Spotify’s Car Thing replaces your air vents with a smart music streaming device Spotify Car Thing

Spotify has announced that its Car Thing experiment will become an official product that will ship to selected Spotify Premium customers.

Car Thing, an unfortunately chosen name for a streaming media player, works by syncing up with your car’s stereo system, either via Bluetooth or with an included 3.5mm aux cable. The idea is that Car Thing will work with all older cars that don’t use CarPlay or Android Auto, and still rely on older head units for their audio.
