To take advantage of this new service, users must first be subscribers to Spotify Premium on their smartphone, and have a compatible Ford vehicle. Voice commands can be used to adjust the volume and access things like top playlists, your music library, similar music, starred songs and radio stations.

 

Since the music is actually streamed from your phone, you might want to take advantage of the offline playlist feature if driving in tunnels, or remote locations where cellular service is hard to acquire. Furthermore, the adoption of an unlimited data plan may be beneficial as well, as constant streaming of music chews through data rations.
