You can access Spotify on Google Maps by turning on the media playback controls on the Maps app. When connected, you will see the music controls at the bottom of the navigation map. This makes it easier for you to control your music while navigating your journey while on the road.
Spotify is an audio streaming service that allows its subscribers to access millions of songs and podcasts from all over the world. The free version will play ads between songs while the period version does not come with ads. Google Maps on the other hand is a web mapping service that shows you the direction to a particular place or a map of a certain area. Combining these two services will allow users to easily navigate their journey and control their music while on the go.
