Spotify is testing further integration with Google Maps and Waze: Report

Music streaming platform Spotify got integration for Google Maps in December last year, which allows the user to control the app right from the navigation search of Maps. And now, according to a recent development, Spotify’s Android version is testing Google Maps and Waze integration natively which will allow users to select and decide which app could access the Spotify’s playback control. Some other features have also been discovered with reverse engineering on Spotify’s app including Song Sharing and Sleep Timer.

The information was first revealed by Jane Manchun Wong who reverse engineered the music streaming app to discover the new features it may come with in the future. The discovery shows an integration of the navigation apps in the settings of the music streaming platform, Spotify. As we mentioned earlier, the integration of the navigation included Google Maps and Waze.

The users can decide which navigation app they want to give access so that they can get smart commute updates coupled with Spotify’s playback control. For this, users need to go to the ‘Connect to Apps’ settings in Spotify, and then head to ‘Navigation’ section. From here, they can give access to the apps that they want to. The report also states that Google Maps and Waze both can be connected with Spotify at the same time.

Other than this, users will also have the option to decide whether they want a reminder about using the navigation apps when they are in a car. Waze, a GPS navigation software earlier didn’t have this feature so the users of the app may find it to be a useful addition. However, it is worth mentioning that Google Maps already has similar feature on its platform. With this integration, the users of the Spotify app will get more options.

The discoverer, Wong claims to have discovered multiple new and upcoming features in the Android version of the Spotify app. Some of the features includes a Sleep Timer which allows users to set a timer on the app so that when it reaches the set time, the app will stop the music automatically. When launched, this feature can be used by users of the app by going in the ‘Settings for Songs’ sub-menu inside the Spotify app.

There is another feature that gives users the ability to share songs with their friends through a new ‘Connect with friends’ option. Once it is available, the users would be able to scan a code from their friend’s Spotify app and play the same playlist on their app.

We must add that Wong’s discovery of the new features comes through reverse engineering so there is a high possibility that the new features are just being tested and we might not get them.
