Uber recently announced a major upgrade to it’s app that is sure to make their users happy. Users will now be able to control what music is playing during their rides after Uber announced a new partnership with Spotify. Uber has already begun to update their app and has asked their drivers to update their car information by asking them if their car has an aux input.
Now the riders will be unable to use their own cell phone, rather they will be given an Uber supplied cell phone to play the music. The user interface shows the song title and artist of the music being played, as well as allowing users to pause, skip, rewind, and choose to shuffle tracks in a playlist.
The official announcement for the partnership won’t happen until Monday. Uber sent out press invites for a conference with the CEO for Uber and a “special guest.” According to TechCrunch, the special guest will definitely be someone from Spotify. Spotify already has over 50 million users, but has been looking into how they can gain more users outside of the Spotify app. This partnership with Uber seems to be a genius way of accomplishing this goal by allowing people who may not be familiar with the company to use their app when riding around town. None of this is ‘confirmed’ but we will update the post when more information becomes available after the press conference.
