Of the announcement, Pascal de Mul, global head of hardware partnerships at Spotify, said: “We are really excited to announce this innovative, hands-free in-dash Spotify service today with Volvo, so that even more drivers will be able to enjoy Spotify music safely while on the road.”

Revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, the announcement follows Ford’s plans to integrate Spotify via the Ford Sync AppLink system in the US in the coming weeks and in Europe later this year.

He added: “Spotify wants to make it as easy as possible for people to enjoy all the world's music wherever and whenever they are. We know that the car is the number one environment in which people want to listen to music, so we are working to make Spotify available for drivers in as many types of car as possible.”
