Spotify Joins the Ford AppLink Party

Earlier this week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Ford announced that the popular music app Spotify will be the next addition to their Sync AppLink feature. Sync AppLink allows Ford owners to access popular mobile apps using hands-free voice-recognition, creating a safe and convenient experience.   Spotify will be making its AppLink debut within the next couple of weeks and boasts all the features of the mobile app. Using only their voice, Ford owners will be able to control all the obvious music commands such as playing and pausing music, turning the “shuffle” feature on and off, or choosing between different playlists. Other, more interesting features include the Sync’s ability to determine similar music you might like depending on what you’re listening to. Spotify’s social media features from the mobile app will also be integrated into the AppLink app as well.

This is the first time Spotify has worked directly with an automotive manufacturer.
