Spotify Car Thing will compete with Echo Auto
The test with Car Thing will be done with a small group of Spotify Premium users.
Spotify is testing waters in music hardware, starting with something it calls as the 'Car Thing'.
The live streaming music service announced on its blog that Car Thing is part of its test program to understand people's listening habits and preferences. The hardware is a voice-controlled music and podcast device.
The test with Car Thing will be done with a small group of Spotify Premium users in the US only. The company promises to work on similar voice-specific tests which may include a 'Voice Thing' or a 'Home Thing'.
