But if you’ve ever linked your iPhone to your car via Bluetooth before, then you’ve unquestionably witnessed Spotify’s simplified Now Playing interface.
Even if you’re not driving, this Now Playing interface may be preferred in some cases because it’s easier to operate whether you’re distracted or not. A newly released and free jailbreak tweak dubbed Spotify Car Mode Emulation by iOS developer aesthyrica can force your Spotify app to show this Now Playing interface all the time, whether you’re connected to a car via Bluetooth or not.
As shown in the screenshot examples above, Spotify’s car-centric Now Playing interface brings a nicer experience to your fingertips because it emphasizes all the most important controls and makes them appear larger and easier to tap at a glance. Whether you spent a lot of your time operating your phone while walking or you’re just easily distracted, this Now Playing interface is perfect because it’s pretty difficult to miss your tap target.
Spotify Car Mode Emulation enables the option to turn on car mode emulation from the Spotify Music app itself, so you consequently won’t find any options to configure in the Settings app post-installation.
Other options apart from enable car mode emulation include starting car mode automatically and keeping the app open your screen.
If you’re interested in using this Now Playing experience in your Spotify Music app at all times over the original Now Playing interface, then you can download Spotify Car Mode Emulation for free from the Packix repository via your favorite package manager. Spotify Car Mode Emulation supports jailbroken iOS 12 and 13 devices with Spotify version 8.5.68 or later installed.
