You can officially control everything from your phone. You can already hail a cab, via the magic that is Uber, and stream unlimited music, thanks to Spotify. Now you can stream unlimited music on your Uber driver’s radio.
Yesterday, Spotify announced a new partnership with Uber that will allow premium Spotify users to control the music in participating drivers’ cars. This new service launches Friday in London, Los Angeles, Mexico City, Nashville, New York, San Francisco, Singapore, Stockholm, Sydney and Toronto, with continued launches to come in the following weeks.
Uber is so excited about this new launch that they are giving users in launch cities the chance for ride-alongs and live sessions with artists including Andrew W.K., The Same Willows, Ximena Sariñana, Ansiktet, Professor Green, Diplo (of the Spring Weekend fame) Matt and Kim, Ricki Lee, Kevin Drew, and Jake Owen.
So, if you’re going home to one of these cities for Thanksgiving and you need to catch an Uber, tell your driver to turn off the oldies. You’re the DJ now.
Check out how it works in this handy video:
Jam on, folks, and here’s hoping Uber/Spotify doesn’t forget about Prov.
