Yesterday we heard about Facebook’s plans for a smart speaker and now it looks like there could be a new Spotify Smart Speaker in the works.
Spotify recently listed a new job role at the company for an operation manager for a hardware product, the jobs description is listed below.
“You will define and manage Distribution, Supply, Logistics, fulfillment and Customer Service for Hardware Products and work with partners to deliver the optimal Spotify experience to millions of users.”
Spotify relies on device from Google, Apple, Amazon and other manufacturers for its music streaming service so it would make sense for the company to release their one hardware device.
The company could do something similar to Apple, who recently launched their new HomePod with a focus on music. The Apple HomePod is priced more competively than other Apple products compared to what it costs to make.
Apple are making a smaller margin on the device, we presume in the hope to increase Apple music numbers. Spotify could do something similar and offer their hardware at a lower cost in order to increase it subscriber numbers.
As yet there is no confirmation that the company is working on a new Spotify Smart Speaker, as soon as we get some more details, we will let you guys know.
