Now you can DJ your Uber ride with in-car Spotify streaming

Caitlin McGarry | Nov. 18, 2014
The best part of driving is the freedom to belt out tunes of your choosing. Uber CEO Travis Kalanick would rather you hail a car from his app than tool around town in your own set of wheels, so the company is partnering with Spotify to put control of Uber's sound system in your phone.

If you're using Uber on Android to hail a ride, the Spotify music experience won't be seamless yet. Instead of controlling the playlist within Uber, you'll have to jump over to Spotify and tap Now Playing > Connect > Uber Partner for your tunes to begin. Uber said an app update is coming soon to fix that.

Kalanick and Ek declined to disclose the financial terms of the deal. Click here for more details on which cities and musicians will be participating on launch day.
