Spotify doesn't send track information via bluetooth, in the past there have been patched versions of Spotify floating around to add media metadata over bluetooth. This is an xposed module that does the same thing, it hooks into an internal track change function and broadcasts a standard android media intent.
The Spotify APK is run through proguard so method names are likely to change - which means this may not work with all versions and future updates could break it - in which case I will try and fix asap and upload a new version.

It seems that this mod might only be useful for bluetooth info on android 4.2.x and below. 4.3 introduces AVRCP support and should handle things properly. However this mod might still be useful if you have other legacy applications which rely on the old broadcasts to get track information - this seems to be the case for both Pebble and Gear smartwatches.
If you're reporting problems, please include the Device, OS Version and end device you're trying to get to work.
