This may already be in the works, but it would be awesome if Spotify was natively integrated with in-car smart audio systems such as the Pioneer AppRadio2 or the like.
I really want the best Spotify experience in my car possible. :)
Sure having a feature right in the car audio device would be good, but you already can have Spotify in your mobile device, connect it with a car audio device that supports bluetooth or AUX and use it like that.
I for one love my Spotify. On vacations, it's great to have a music library with you everywhere.
When I go to my car, I just put my phone (Galaxy Note) to the car dock, (connected via AUX to the car audio)
and stream music while I drive. When going abroad, just switch it to offline mode and use offline playlists.
(I'v set my mobile phone service to not allow data connectivity abroad).
There is a big difference between connecting a moble device with spotify and and spotify car audio interface integration. I think that is what JakeWags89 is talking about. I would like to see this as well. The possibilities could include typical functions you would get for a CD but could also include voice command.
What about an simple adapter type using FM transmitter and bluetooth so it plays out through the exisiting car audio? I have tested one and when you enter your car it can automatically starts up the Spotify app.....
I have been looking to see if there is a unit that has spotify built-in but none exist yet.
I'd love to have this...
I already have a radio with an AUX input but controlling my playlists on my phone is pretty useless and also clumsy. It would be great to have a radio with spotify (and internet radio stations) integrated.
Volvo is showing it on CES 2013:
Voice Command as well! :-)
Parrot just came out with a device supporting spotify.. i might just get one if they don't develop an app for Pioneer AppRadio.. it has no CD Player tho...
I am patiently waiting to see an aftermarket radio have a native spotify app (like Pandora). When this happens My car will be complete! If this does not happen, I will have to switch to a service that does have a native car app. :( Dont make me switch!
