Well, this was a long time coming. Spotify's upping it car compatibility by bringing its streaming services to Ford's Sync AppLink. The voice controlled version of the app lets users perform the standard array of controls sans-hands, including play, skip, et al. More interesting are the Spotify-tailored features, like starring tracks, getting details about a song, adding to a roadtrip playlist and received shared tracks while your eyes are on the road. The updated app is "coming soon" for iOS, according to Spotify, and the service is also set to be the first music streamer for Sync AppLink's European launch.
