Leaks of information about the car gadget Car Thing from Spotify are gradually adding up to the overall picture. Everything is not happening as fast as we would like: the first data on Car Thing appeared more than three years ago. The image of this voice-controlled device has changed over the years.
Recent photos of Car Thing, submitted to the FCC, coincided with fresh renders extracted from the code of one of the proprietary iOS applications. We can assume that the novelty will be released in the form factor of a smartphone designed for landscape orientation. It will be supplemented with several mounting options for the car dashboard.
A row of quick access buttons is visible in the upper end of the case. On the right is a large encoder – the only detail that makes Spotify Car Thing images from three years old similar to today. The FCC filings state that the company “has made significant efforts to develop this product, and this is one of the first products of its kind in the industry”.
More detailed information about Car Thing, the release date of the new product and its price from Spotify has not yet been reported.
