Spotify introducing news to its playlists
Jun 12, 2019
Spotify announced the launch of Your Daily Drive, a playlist that will introduce a news article between each played song. The newsfeed will be provided by Wall Street Journal, Public Radio International and NPR that will become part of the audio clips. The playlist will be updated alongside the Your Daily Mix playlist which will be created according to the pattern input by the listener. News podcasts will also be a part of the update which will give them more space in the platform to be promoted. Spotify had previously announced the invention of the Car Thing, a piece of hardware meant to analyze data from drivers; the news playlist is expected to be incorporated in the gadget.
