Spotify is one of the leading audio streaming companies in the world. It brings music and podcasts right to the users’ ears and is now ready to help them make the most of their daily commute.
A lot of users tune in to Spotify on their daily car commute, so it makes sense that the company wants to position itself as a picture-perfect alternative to radio.
In a step towards this goal, Spotify debuted a new ‘Your Daily Drive’ playlist that gives you a mix of your favorite music and short news talk shows.
Presently, the playlist is only available to American users since it consists of US-centered news podcasts. Along with these short, informative transmissions, the new experience also comprises a mix of your favorite music and tracks Spotify thinks you might like, just as in its Discover playlists.
All shows and songs are put together in a seamless and unified listening experience. American users can get revved up for a personalized audio feed that blends music and news in one place for the perfect commute experience, with a playlist that includes:
- Short podcast news updates from Wall Street Journal, NPR, and
- A mix of your favorite songs and artists interspersed with tracks you’ve yet to discover.
- Updates throughout the day to keep both the music and news fresh.
- An escape from toggling between multiple stations to avoid music that isn’t quite your speed.
