Spotify’s latest partnership is with an automotive firm: Jaguar Land Rover.

The company has launched its own version of Spotify’s app, which will sit within its InControl Apps system for in-car entertainment.

Due for release on 27 September for iOS, the app will mirror Spotify’s existing interface, but will offer “Just for You” playlists in the hope of avoiding distracting drivers by making them scroll through their collections in the car.

The app will support offline downloads to avoid bad-reception issues, and has apparently been a year in the making between the two companies.

“The Spotify design team worked closely with us to create the best in-vehicle experience, and have spent many hours with us at our Gaydon HQ running user studies with our employees,” said Jaguar Land Rover’s Peter Virk.

The app can be seen in a promotional video featuring musicians Ricky Wilson and Example messing about in cars.
