As you would expect from Jaguar Land Rover, they seem to be ahead of the curve as always, and have managed to secure an exclusive partnership with the world’s largest audio streaming service, Spotify.
What is Spotify?
Spotify is a digital music streaming service that allows you to access millions of songs, podcasts and videos. Spotify has over 100million users worldwide, accessing music fram a huge variety of artists and genres. The free version of Spotify is similar to a commercial radio station in the fact that although you get to choose the music you listen to, your song choices are intertwined with short radio-style adverts.
Following launch at the end of September 2016, the Spotify in-car app, available through the InControl Apps library on both iOS and Android can utilise both online & offline Spotify modes, means that you can always listen to your favourite songs, even in low-signal areas. Picking your own offline playlists is a great feature of Spotify, which may mean all of those ‘Driving Anthems’ CDs stashed away in the glove box may need to find a new home.
Jaguar Land Rover say they have been working alongside Spotify for a number of years to bring this partnership to fruition, and are extremely excited to bring this new app to all vehicles, past and future, with InControl apps (vehicles since 2014).
As excited as we are about this new innovation from JLR here at Britcar, nothing quite beats a cassette in a car, does it?
