Android will soon let you switch between Spotify Connect speakers from the lock screen
Android 13 introduced a new way to switch audio playback between wireless speakers using the new lock screen widget and updated notification. Currently it works for YouTube and YouTube Music, but Google and Spotify have just announced that they’re working together to enable it for Spotify Connect devices as well.
Google’s team is also working to make this feature smarter and make it easier to move between different locations that have different speakers. Imagine you start listening to a podcast in your car. Once you arrive at your destination and get out of the car, a notification will appear allowing you to quickly switch to listening with headphones. Then, when you return home, the same notification will pop up again, offering to switch to your TV or a speaker.
Smart notifications are coming to Android to help you easily switch music playback
The technology that makes this work has three layers. First, your phone will detect which devices are near you using Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and UWB. The second layer will recognize the capabilities of these devices to determine which one is best suited for the content you are reading. The third and final layer will adjust how the entire system works based on your interactions with these devices.
