Spotify's first hardware product is here, and it's probably going to confuse you

Despite focusing solely on music streaming software and podcast production over the last decade, Spotify has secretly had a dedicated device for playback since 2019. "Car Thing," as it's called, is designed to make listening to music in the car more accessible and has been in testing with an extremely small number of users in a closed beta. Although Spotify isn't ready to launch its hardware to the general public just yet, it became much more real starting today. A new version of Car Thing is now available for select Premium subscribers through an invite-only release.

You can now ask your Google home speakers to play recommended Spotify tracks

You can now ask your Google home speakers to play recommended Spotify tracks

Google Home and Assistant already offer plenty of music-related commands that let you play any track, artist, album, or playlist you want. But if you have nothing in particular in mind, the options become a lot more limited. You can say "play some music," which usually continues where you last left off, though that's not conductive to discovery. With some new commands, you'll be able to trust Spotify to play recommended tracks for you without having to continue or choose anything.

AmpMe adds Spotify streaming to its multi-device music party app

AmpMe, the app that turns several phones into perfectly synchronized speakers for the same music, has seen many updates since its release in 2015. At first, the app only supported SoundCloud as a music source, but it has added local music and YouTube, and improved its app to synchronize Bluetooth speakers as well (with their delays). Now the service is adding one of its most requested features: Spotify support.

You can choose to stream music from Spotify in AmpMe, just like you would choose YouTube or SoundCloud or your local library. But you will have to sign in with your premium Spotify account for that to work.
