The Amazon Music mobile application is getting a new feature to make it somewhat simpler to use while driving. Car Mode is a simplified version of Amazon Music’s interface, including bigger buttons, proposed playlists and albums, and simple access to Alexa.
Once enabled, Car Mode is divided into two sections. The upper part close to the top of your phone is given to playback controls like play, pause, and skip, while the bottom section features a collection of music ideas which you can switch between with a swipe or a tap. On the off chance that a hands-free experience sounds better (and it presumably ought to in case you’re attempting to drive securely) you can trigger Alexa in the bottom right corner with a tap or by utilizing an Alexa voice command (“Hey Alexa, play Elton John”).
Car Mode doesn’t add any new functionality to Amazon Music, however its progressions to the UI could make it simpler to switch songs or jump into a new playlist without removing your consideration from the street. Like Spotify’s own take on simplified car controls, Amazon Music can be set to switch to Car Mode when it perceives your phone interfacing with your car’s Bluetooth. For anybody with a older car, Car Mode can likewise be enabled in settings.
Amazon Music probably won’t be just about as well known as Spotify or Apple Music — it’s on its way with more than 55 million subscribers as of January 2020 — however for a developing service that is quite simple to attempt in case you’re now have an Amazon Prime subscription, any new feature has the likelihood to help a many individuals. Car Mode is accessible in Amazon Music now on iOS and Android.
