Waze integrates Spotify music controls in its navigation app

Waze and Spotify are teaming up to make it easier to control your music on the road. The two companies are updating their apps to put a little bit of Waze-powered navigation in Spotify, and a little bit of Spotify-powered music in Waze, The Verge reports.

Users will be able to start a journey using Waze from within the Spotify app on iOS and Android, or change Spotify tracks while following a route using the Waze app. Browsing playlists from within Waze, though, will only be allowed when the car is at a standstill.

It’s a neat idea, and one that should make life a little easier for people who use their phone (and these services) for navigation and music while driving.
