[MWC 2013] Over several months, Spotify has been making its application available on anything with an Internet connection. The latest platform to receive a dedicated Spotify application was Windows Phone 8, although we know BlackBerry 10 should expect to get their Spotify fix very soon. One area Spotify would do rather well in is inside of vehicles, which up until now music lovers would have to allow their Bluetooth-enabled smartphones or tablets to sync with their vehicles to be able to pump out Spotify tunes as they drive around town.
Spotify is making it easier for millions of commuters to have Spotify in their vehicles as today they’re announcing a partnership with Ford to bring their streaming-music service to its vehicles. A Spotify application will be launched by Ford as part of its Sync AppLink system. Sync AppLink-equipped vehicles will be able to install Spotify onto their vehicles in the next few weeks across North America.
The Spotify app will support voice commands such as play music, shuffle, repeat and choose playlist. The voice command “Play everything except for Justin Bieber” is still a few years away from being available in the Spotify Sync app, which we hope Ford is seriously considering in an upcoming update.
