Waze and Spotify one-tap integration now rolling out on iOS

Earlier this year, Waze brought Spotify integration to its Android app. Starting today, the popular map service is bringing its Spotify integration to iOS as well.

Waze detailed the update to its Spotify partnership in a blog post. The new feature is designed to make it easier to listen to your favorite music while using navigation. The Spotify integration means you don’t have to switch apps to change and access your favorite tunes while using Waze.

Here’s how Waze describes the benefits of the new feature:

Waze also notes that with safety in mind, browsing Spotify is blocked while driving (although it’s optional for passengers). The company has also released two new Spotify playlists to go along with the rollout of the new (to iOS) feature.

Follow “Driving Through the Years for US hits (in English) and the “Carrokê for Brazilian tunes (in Portuguese) and enjoy a hot new soundtrack that’ll make today’s commute a little livelier (and more fun).

The update will automatically be available to users starting today who have the latest Waze and Spotify apps, and will roll out over the “next few weeks.”

Waze and Spotify are both free downloads from the App Store.
