We had previously covered some of Ford’s latest technology that will (or in some cases, already has) become standard features in their recent model offerings. You can check out that post here. Earlier this week, Ford announced that the internet music service Spotify will now be integrated with their Sync AppLink system, joining several other music apps including Pandora, Rhapsody, IHeartRaido, the Amazon Cloud Player and more.
As the radio and local music stations seems to be more of a second option these days, despite already having a list of music apps available on the Sync AppLink system, it comes as no surprise that Ford would add Spotify to its offerings—as the online music store already gained more than 10 million users in Europe before even launching in the U.S.
With the Sync AppLink, Ford users will be able to use the Spotify app on the road—drivers will be able to use voice commands for a bevy of controls of what they want to listen to. Again, this type of airplay control is similar to what the other apps are capable of, with some minor differences.
Overall, this is great news for the people at Spotify, finally finding a home in the automotive industry.
