Tech, Yeah! Spotify and Uber Now Let You Create Personalized Playlists for Your Ride
Want to rock out to your favorite Ariana Grande song during your next Uber ride? Spotify will now make that possible. In a first-of-its-kind partnership, Spotify and Uber are coming together to pair on-demand rides with on-demand music, allowing you to create the ultimate personalized soundtrack for your ride.
Starting today, Uber and Spotify Premium users in 10 cities—London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney and Toronto—can play their favorite Spotify music right through the car speakers. The feature will then expand to other cities in the coming weeks.
So how does it work? It’s easy: connect your Spotify account via the Uber app, request a ride, and when you get matched up with a Spotify-enabled Uber, simply select music from any one of Uber’s featured playlists or one of your own Spotify playlists within the Uber app. You can also jump to the Spotify app and select music from within the Spotify catalogue. As a bonus, today (Nov. 21) fans in 10 global cities can help celebrate with the chance to win the ride of their life—either with an artist ride-along or exclusive live session.
