Listening to music while driving can help you relax and make your commute more comfortable. Except when you have to switch between your navigation and streaming apps.
Connecting Spotify to Waze is a better option when you’re behind the wheel. It is pretty easy to do, and it’ll also help you focus on the road.
Waze Supports Spotify Integration
Music is a part of our everyday lives, and we listen to it on our way to work, gym, and on the way back home. And Spotify’s records attest to this. According to a report from Spotify, 34% of its 422 million active users stream music in the car. That’s why the company created Spotify’s Car Thing, a device that acts as a remote for the app while you drive.
Therefore, it makes sense that Waze partnered with Spotify in 2017. Using Spotify on Waze gives you access to the platform’s vast music catalog, which includes more than 70 million user-generated, driving-related playlists. You can even access your personalized Spotify mixes.
How to Play Spotify on Waze on iPhone and Android
To use Spotify on the Waze app, make sure you have the Spotify app installed on your phone, and then follow these steps:
- Open the Waze app on your phone.
- Tap the Music icon in the top-right corner of the screen.
- Select Spotify.
- Waze will prompt you to accept an agreement to connect Waze and Spotify. Follow the prompts as directed.
- Finally, tap Open and start streaming Spotify on Waze.
After you open Spotify, Waze will launch a media player similar to the one on the Spotify app. The player makes it easy to access your Spotify music without exiting Waze and provides basic functionalities like a Play/Pause and Skip buttons.
If you want to listen to something different, tap Show list in the bottom-left corner of the player to open Spotify playlists. Scroll down and tap the playlist you want to stream. However, be sure to do it before driving to avoid getting distracted.
You can start playing the playlist or album you want to listen to on the Spotify app before you open Waze and start driving. Once you open Waze, the media player will seamlessly pick up where you left off when you open the app.
Why You Should Connect Spotify With Waze
Having Spotify connected with Waze means you can get in your car, open Waze, and start listening to your favorite music without setting anything up. There’s no difference between Spotify Free and Spotify Premium in this case, as both plans work with Waze.
It’s a convenient solution as it merges your navigation and streaming needs into one app for a better driving experience. Plus, it keeps you focused on the road, which is of the utmost importance.
Stay Safe and Entertained on the Road With Waze
Waze is an easy app to use, and it makes streaming music quick, convenient, seamless, and safe. It streamlines your driving experience by meeting your navigation and entertainment needs in one place.
The most important benefit is that you can focus on the road ahead and not risk causing a car crash due to reaching for your phone to access the Spotify app. Remember that it only takes a moment of looking down while driving to cause an accident, so be sure to stay safe and focused.
