Spotify continues to make itself at home in your car. Following its Ford hook-up at MWC last month, its announced a new team-up with Volvo that will bring a voice-navigated version of the music service to the car maker’s new models. It’ll form part of Volvo’s new Sense Connected Touch dashboard system which includes a 7-inch touchscreen for anyone that doesn’t feel like talking at their dash. Users can also stream music with a 3G or 4G dongle or tethered to your smartphone of choice. The Spotify UI itself will be familiar to anyone who’s used the app before and as the system runs on Android, you’ll also be able pick up the likes of Google Maps and other music-playing options available on Google Play. It’ll arrive this May as a dealer-fitted accessory on new Volvo V40, V40 Cross Country, S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80 models, while you’ll also be able to retrofit it to vehicles made since 2011. Spotify and Volvo has an in-car tour for us right after the break.
