be selected on the phone. Groove and Spotify doing exactly the same. Was all fine with 8.1.

    With most of my music being streamed via a groove pass or spotify - this is a deal breaker and could see me jump ship unfortunately!

    How can such as basic feature be broken like this????

    In addition, when getting a text the voice reading of it takes for ever when one chooses to Read text, takes about 30 seconds to do so.
