NEW IN-CAR SPOTIFY APP LAUNCHED BY KAISER CHIEF’S RICKY WILSON AND RAPPER EXAMPLE

You will soon be able to use Spotify in Land Rover vehicles fitted with InControl Apps following the launch of a unique in-car Spotify app, available from 27th September.

In conjunction with Spotify, the world’s largest streaming service, Land Rover has developed the first app to offer in-car personalised playlists based on users tastes and listening habits.

Peter Virk, Director of Connected Technologies and Apps at Jaguar Land Rover, said: “Spotify has more than 100 million subscribers, a portion of whom drive Land Rovers, so we recognised that Spotify was at the top of our customers’ apps wish list. The Spotify design team worked closely with us to create the best in-vehicle experience.”

The collaboration between the two companies is the result of a year’s worth of teamwork between Land Rover and Spotify. The design teams set out to create a familiar and immersive experience designed for in-car use. The interface mirrors that found within Spotify meaning users will recognise it from using their smartphones. In addition, users are able to swipe horizontally to scroll through menus, which display artwork tiles, helping minimise distractions while driving.
The app also makes use of Spotify’s ‘deep learning’ which recognises listener habits, supplying users with personalised ‘Just for You’ playlists containing recommended tracks, saving time when scrolling through music. Drivers in low-signal areas have also been considered; Spotify’s ‘Offline Mode’ intelligently pre-loads content and will display only downloaded content when the driver has a poor internet connection.

First to try the app ahead of its launch was Ricky Wilson of the Kaiser Chiefs and Elliot Gleave, AKA Example. The two went head to head in a battle of musical tastes with both creating a playlist of their top driving songs. The artists’ playlists feature recent and classic tracks and include their latest singles, Kaiser Chiefs’ ‘Hole in My Soul’ and Example’s ‘Later.’ Both driving playlists are available now via the official Kaiser Chiefs and Example Spotify profiles.

The figures provided are as a result of official manufacturer's tests in accordance with EU legislation. A vehicle's actual fuel consumption may differ from that achieved in such tests and these figures are for comparative purposes only.

The figures provided are NEDCeq calculated from official manufacturer’s WLTP tests in accordance with EU legislation. For comparison purposes only. Real world figures may differ. CO2 and fuel economy figures may vary according to wheel fitment and optional extras fitted. NEDCeq are figures calculated using a Government formula from WLTP figures equivalent to what they would have been under the old NEDC test. The correct tax treatment can then be applied.

The figures provided are WLTP. WLTP is the new official EU test used to calculate standardised fuel consumption and CO2 figures for passenger cars. It measures fuel, energy consumption, range and emissions. This is designed to provide figures closer to real-world driving behaviour. It tests vehicles with optional equipment and with a more demanding test procedure and driving profile.

TEL (Test Energy Low) and TEH (Test Energy High) figures are shown as a range under WLTP testing measures. TEL refers to the lowest/most economical figures (with the lightest set of options). TEH refers to the highest/least economical figures (with the heaviest set of options). WLTP legislation dictates that where there is <5g CO2 variance between TEL and TEH, only the TEH is declared.
