Most radio listening happens in the car, and it looks like Spotify is out to kill that medium.
The company has today introduced a new feature called Your Daily Drive. It is a new Spotify playlist that combines the very best of news talk shows, including the relevancy and personality of the hosts, with the best of audio streaming (on demand, personalized playing and discovery) – all put together in a seamless and unified listening experience.
Available in the USA, the ever-updating playlist includes:
- Short-form podcast news updates from Wall Street Journal, NPR, and PRI
- 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
The feature only misses a beat by not including weather and traffic news, but surely these could be added using personalized technological solutions.
Americans users can make the most of the 70 billion hours they spend behind the wheel each year by tuning-in to Your Daily Drive starting today. Find it in the new Driving Hub here.
