Try this workaround:

  1. Unpair both devices from each other.
  2. Go to Settings -> About phone -> tap multiple times on "Build number" until you enable "Developer options"
  3. Go back to Settings -> Developer options -> Networking -> Bluetooth AVRCP Version -> Choose AVRCP 1.4 or 1.5
  4. Restart your phone
  5. Pair devices and test.

it's frustrating to be unable to solve it. I will be forced to change the phone and not buy more Sony

I can't do it in my z5 compact because in my networking menu I can't switch Bluetooth AVRCP version. 

How can I fix it? It's frustrating that I can't show metadata in my car using Spotify and other apps.

I have the same issue with my z5. If I restore the phone to the original factory settings will I solve the problem ?

There is no such control in Nougat!
