Spotify has now started rolling out a new Car View mode for Android, which when connected to Bluetooth in a vehicle, offers simplified controls and views of the app to make everything easier (and hopefully safer) to control.
Not everyone is seeing Car View yet, but over at Android Central, they're seeing it on Pixel devices, and my BlackBerry KEY2 currently has it enabled by default as well. With it enabled by default, it will automatically show when Spotify connects to your vehicles Bluetooth. You can disable it in the settings, or you can disable it until the next time it connects to Bluetooth.
Spotify can already tap into Android Auto and Car Play but if you're working with a car without either of those, built-in Bluetooth only or using a Bluetooth adapter, this is a sweet addition to the app. Have you checked it out yet?
