Spotify Has a New Device That Hooks Up to Your Car, and It's Free For a Limited Time

Coming to you live with the newest tech product you didn't know you needed, but most definitely do: meet Spotify Car Thing. This device pairs well with long drives and good vibes, and for a limited time, it's completely free! Here's the tea:

What Is Spotify Car Thing?

This new smart player is basically an Alexa for your car, and it's just what music-lovers have been waiting for. Spotify Premium members can connect their phones to the player and listen to music, news, entertainment, and more from the comfort of their cars.

What Does Spotify Car Thing Do?

Users of the device can ask, tap, turn, or swipe it to listen to any content they want right at their fingertips. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly for drivers, Car Thing responds to voice commands, letting music fans focus on what's important: the road ahead of them. Car Thing also has four presets that are customizable, so you can keep your favorite playlists, podcasts, songs, and more right where you need them.

How Can You Get Spotify Car Thing?

Car Thing is free (!) for US residents right now, meaning all you have to pay for is shipping (which is $7 for those in the continental US and $15 for Alaska and Hawaii residents.) Just sign up here and be one of the first to get notified when the new device is available. Once you have it, all you have to do is say, "Hey, Spotify," and you'll be able to ask Car Thing to play your favorite hits on repeat no matter how long you're in the car for. It's the perfect excuse to get that summer road trip on the books!
