So you have $ 100 left over. Maybe Grandma included a cool hundo on this year's birthday card, or, hell, let's say you're a brain genius who always has extra money out there. Yes, we go with that.
The question is, what are you going to do with your excess wealth? If the Spotify music streaming service has its way, you are going to spend those dollars on your next voice-controlled music player, which is absolutely necessary for your car. That's right, Spotify is supposedly entering the hardware game.
This is reported by the Financial times, which points out that the company best known to the shitty artists is asking them to throw in some additional dollars earned in their own way in exchange for a device that the market is definitely claiming.
"The Spotify device will be synchronized with the car's sound equipment through the Bluetooth connection, as well as with the predefined buttons that correspond to the Spotify playlists, according to the people informed about the plans," says the Financial times. "The device would also allow people to control the player by voice, these people said."
In other words, it is hardware that plays music on your car stereo and responds to voice commands. Which, if you're scratching your head wondering why your smartphone can no longer do those things, then you just do not do it. thinking hard enough
We came to Spotify in an attempt to determine how this rumor-like device will justify its existence when, for all appearances, it is totally unnecessary. We have not received a response yet at the close of this edition.
In particular, this is not the first time we heard the rumors of a Spotify speaker. In February 2018, the company published a list of works that indicated that something tangible was in the works.
"Spotify is on track to create its first physical products and establish an operational organization for manufacturing, supply chain, sales and marketing," read the job description for Operations Manager: Hardware Product. The list has already been deleted.
So hurry up and prepare your money, because thanks to the Financial times We know that Spotify expects to launch the device this year. And you, a person who can never own too many redundant devices, should be the first in line to buy one.
