Spotify is leaving no stone unturned to introduce new advancements in the way we all listen to music. The company has announced that Spotify would share a news at an event on 24th April. It has been rumored that this news is about a in-car hardware that is to be introduced by the company this month. The news has not been confirmed by the company so far.
Spotify Might Launch In-House Hardware For Playing Music In Cars
It has been suggested that Spotify is working on “an in-car controller – or even a standalone player – for the streaming service that would allow drivers to control music playback with their voice.”
It has been claimed by many Spotify customers that they are receiving offers from Spotify premium for the subscription of a new device at the cost of $12.99 per month. This subscription would only cost $155 if the customer subscribes this offer for a complete year.
This in-house hardware is supposed to work as an in-car music system. This will have a voice control support, to make it easier for people to listen to the music while driving. This new in-car music system will give a tough competition to various smart speakers like Sonos and Homepod and voice-controlled speakers by Google and Amazon.
It has been reported that there is a mention of this hardware on Spotify’s support forums. But no attention was drawn towards it. Administrators stated this hardware just as a test. “We’re always testing things to improve Spotify, right now we don’t have any news on this, but we’ve let the right team know it’s something you’d like to see,” said a moderator in response to a thread on this subject.
