    Can you stream Pandora through Bluetooth with an Android phone?

    Recently got a 2012 Passat. I have a Samsung Fascinate Android phone. The Bluetooth works fine for the phone but I can't get it to stream Pandora through it. All that seems to happen is if I hit the pause/play button on the car screen it plays/pauses the music playing through my phone but no music comes out of my car speakers and the line showing how long the song has been playing doesn't move.

    Does this feature work for Android phones or is it just an iPhone thing?

    Thanks

    You usually can't control Bluetooth audio through steering wheel/hu controls, especially pandora. If you pair the phone to the car and start playing pandora from the phone does it work?

    When I start Pandora no volume goes through my car speakers at all. If I hit pause on the car display screen it pauses the music playing on my phone but nothing else.

    I believe your phone needs to support A2DP audio sharing.

    There is a place in the head unit settings that must be turned on in order to play music via bluetooth through the phone.

    Re: Can you stream Pandora through Bluetooth with an Android phone?

    Hi, I'm a 2012 passat owner and I've been having all kinds of issues with playing music from my Android phone through bluetooth. After trying everything I could think of and playing with all of the phone and car stereo settings I went to the dealer, the service guy sat in my car for almost an hour, with no luck, from there I went to Verizon and they tried some things that didn't work either. Finally I went to Best Buy, the guy I spoke to there was also extremely helpful, he recommended I get an Aux cable and try that, well that did the trick! Music now soulds Great through the car stereo, it's a little annoying having to plug it in, but that's minor, and the only other annoyances for me is the placement of the Aux jack in the car, and that the stereo display doesn't show me what I'm listening to like when I'm just listening to the radio. But all that aside I can listen to my music with really good quality sound, which is what I really wanted!

    I have the SEL Premium trim level on my Passat TDI. My HTC EVO android phone plays music via the bluetooth connection - no problem. These are songs that I copied onto the sim chip in the phone. I'm not sure how Pandora works. I would think you would want to bring in music off line, and then play from memory - vs. streaming.
