Spotify has currently launched its Car Thing device’s update that will now allow you to manage or control other media. Spotify’s Car thing supports several features that include the ability to take incoming calls, extend your playlist with the additional music, and control the media that is nowhere associated with Spotify. Presently, most of these features are available for iOS devices only. However, Spotify is working to get the features available for Androids devices also.
Spotify’s Car Thing device features a 4-inch touchscreen and a wheel that helps you navigate through the screen. It also features some shortcut buttons and voice recognition ability. Additionally, you also have the option to connect your iOS devices via Bluetooth. Moreover, all you need to pay to get this device is a sum of $90. The device has been designed with the aim to let the drivers handle and navigate Spotify’s content effortlessly. Also, it is best for cars without Apple’s CarPlay or Google’s Android Auto available as part of your car’s infotainment system. The device can only be streamed by Spotify Premium users and is currently available in the US.
These new additional services go beyond the existing Spotify features. Besides navigating the playlist and listening to music, you can check on the phone calls, receive them or even discard them in case they are unworthy of your attention; the feature is only available for iPhone users. These advancements may take you up to the expectation of having voice-assisted outgoing calls, coming over as one more feature on Spotify’s Car thing device. This imagination may soon get projected into reality in the near future.
The software update was released on Thursday, April 7, with the inclusion of certain more features to ease your driving and turn it into a merry ride whenever you wish to set off for a new journey in your car.
