Volvo Announces Spotify Integration in the Dashboard of All Its New Cars

For decades, the car dashboard has been the domain of AM/FM radio, augmented by tape machines and CD players. In the late 90s, satellite radio was added. A few years after that, we got AUX jacks and finally, smartphone connections.  The next step? Adding apps.

As anyone who has rented a car in the US knows, apps are already showing up in infotainment units. Pandora, Aha and iHeartRadio are just a few of the apps that wink into existence when you start the car. And there’s more coming.

Volvo, for example, just announced Spotify integration into all their new models, joining Tesla and BMW. More at Gizmag.
