    Alphadog, you did get Oreo on your phone, yes?

    Why is no on else trying this? I fail to believe we are the only 3 people that have music on our phones. LOL
    It's pretty sweet.
    This thread started because you had to pair a new phone, right? And you're implying that you're running Oreo on that phone, right? That screen shot looks like "peer supports advanced feature" maybe refers to folder browsing, right? Thus Mazda [the peer] supports it. Therefore the car knows, and displays the appropriate buttons.
    So I'm gonna bet 2 bits that you're right. 7.0 or my phone or both don't support it.

    But since I always shuffle, I don't really give a rat's patootie. But next time you try it, please try a shuffle and tell me if it shuffles your entire collection.
    Just curious.

    I just tested with an Android 7.0 phone - no root or browsing. I can use Google Play music to choose between podcasts and music and get artist/etc displayed, but I can't browse the phone.

    I do know that Android 8 added a lot of new BT functionality. I haven't tried with my wife's iPhone yet, so not sure if this BT browsing works with it or not.

    On the Android 8 phone with the connect system it appears easier to move between music and podcasts from the head unit - something you can't do with Android 7 - but i still need to test.

    So when you use that phone you had 5 buttons?
    I'll bet it doesn't work on any iPhone.

    Lol, it works perfectly on iPhone. I use it all the time and it works with Spotify, Apple Music, and local music.
    In fact, I was scratching my head at this thread because I thought everyone could. Forgot that some android devices don't always get the best features

    We're not talking about Spotify, or any streaming music.. we aren't even talking about using the local player to stream to the headunit.
    This is specifically about browsing the content in the phone from the head unit over BT.
    \Edit/ Just tried wife's iPhone 7 with iOS 11 and it worked fine.

    You got to get something for all that extra money besides the name 'apple' and imprisonment in their ecosystem.

    Shuffle does not work at all.
    Even turned tooltips back on to make sure I was hitting the right button...
