Recently I reported on Ford teaming up with Spotify to offer in-car hands-free music streaming, and it seems that Volvo is now jumping on that same bandwagon. The company announced today that it has teamed up with Spotify to bring forth a hands-free in-car music system.

Dubbed Sensus Connected Touch, the system will allow users to stream music via a 3G/4G connection and control everything with simple voice commands or a dash mounted touch screen. The system is powered by Android - Volvo promises to keep it updated regularly.

Other apps reported to work on the system are: Google Maps, iGO-Powered GPS and TuneIn Radio. The Sensus Connected Touch will be sold as a dealer option and will be available for the V40, V40 Cross Country, S60, V60, XC60, V70, XC70 and S80 car models.
