Polestar adds Spotify Group Sessions to infotainment system

The Polestar 2 now features Spotify Group Sessions Beta incorporated within its built-in Spotify app. The functionality enables passengers in the vehicle who have Spotify Premium accounts to influence media in the car, without requiring the driver to manage playlists or queued songs – or log in and out of different accounts.

“We all know that sometimes the driver doesn’t have the best taste in music and my family tends to agree. The addition of Group Sessions Beta from Spotify is a great way for others in the vehicle to influence the playlist – and enjoy their favorite tracks,” commented Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO.

To join a group session, other users are able to scan a code from the Spotify app in the vehicle using the app on their smartphone. This links their device to the car’s app, and they can then queue songs, podcasts and playlists. The driver can revoke access at any time.
