Spotify finally gets on board with Apple CarPlay

Alongside todays news that Apple CarPlay units are finally hitting the road, Spotify has updated its app for iOS to include support for it. It joins other apps such as Stitcher, iHeartRadio and Apple's own Beats Music in supporting the automotive version of iOS and we're happy to see it.

Spotify is one of the biggest streaming music services on the planet so it's certainly one plenty of prospective CarPlay owners will be happy to see. Since CarPlay relies heavily on Siri voice activation, we'd hope that Spotify, too, takes advantage of this to get you listening to your music without taking your hands off the wheel.

Besides CarPlay, Spotify can now speak Swedish and Quebecois on iOS 8 and has had a bunch of bugs fixed for Apple's latest mobile OS. The update is live now in the App Store to grab at your leisure.
