Uber is a ride-sharing app that makes your journey easier and faster than ever. In 2014, Uber claimed partnership with one of the most influential music streaming services Spotify, users can play songs from Spotify while they're using Uber on their phone.

But as the scandal of Uber keeps mounting, they seem to have removed the integration on their mobile phone apps. But no worry, we've got you covered.

In the following parts, we're going to show you how to connect Uber to Spotify and a trick to play Spotify on Uber without Premium.

Part 1. How to Use Uber Spotify Integration
Part 2. Play Spotify in the Car without Uber Integration

How to Use Uber Spotify Integration

To use Spotify in Uber, make sure that you have both apps installed on your phone. And in order to play Spotify songs on Uber, you'll have to subscribe to Spotify Premium in advance. Here's how to connect Spotify to Uber:

1. Open the Uber app on your phone and go to your Uber app's profile page.

2. Tap Connect Spotify.

3. Request a ride and when you're assigned a driver, you'll be able to see a Music bar at the bottom Uber screen if the driver also has Spotify set up.

4. You'll be able to access your own Spotify playlists. And once you select a song, the song will be played in the car through your phone when the ride starts.

5. If you want to play songs that are outside of your personal playlists, tap the Spotify shortcut button in the Music bar. Then you'll be navigated to the Spotify app where you can search and play any song you want in the car.

If you're the driver, here's how you can set up your Uber for Spotify:

1. Start whatever music you wish in Spotify.

2. Go back to the driver app.

3. If the app kills the music, swipe for on screen music controls and resume playing.

4. It will now play with the app open and let your passenger know you have Spotify.

5. Once a ride has begun, the passenger can take over from their device and the nav screen will display "rider controlling music."

But Spotify has Ended Partnership with Uber

According to The Verge, Spotify decided not to participate in a press campaign about an update to the Uber app. In an internal company-wide email of Spotify, the head of product refers to the discussion about ending Uber's API access, "For me, given the views I've shared with you regarding Uber and the practices that have been on display there recently, even staying on Uber is not a straightforward decision."

Now when you open the Uber app, there's no more Spotify option on your profile page. But is there another way to play Spotify in the car?

Play Spotify in the Car without Uber Integration

Since Uber users can no longer play Spotify within the app, the only way to listen to Spotify songs in the car is to stream directly through the car audio system.

There're many options to play Spotify in the car, but most of them require an internet connection. When you're out of service, the song may stop in the middle which is not what we'll expect to see.
