Spotify and Uber appear to have added a new way to annoy your taxi driver with a partnership that allows Spotify users to choose the music that plays in the taxi firm’s cars.
Soon users that connect their Spotify and Uber apps will be able to select music from either featured Uber playlists or their own ones on Spotify within the Uber app, or pick tunes from via the Spotify app.
The service will launch on 21 November in 10 cities around the world – London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney and Toronto.
Clearly my musical taste is perfect (as I’m sure is yours), and the promise that “when your ride arrives, your tunes will be playing on the speakers” is kind of … interesting.
But are you paying for a driver to drive, or to listen to your ‘perfect’ music?
