Spotify simplifies playback

Spotify simplifies playback

Spotify is shutting down its Car View feature that was added to the music streaming service’s Android and iOS apps back in 2019.

The Car View feature helped Spotify users quickly navigate through quick settings in the app and control music playback when driving, thus reducing interaction with the app when their hands are supposed to be on the wheel.

The Verge reported that the removal of the popular feature was confirmed recently when a Spotify moderator was spotted responding to a query on the Spotify community page.

“We can confirm that we’re retiring the car view feature. We want to improve on how our users listen to Spotify while driving,” said the moderator. A second comment from another moderator confirmed that the service is also getting rid of yet another feature.
