If you frequently use Uber to get from one destination to another, here’s some great news to brighten your Monday. The San Francisco-based ridesharing service is partnering with music streaming service Spotify. This means you’ll be able to listen to your Spotify playlist when riding in an Uber vehicle.
Customers will have the ability to connect their Spotify accounts to their Uber profiles. They can then request rides via the Uber app on their smartphones. If they get matched with a music-enabled Uber, a music bar will appear at the bottom of the app. They will then be able to see their playlists, and can control the music during the ride.
“The new Uber and Spotify integration, available to all Uber and Spotify Premium users on iOS and Android (in beta), starts rolling out on Friday, Nov. 21, in 10 launch cities,” Uber said in a blog post on Monday. “The integration will continue to roll out globally over the coming weeks.”
This is just one way the five-year-old car service is attempting to gain the edge over competitors like Gett and Lyft, two other ridesharing services available through smartphone apps. Uber is growing increasingly popular in metropolitan areas, and was named tech company of 2013 by USA Today.
