Spotify is finally making its first foray into becoming a hardware company. The music streaming service revealed plans this week to start testing its new device called Car Thing, a voice-controlled smart assistant for cars. its blog post announcing the device, the company hasn’t really explained what kind of commands Car Thing can handle, though they’re probably all related to audio consumption. This isn’t a device meant to compete with dash-mounted navigations. Although if it does become successful it could potentially morph into something that sets it on a collision course to compete with Apple’s CarPlay. The Verge claims the company has trademarked Voice Thing and Home Thing, suggesting the company has broader ambitions. For now though, Spotify insists its focus is not on creating hardware.
