Question Music connection options

Just picked up new 2014 Mini hardtop from dealer, beautiful.
But trying to connect Samsung phone - Bluetooth for phone was easy and works fine (though using car controls to call out is a pain).
We didn't get the Mini Connected package - but how hard would it be for Bluetooth to work for all audio output from phone, just like a Bluetooth speaker? I assumed it would have this basic functionality.

And cannot play music via USB either, have to use AUX input.

Questions: is there a special USB cable that would help? Does Mini Connected Ap for Android help?
thanks

For bluetooth audio streaming you needed to add the "Enhanced Bluetooth" option from the factory. It's an added feature (and cost)

thanks, that's what I figured... The technology must already be in the car, because the phone is working, so they have deliberately disabled this functionality to try to grab extra money. I don't want to control music from car, just stream like I do with $40 Oontz speaker.
And it seems that USB is not compatible with Samsung, only HTC and LG...

just move your music to a USB stick and plug it in. That's what I did; And for my Connected screen I used ID3 to MP3 free tools (TagScanner and ID3MP3.exe) to get the album art in the songs. Now my connected is much more visual.

Every so often I merge my phone music with the USB stick I keep in my car.

Question for you -- I have a 2014 Countryman S All-4 with no connected package (just the Harmon Karden System) and currently use a 32gb usb stick. This works absolutely perfect, but I am wondering if I was to format a 128gb stick using FAT32, can I use this in my car? Have you (or anyone else) tried this?
