I don't seem or can't get the Radio Station Artwork to show on my screen. I have an Android phone and was wondering does it only work with Apple Carplay. I've tried both FM and DAB

The radio station artwork is independent of the phone - it comes through the radio transmission not from your phone connection. I also don't get any artwork or even track information in DAB for some stations that I know broadcast it because my wife's car shows the info; this was the same on my old Cooper S and my current Cooper SE. The MINI's radio system is pretty poor in software terms.

My daughters Apple phone gives album art on ours when she listens to her music-our Android phones don't

I thought only HD radio stations could show artwork.
We don't get HD radio over here - our digital radio is delivered through DAB (which is different to HD). Nonetheless, DAB radio can broadcast artwork and playing information, but the MINI seems to ignore it.

it's well known fact that BMW and Android are not good fellas.

But thanks to community, what a billion dollar company cant do, individual developers can ! (IDK about DAB, but this app will provide covers with music streaming apps like spotify etc and much more)

I assumed the question was about radio (DAB and FM) rather than music sourced from a phone.
Me too sorry-just thought it would add to the picture (no pun intended!)
