CarPlay is Apple’s virtual assistant for facilitate communication between the iPhone, the vehicle and the driver in order to avoid distractions and accidents. This assistant is compatible with all native Apple applications and with third-party Apps such as Spotify, where we are going to see what are the main functions that you can do with this music and podcast application.
Spotify and CarPlay, a perfect combination
The Swedish service company is one of the best third-party apps to accommodate CarPlay and is even on par with native Apple apps. In addition, with the latest updates from Apple, we can now put the Spotify player by default, so we do not have to remind Siri with which application we want to start the journey in the car. Next, we are going to comment on the main functions that you can do with this app:
- Summon Siri: the safest way to use Spotify is through voice search. We can ask Siri to play any song, to play a certain playlist or simply an artist or album. Since iOS 15, we can ask the virtual assistant to play the latest Avantasia album or a certain playlist.
- Spotify’s Endless Library: you can access all kinds of lists, albums, songs and artists that we mark as favorites from the iPhone to access their latest works or singles. Needless to say, you can play the playlists that you have personally created or tell Siri that you want to exploit a certain music genre.
- Offline music has never been so easy: If you are driving on a mountain road and you don’t have a good connection, you can listen to the downloaded music on iPhone in offline format. It is true that you will only be able to listen to certain artists, but it does not mean that you will not be able to enjoy them until the connection is restored.
- Explore: Spotify allows you not only to listen to music, but you can also listen to Podcasts depending on the duration of the journey. If you go from home to work, Spotify can choose a 15-20 minute podcast to make the journey to the office much more enjoyable.
A great future ahead
The latest updates to Apple CarPlay have greatly improved the performance of the Application, considerably improving its features, with better searches and answers. Along with this, Apple has completely renewed the interface, much more visual and with easily accessible buttons so you don’t have to take your eyes off the road.
Finally, remember that AppleCar Play is an operating system developed by Cupertino to connect it to the iPhone so that you can enjoy music, podcasts, listen to messages or activate Apple Maps without taking your eyes off the road in order to avoid distractions and accidents. All these functions can be done through Siri, which is Apple’s assistant and fundamental in this interaction between Apple and the vehicle.
