It seems everyone is tapping into the speaker market, and with Apple’s newly launched HomePod the pressure is on for Spotify to deliver its own!
According to a new report, Spotify is working on a line of “category defining” hardware products, with all signs pointing to a specially manufactured speaker.
Job ads over the past year have hinted that the streaming company hopes to produce innovative hardware in the same realm of the “Pebble Watch, Amazon Echo and Snapchat Spectacles.” One ad in particular seeking a senior product manager described the need to “define the product requirements for internet connected hardware [and] the software that powers it.”
Sounds like a Spotify Speaker is in the works!
The company is already the most popular paid streaming music service in the world, even over Apple Music. And with Apple not supporting Spotify playback on its HomePod or Apple Watch, it only makes sense for Spotify to tap into making its own listening device.
