Spotify’s Car Thing replaces your vents with a smart music streaming device

Spotify has announced that its Car Thing experiment will be an official product shipping to select Spotify Premium customers.

An unfortunately chosen name for a streaming media player, Car Thing works by syncing with your car’s stereo system, via Bluetooth, or with an included 3.5mm aux cable. The idea is that Car Thing will work with all older cars that don’t use CarPlay or Android Auto, and still rely on older head units for their audio.
