OK, Playing Your Own Music In An Uber Is Actually Pretty Neat

Earlier this week amidst an ethical and public relations catastrophe, Uber announced new Spotify integration that lets you play music of your choice on the ride-sharing service. Uber just let me take it for a spin, and it’s admittedly a nice touch for the Uber riders of the world.


Google Just Gave You A Good Reason To Quit Spotify With Its New Streaming Service

Taylor Swift Says Spotify Pays Out Way Less Than It Claims

First, Taylor Swift and her management pulled the singer’s music from Spotify over claims of paltry royalty payments. Then Spotify struck back, explaining its royalty pay outs were actually quite large. Now, Swift is questioning Spotify’s numbers.


Spotify And Big Machine Can't Agree On How Much Taylor Swift Was Paid

The feud between Spotify and Taylor Swift has escalated slightly, due to a disagreement over what the artist was actually paid. The streaming service has come out with expected earnings for a high profile artist such as Swift, but Big Machine, the label managing Swift’s streaming deal, has its own numbers — and there’s a big discrepancy.


Spotify To Taylor Swift: We're Not Screwing You Over, Record Labels Are
