Google-owned Waze announced a partnership with Spotify earlier this year. The idea was to eliminate the hassle for drivers that want to listen to music while keeping an eye on their navigational app. To enable them to stream music without having to leave the app, Waze announced an integration with Spotify. It was limited to Android back then but the Waze/Spotify integration has now landed on iOS devices.

The partnership between the two companies integrated Spotify playlists into the Waze app. Waze users on Android have since been able to access their playlists inside the Waze app itself. They no longer have to switch between the two apps and can concentrate more on the road.

Months after this integration went live for Android users, it’s finally available on iOS. The integration adds some Waze features to Spotify and vice versa. Waze users can now start navigating to their destination from within the Spotify app. They will also have complete access to Spotify playlists from inside the Waze app. Users can play, pause, and skip tracks.

It’s as easy as linking your Spotify and Waze accounts. Once that’s done, music from Spotify will begin playing automatically when the user starts a trip on Waze. When they’re at a complete stop, users can browse their playlists as well.

All iOS users will be able to take advantage of this integration starting today.
