Whenever I’m driving, I’m usually either listening to podcasts via Pocket Casts or music I have downloaded in Spotify. And I’m usually using those apps with Google Maps via Android Auto. But there are some people who prefer to use Waze for directions because it uses traffic reports as inputted by other users.
Those Wazers may find themselves constantly switching between their preferred podcast or music app while they’re driving but it’s about to get a bit easier through a new partnership between Waze and Spotify.
Spotify and Waze have announced that they would be partnering up to incorporate each of their app’s main features in each other’s apps.
For example, you could start navigating with Waze and then when you switch to Spotify, you’ll see Waze’s turn-by-turn navigation prompts, so then you’re able to easily access your Spotify playlists and control playback.
It also works in vice-versa, where you’ll see Spotify music controls and playlists while you have Waze open. Right now, the integration is only available on Android devices and is rolling out now. For you iOS users, Waze says to stay tuned, meaning that the integration will be coming at a later date.
