Amazon Music iOS and Android app has added a new feature called Car Mode in its app. It features a simplified interface with larger buttons and less text, making it easier to switch songs or dive into a new playlist without having to take your attention away from the road. When your smartphone is connected to a car via Bluetooth, the Car Mode will be automatically enabled.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are in-car assistant systems that let you access certain features of your phone, either through your infotainment system or through your phone interface. Either system you can do a variety of things like display turn by turn navigation, play music or check your messages using voice commands or by tapping buttons in your car. Plugging your phone into the infotainment system offers drivers both convenience and safety: fewer distractions and temptations to glance over at the phone while driving, and you can access some of your favorite apps from your phone, access your playlists and make hands-free calls.

Apple CarPlay: If you’re using an iPhone, you can use its CarPlay to enjoy Amazon music in the car. You should open Amazon app on your iPhone first, and then connect your iPhone and Automotive Infotainment System via a USB cable. Go to "Settings > General > CarPlay" on iPhone, and select your car stereo option.

Android Auto: If your phone is Android, launch the Amazon app on Android and connect the phone with the car system through a USB cable. After a successful connection, you can select the Amazon Music on the stereo display and listen to the desired music.

Most modern cars feature a 3.5mm auxiliary jack, either on the stereo unit or underneath it. This allows you to plug in a cable from your device's headphone port directly into your stereo. From there, simply play any audio on your phone that you'd like to hear through your car.

Auxiliary audio will sound clearer than both the cassette and FM transmitter options. Of course, this won't work (without an adapter) if your device doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack. But if both your car and phone have a stereo jack, it's a simple way to play audio without any fuss, as long as you don't mind a wire.

Step 1Connect your mobile device to your car's AUX port using a 1/8-inch-to-1/8-inch audio cable. Plug one end of the audio cable into the "headphone" port on your mobile device and the opposite end to the AUX port.

Step 2Press the "AUX" button on your car stereo or toggle the input button to select the "AUX" input.

Step 3Set the volume on your mobile device to about 50 percent, then start the device's music player. Control the master volume level using the car stereo's volume control.
