Spotify trip

Soundtrack your ride – a new feature from Spotify which allows you to generate a playlist for your trip based on your history and a small survey.

First you will have to pinpoint the beginning and end of your journey, then it calculates your route and length of your trip using Google Maps. Then a small quiz will appear asking 5 questions: who you are travelling with, car type, and your “drive vibe”. The other 2 questions are music related: favorite genre for the road (pop, rock, hip-hop / rap, country, indie, EDM, or “mood”).

You will then be asked to pick your “ultimate driving song” from 6 choices: Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” Vanessa Carlton’s “A Thousand Miles,” Jason Derulo’s “Ridin’ Solo,” Rascal Flatts’ “Life is a Highway,” Sam Hunt’s “Body Like a Back Road,” or “Sucker” by the Jonas Brothers.

Based on these parameters a playlist will be set specifically for your road trip. Sounds pretty cool if you ask us! Will have to try it out.
