Images that look like Spotify’s in-vehicle device “Car Thing” have been reported overseas.

This image revealed by registration with the FCC (Federal Communications Commission). The figure with a square display is like a smartphone, and there is a circular object in the lower right that seems to be an operation dial. The power supply is a 12V outlet, that is, a cigar socket power supply.

In May 2019, Spotify announced a public test of the voice-controllable in-vehicle smart assistant-equipped device “Car Thing”. It is intended to connect to both vehicles and smartphones via Bluetooth to access playlists on Spotify accounts or collect usage data for music streaming.

But even now, more than a year after its announcement, Spotify hasn’t officially announced the actual product. It’s also unclear whether the device discovered this time is for simple testing, or whether the actual product will appear in this way.

The Financial Times reports that this in-vehicle device could go on sale for around $ 100. It’s not that I don’t feel like I can play that role well on my smartphone, but I’m paying attention to the future of Spotify.
