Spotify Announces Car Thing

Ashley Carman, the Verge:

Spotify’s first gadget has landed. Car Thing, a Spotify-only, voice-controlled device for the car, is launching today in limited quantities to invited users. It’s a dedicated, Bluetooth-connected device for controlling Spotify without the need for a phone screen, which seems to be meant for people who drive older cars without built-in infotainment systems or phone connections.

It is called “Car Thing”. How terrific is that? I don’t even care that it is, according to Carman, not a particularly great product. It is called “Car Thing”. That is a slam-dunk.
