Spotify announced Friday that the music streaming service is test driving some hardware. The company is trying to learn more about what you do and listen to in your car by publicly testing out a voice-controlled music and podcast device dubbed "Car Thing." The device reportedly plugs into your vehicle's 12-volt outlet, which is also known as a cigarette lighter, for power and the automotive gadget connects to your car and phone via Bluetooth. Don't make plans to go out and buy the device anytime soon, though. Spotify says it's only testing the devices, making them available to a few premium users.
