With more than 20 million active users all over the globe, 5 million of Spotify's users pay for premium memberships. Coupled with the more than one million Ford vehicles in North America that are equipped with Ford SYNC AppLink, more drivers will be able to access hands-free, voice-activated entertainment while driving. Ford drivers who have their iPhone paired with their vehicle's Ford SYNC AppLink system will have access to more than 20 million songs and playlists while keeping their attention on the road.
Spotify Premium subscribers who have the app running on their SYNC-connected iPhone will be able to access the following features from their Ford SYNC AppLink equipped vehicle, all with simple voice commands: Now Playing, Star/Unstar Track, Add Track to your "Road Trip" Playlist, Choose Playlist, Play Starred, Play Music, Similar Music, Recently Played, Start Album/Artist/Track Radio, Shuffle On/Off, Repeat On/Off, Skip Track Forward/Back, Play/Pause, Built In Social Sharing Capabilities, and Program the preset number keys so they work like a radio and save the currently playing album, artist or playlist to that number for easy access.
The partnership, which has been in the works for a year and a half, is Spotify's first collaboration with an automotive manufacturer. More drivers will soon be able to Stream Music with Spotify and Ford SYNC AppLink as Ford will be the first automaker to launch Spotify In The Car. Although a date has not yet been confirmed when the update to the app will be available.
