Spotify is an online music service that you can listen to on any of your devices, whether you’re at a PC or using your Android or iOS device. It’s a truly cross-platform internet service. So introducing hardware to run Spotify sounds like a strange move, right?
The company may be planning to do just that, as job listings on the site show that Spotify is looking for people focused on hardware and voice recognition for devices outside of Android and iOS.
One of the job listings was a senior product manager for hardware, though this listing was removed. It referenced the Amazon Echo and the Snap Spectacles as software companies that pushed out hardware.
It remains to be seen if the company can make hardware that people will actually want to use for music over their phones. Maybe a dedicated wearable is feasible, though it’s hard to say. What kind of hardware do you want to see from Spotify? Leave a comment!
