Revamped Car Mode
Spotify is also bringing in new features to the Car Mode. There will be a newly revamped home screen for the app when users switch to Car Mode. This will show larger imagery and a redesigned navigation bar. There will be a banner on top of the screen that will inform users that Google Assistant can be used to control playback. Meanwhile, listening to a track now also shows a refreshed Now Playing design with bigger, round buttons and quick access to shuffling and voice control.
Other tweaks are also being worked on. Free users will now be allowed to listen to offline songs for the first time, but only for 30 minutes per day. There is also a new playlist option called Auto-Refresh. This lets the playlist adapt automatically while users manually add songs. There are also new animations for liked songs being developed, along with improvements to the Spotify Podcasts section.
