Spotify Expands Auto Presence as Android App Comes to MirrorLink

Mirroring” platforms such as MirrorLink, CarPlay and Android Auto allow drivers to use their cars’ controls and speakers for apps that run on their mobile devices. Some carmakers, such as GM, also offer their own built-in interfaces.

For Spotify and other streaming services, it makes sense to make their apps available in as many in-car platforms as possible, says Jennifer Kent, connected-car analyst at Parks Associates. “We definitely see that music services are among the most popular in connected vehicles, because it rides the rails of consumer behavior in a vehicle already,” she tells Billboard.
