Get lost in the music, not the road!

Spotify has teamed up with Google Maps for an easier way to navigate your journey and control your music on the go.

Just connect Google Maps to Spotify one of these two ways.

While in navigation: 

  1. Tap the bottom of the map screen (where it shows estimated time to destination). 
  2. Select Settings
  3. For iPhone/iPad, select Music playback controls
    For Android, select Show media playback controls.
  4. Select Spotify and accept the terms to connect your account.

Or, through Google Maps’ Settings:

  1. Open Google Maps.
  2. Open the main menu in the top-left.
  3. Select the gear icon for Settings
  4. Choose Navigation
  5. For iPhone/iPad, select Music playback controls
    For Android, select Show media playback controls.
  6. Select Spotify and accept the terms to connect your account. 
  7. Spotify will then be available while in an active navigation session.

Once connected, you’ll find music controls at the bottom of your navigation map. Tap the Spotify logo to browse more playing options.
