Spotify: Car View is discontinued, new solution in progress

If you have used Spotify while in the car via the car view, you should certainly be interested in the fact that you will soon no longer be able to use it. Spotify discontinues the Car View and the first users report according to Androidpolice already that they no longer see the view that is optimized for car journeys. Of course you could just spend extra money and buy Spotify’s “Car Thing” so that you can continue to enjoy Spotify in your car without any problems and, above all, without distractions, but that really cannot be the solution. According to Spotify they are already working on a “new way” of how users can use the service while driving. Why one should switch off the previous option without having a new solution at the start, however, is not really clear to me.

We can confirm that we’re retiring the car view feature. This however doesn’t mean we don’t want to improve on how our users listen to Spotify while driving. On the contrary, we’re actively exploring a variety of new ways to deliver the best in-car listening experience. Think of retiring car-view as something that needs to happen in an effort to make way for new innovations coming down the track. – Spotify
