How to Reset Spotify Car Thing

February 29, 2024

If you've been using spotify car thing for a while, you might find that the device has stopped working. If this happens, it might be time to factory reset the device. To do this, go to the settings menu on the app and then tap 'Settings'. From here, you can change the device name and reset the microphone and other settings.

Spotify Car Thing is a great way to bring music and podcasts into the car. It's easy to use, comes with a mount, and is backed by a great company. However, it's only for Spotify users and requires a subscription, which seriously limits its usefulness. Luckily, there are many other options for drivers who want to play media while driving, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

This week, Spotify announced new updates for Car Thing that will add even more functionality to the device. In addition to a night mode that dims the screen brightness and more preset buttons, the update will also allow you to answer phone calls with your voice. While it's nice to be able to talk on the phone hands-free while driving, this feature still doesn't make Car Thing a must-buy for anyone who doesn't already have a car with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto built in. It is, after all, a remote control for your smartphone that requires cellular data and a Spotify Premium account. For far less money, a simple smartphone mount will give you similar functionality.
