Hit the Road with Spotify in Ford Vehicles

  • Spotify Now Compatible with New Ford SYNC 3 Communications and Entertainment System

What’s a drive without Music? Yes, you’ll still get where you’re going, but will you truly enjoy the ride — we think not.   

To give drivers a more complete music experience in the car, Spotify has extended its partnership with Ford, to enable Spotify users (Free and Premium) with SYNC 3-equipped cars to control Spotify from the driver’s seat with several new enhanced features for iOS and Android.

Spotify, one of the first apps to integrate with AppLink, is the only on-demand music service available on the all-new SYNC 3 communications and entertainment system, first launching on 2016 models of the Ford Escape and Fiesta this summer, and expanding to all Ford vehicles by the end of next year. This makes it easier than ever for Ford drivers to access Spotify and hit the road with a brand new interface designed for the car.

In addition to all the great Spotify AppLink integration found in Ford cars since 2013, this latest and greatest version, SYNC 3, for 2016 Ford Escape and Fiestas this summer, includes the following new features for iOS and Android users:

  • SYNC 3 includes a rich color touchscreen display for large cover art, plus Browse, Your music, Search, your playlists and all the other music and podcasts from your Spotify apps.
  • Drivers can now speak to choose playlists synced across any device, toggle shuffle on and off, save tracks to their music collection, and more, all hands-free.
  • Faster, more responsive, and easier to use via voice and dashboard controls.

Spotify er nå tilgjengelig på PlayStation™Music!

I dag Spotify og Sony Network Entertainment International LLC (SNEI) er veldig glade for å lansere den nye eksklusive musikkopplevelse med PlayStation – som gjør det enklere enn noensinne for gamere og alle Spotify-brukere i 41 markeder rundt om i verden til å nyte favorittmusikken sine mens de spiller favorittspillene sine. Helt korrekt, de beste innen musikk samarbeider nå med de beste innen spill. Så enten du stuper fra hustak i Paris, kjemper mot ondskapen i Crota eller spiller mot Barcelona på Camp Noe, er det du som nå styrer bakgrunnsmusikken. 

Styr musikken selv

  • Mens du hører på musikk i bakgrunnen på PlayStation®4 (PS4™), kan du styre musikken helt selv slik at du kan nyte favorittlåtene dine samtidig som du spiller. Det kan jo være du dør et par ganger i hendene (eller klørne) på de fryktelige monstrene i det kritikerroste action-rollespillet Bloodborne™, så hvorfor ikke gjøre det til musikken du selv velger? Enten du er i stemning for litt pop, hip-hop eller klassisk musikk… med over 30 millioner låter har du litt å velge mellom.

Musikken som passer deg

  • Nyt alle favorittlåtene dine når det passer deg best. Velg mellom en av dine favoritter fra Your Music eller Browse for å finne den perfekte spillelisten for ethvert humør eller øyeblikk. Vi har til og med laget nye spillelister for spilling, kun for deg.

Du trenger ikke ta pause

  • Med Spotify Connect kan du hoppe over låter eller skru opp musikken ved hjelp av mobilen eller nettbrettet på PS4 og PS3.

1_How-to-playVi vet at musikk alltid har vært en stor del av gaming og gleder oss til å løfte spilleopplevelsen til et helt nytt nivå. Med dagens lansering ønsker vi å ta tilbake det magiske rundt spill og musikk – pakket inn i et vakkert design og en sømløs opplevelse som ser flott ut på den store skjermen. Vi har jobbet tett sammen med PlayStation® for å utvikle en helt ny musikkopplevelse som ikke bare høres fantastisk ut, men som også ser bra ut på TV’en og som sømløst håndterer bruken av de trådløse DualShock-kontrollene.

Spotify på PlayStation Music vil rulles ut til alle Spotify brukere på PS4 og PS3 i dag, og vil også bli tilgjengelig på Xperia™smarttelefoner og nettbrett.
