Spotify is retiring the car display feature, the app is said to test video feed like TikTok.


According to a commentator on the social series, Spotify is discontinuing the car view driving friendly feature. This feature provides users with relevant information and a simple interface that allows them to control the music playback using the large buttons while driving. The reviewer says the company is “exploring new ways to provide the best car listening experience”. Meanwhile, Spotify is also said to be working on a vertical video feed like TikTok in its application. This may include short videos shared by artists or users.

Many users began to highlight the lack of a car view feature in the Spotify community forum series. Responding to the news, the reviewer confirmed that the music streaming service “stops the car view feature”. He also says that the company is actively exploring new ways to provide the best car listening experience. “Think about retiring [the] Car-view should take place in an effort to pave the way for new discoveries to come along the way, ”the appraiser posted.

It is unclear whether this feature will be removed from both Android and Apple. Spotify subscribers can listen to hands-free music using the Google Assistant type. The reviewer also says that users can link Spotify and Google accounts to control usage via voice.

Since Spotify is said to work on a car accessory with touch controls, this may be a well thought out move. It then introduced Spotify Car Monday, a smart accessory with a display that responds to voice commands triggered by “Hey Spotify”. It can also be controlled by using touch gestures or the large dial on the front.

In another Spotify related development, the Swedish audio streaming service provider is said to be working on a short video feature such as TikTok. One step Tweet Spotify will have a fourth icon in the toolbar called Discover, by Chris Messina, which is an “abbreviated version of the feed of dictation-style vertical music videos” that you may like or dislike. Messina also claims that it could use the company’s canvas feature that allows users or artists to turn static song / album art into eight-second visual loops.
