After being in the works for years, Spotify is finally releasing its first-ever hardware product. The Spotify Car Thing, currently only available in the US, is an 80-dollar voice-controlled device that Spotify is selling for a limited time.
Although the final product looks very different from the prototype, the functions stay true to Spotify’s goals.
Spotify Car Thing
Car Thing is a smart player that allows you to fill your car with music, entertainment, news, and more. The device allows users to play audio faster, and switch according to the user’s mood.
Moreover, the device can be controlled depending on the user’s preferences, whether it be with touch, voice, or physical controls.
The kit contains the device, a charger, various methods to mount the Car Thing on your dashboard, and stick-on cable clamps for preventing dangling cables across your car dashboard.
Free Spotify Car Thing
As of the moment, the company is giving away free Car Things for a limited time, where only users of Spotify Premium can sign up to get the chance of receiving a free one. However, selected users still have to pay for shipping and handling.
How to Get a Free Car Thing
According to KnowTechie, only Spotify Premium users are eligible to get the device for free; however, some users were able to sign up without it.
Here’s how you can include your name in the list for a chance to acquire your own Car Thing free of charge!
Reminders: Although Spotify offers it for free, only the device and its accessories are free; selected people will still need to pay for shipping and handling.
Step 1: Visit the Spotify Car Thing website and sign in to your account.
Step 2: On the top right, click on “Put me on the list.”
Step 3: Confirm your email and check “That’s the user and email I want to use.”
Step 4: On the bottom, click on “Get on the list.”
Step 5: Wait for an email from Spotify indicating that you have been selected.
If you’re one of the lucky people to get chosen to receive Spotify Car Thing for free, you will need to pay for the shipping and handling fee of $6.99 for the contiguous U.S. and $14.99 for those in Alaska and Hawaii.
Moreover, although it says only premium subscribers are eligible, Spotify Free users can still sign up, so it’s definitely worth trying your luck for this one.
