People have recently started asking about the disappearance of this feature directly on the Spotify support site, and it turned out that this was not a mistake, but an intention. “We can confirm that this function is ending. However, this does not mean that we no longer care about the safety of playback control while driving. We are still actively looking for new ways to interact with the in-car application. The old feature should free up space for a new solution. Before it becomes available, we recommend controlling Spotify behind the wheel, for example via Google Assistant or Google Maps, ”writes a representative of the official support. The reaction started a wave of criticism and misunderstanding.

Fans of this feature are also skeptical about that the exact replacement and the date of its launch have not been described. Spotify recently introduced its own Car Thing hardware for playing music in the car, but perhaps this is not the promised solution. That would be pretty annoying.
