Spotify testing ‘Car Thing’

Technology Inceptions

To help people enjoy audio while driving, Swedish music streaming giant Spotify is testing its first hardware - a voice-controlled music and podcast player for cars called ‘Car Thing’. The test will be limited to the United States and the company will invite a select few Spotify Premium users for the same.Spotify has stated that it doesn't have any plans to release the device for the consumers at this point, according to reports.

The device plugs into a vehicle's 12-volt outlet for power and connects to both a person's car and phone over Bluetooth.The wake word for the device as planned is ‘Hey Spotify’, which, followed by a song request would allow users to access their playlists and listen to their favourite songs. ‘Car Thing’ is designed with a circular screen on one side, to display what is being played, and on the other side are a series of buttons that can be used to access playlist presets.
