Ford And Spotify Team Up For SYNC Hack

Ford's SYNC AppLink allows hands-free use of smartphone apps in its vehicles.

Car manufacturer Ford and music service Spotify (which launched in the U.S. in July) got together at the TechCrunch Hackathon yesterday to provide a demonstration for Ford’s SYNC system. The new voice-activated system allows drivers to control in-car communications and entertainment, such as listening to music and using apps. The hack showed how easy it is to integrate apps like Spotify into SYNC and Ford offered developers information about the new API and SDK. This was Spotify’s first in-car integration and although it was just a hack rather than an official partnership, it might lead to something bigger in the future.
