Apple Carplay Spotify Voice Commands

After finally adding support for standalone Apple Watch streaming in November, Spotify is now beta testing a major update to its CarPlay application. The latest version fo Spotify for iOS distributed to TestFlight beta users this week brings a new queue system as well as interface changes.

  1. Lucky you—your car is already Spotify integrated! For Android Auto, start your car, plug your phone into the USB port, and play Spotify. For CarPlay for iOS, start your car and make sure Siri is on. Plug your phone into the USB port or connect wirelessly. Then, on your iPhone, go to “Settings,” then “General,” then “CarPlay.”.
  2. It looks like all music apps have to use the same playback screen in CarPlay. You might notice that the playback screen in Apple Music has more buttons (e.g. Shuffle, etc.), so it seems Spotify needs to re-initialize this screen somehow with different parameters in order to start, and is unable to do so the first time.

Are you having issues with Apple CarPlay? Sometimes you may not be able to connect your iPhone to CarPlay. Another common issue is that CarPlay suddenly stops working or keeps disconnecting after it is connected, and this may start after an iOS update.

The biggest change in the latest beta version of Spotify is support for a queue system, as first spotted by users on Twitter. This helps bring the CarPlay experience in Spotify in line with Apple Music. The new interface allows users to quickly view what is next in the queue without having to use their iPhone, with a dedicated “Go to queue” button directly on the now playing interface.

Alongside this new queue system, Spotify has also made some other visual changes to its CarPlay application. There are still four tabs along the top for quick access to Home, Recently Played, Browse, and Library. There is also colorful album artwork and accents on the now playing screen. The Home tab offers quick access to daily news, personalized playlists, and more.

As it stands right now, there’s no word on when Spotify will roll out this redesigned CarPlay experience to everyone. The company has a history of rolling out updates at a slower pace than users would like, but hopefully the new CarPlay experience comes sooner rather than later.
