REPORT: Uber To Announce Spotify Partnership

Uber will announce a partnership with Spotify on Monday, reports The New York Times’ Mike Issac.

The partnership will reportedly let Uber customers listen to music from their own Spotify playlists after they order and get in their vehicle.

The technical details of how Uber and Spotify intend to accomplish that feature remain unclear.
