The Verge reports that the streaming platform is launching a new playlist aimed at commuters called Your Daily Drive, which combines a personalized music playlist with short-form updates from news podcasts. Spotify most recently noted that Americans spend 70 billion hours behind the wheel each year, with a huge percentage of it spent commuting to and from work or school.
The tabs in the Music section are Playlists, Artists and Albums. "It combines music you love with relevant, timely world updates from reputable sources -- all put together in a seamless and unified listening experience".More news: Influencers are using Chernobyl for Instagram likes
From today, Spotify Premium users with the latest version of the streaming music app may notice a refreshed and reimagined "Your Library" section that's been created to get you to your music and podcasts faster.
A personalised-yet-effortless playlist to replace the unpredictable-and sometimes questionable-taste of radio stations would be nice. (I'm looking at you, Havana by Camilla Cabello). While Spotify says it considers "relevancy and personality of the hosts" in picking podcasts, length is an issue to consider.More news: Taylor Swift - "You Need To Calm Down"
"Escape from toggling between multiple stations to avoid music that isn't quite your speed", Spotify wrote in a Wednesday blog post announcing the new feature, which launched today for all US users.
The Episodes tab allows you to quickly find new episodes or resume podcasts you're listening to and further down the list you'll find new episodes of podcasts you follow.More news: No hidden agenda in F1 stewards' decision, says Brawn
