Car View, the mode & agrave; auto of the official Spotify app for Android and iOS, is about to be removed : has already confirmed it; several weeks ago the company & agrave; itself, offering subscribers a new reason to protest broadly and widely on the forum official. Spotify explained that the abandonment of Car View is; necessary to allow developers to study even more ways; effective and functional to optimize the experience of using the platform in the car, but you know, facts are always preferable to promises. Also because & eacute; right in these days there & # 39; & egrave; already enough controversy due to the continued lack of support for Apple's HomePods, despite the fact that almost a couple of years ago it said it would come.

The protests of the users do not show signs of stopping despite the fact that about a month has passed since the opening of the first thread; finally the message & egrave; & quot; do not take away functionality; useful before having implemented the replacement ones & quot ;. Spotify suggests using Google Assistant and other voice assistants to trigger playback, and, for charity, & egrave; easy to find alternative methods of various kinds; but the integrated one was so comfortable that the feeling is; to take a step back – or more & ugrave; of one, if & egrave; for this.

WHAT'S IN THE MIDDLE OF CAR THING?

Wanting to be mischievous, one can & ograve; also observe how the settings section once dedicated to Car View has been replaced by that for Car Thing, which is a product launched by Spotify in recent months for 80 dollars and is; basically a sort of additional touch screen (with even some physical buttons) that allows you to control the service when you & egrave; behind the wheel. But, in fact, it has a cost, where a smartphone with Car View uses equipment that the user already has; owns. Among other things is not; not even available worldwide : currently & egrave; was only launched in the USA. Plus, the reviews didn't even cover it much; fine.

It remains to understand how Spotify will decide & agrave; to react to criticism. We have noticed that in some cases the company & agrave; knows how to listen to the feedback of its users, especially when they have an important name like Adele's; let's say that now we need & quot; only & quot; a prominent testimonial also for Car View.
