Volvo will be the first car company to fully integrate the Spotify music streaming service into all of its models without the use of a smartphone.
Making the announcement at Mobile World Congress 2016, Volvo said its new S90 and V90 models, which are both due to be released in the spring, will be the first to receive the service, along with the XC90 SUV.
Volvo has worked closely with the popular music streaming service to design a useable interface that does not require the use of a smartphone.
Currently, Spotify is only available by using Apple’s CarPlay and Bluetooth, both of which are available on newer Volvo models: the new service means music streaming even if (shock) you leave the smartphone at home.
Volvo announced that this feature will be available in all countries where Spotify is currently offered.
