Expose artist/track music via Bluetooth [released]

I've noticed that when I play music via Bluetooth in my car, the dashboard unit just says «Jolla» (probably due to that being my phone's Bluetooth device name). This is at least the case with the default Media player, with CuteSpot, and with Google Music (via aliendalvik).

When playing music from other devices (such as an Android phone), the currently playing artist and track is displayed on the car's dashboard unit. That's a feature I'd be happy to see my Jolla support, too.

Had that on my previous Linux-based phone, too, and I already noticed it's missing from Sailfish.

With Aurajoki (, Jolla C and the default media player I can confirm that this is fixed! Track names, Album names and Artist names are transferred correctly to my bluetooth enabled car audio.

Same OS version on Jolla did not work for me last week in VW and the week before last week in Mercedes.
