Spotify streaming music mobile demo for Android [Video]

Spotify, who provide a free music streaming service, have demonstrated their new mobile client on the T-Mobile G1.  The new Android app - which is yet to be released - allows tracks to be synchronized with the handset for offline playback, meaning that even without WiFi or cellular data music can be played back. The app also supports on-device searches and custom playlists, with straightforward access to the company's huge catalog of tracks.  It's also synchronized with their existing desktop app, meaning you can search for and add a track on the desktop and have it sync for offline playback on the cellphone. As a desktop Spotify user, this is just what I've been waiting for.  The company has previously said that they'd be requiring mobile users to sign up for their premium service (which cuts out the adverts that intermittently pop up for free account holders) and frankly this looks well worth it.  No word on when we could expect to see a release; they're promising more details at Google I/O.

Hyundai hands car dash to Android, Apple for device-based interface

Hyundai has made it known that Android Auto and Apple’s CarPlay will be very much central to how they imagine their cars’ dashboards in the near future, particularly starting in 2015. A new entertainment hub/display will be coming to the Korean car manufacturer’s vehicles that will be ditching the current standard CD player and onboard navigation.
