[Android][Other] Connect Spotify to transportation apps

I would like there to be a collaboration between spotify & a transport service (Uber, DIDI, etc.). my idea is that at the time of requesting a trip you can access your list of favorite songs on spotify for when the driver arrives just at the moment of starting a trip your favorite songs are heard throughout the trip (the number of songs would vary according to distance & duration of the trip) This way you would avoid the part of having to link your device with the car or the typical talk of which station or type of music you prefer, it seems to me that that would give the transport service a plus.

I'm surprised this was marked as a new idea. alacransam_123, you may or may not be aware that Spotify did actually roll out integration with Uber. This was available for some time in limited cities and may or may not have gone from there, though I can't recall off the top of my head. However, this feature has since been removed; I'm not entirely sure why, though I suspect it was due to demand. I recall using it once before (I think in NYC?) and it being pretty cool, although somewhat dependent on compliance of the Uber driver given whether or not they themselves felt it was an intrusion.
