Uber Drivers Are Worried This New Spotify Deal Is Going To Ruin Their Ratings

Uber is expected to announce a new partnership with music-streaming service Spotify on Monday - and Uber drivers aren't happy.

The problem is, in order to play the music through the car's speakers, Uber drivers will reportedly plug their work phones into their car's speakers using an auxillary port, which only exists in more modern cars.

Uber drivers have already taken to UberPeople.net, a forum for Uber drivers, to complain about this new feature, worried about receiving one-star reviews from customers if anything goes wrong.

Basically, Uber drivers are concerned the partnership will raise customers' expectations of what an Uber trip should be. Instead of a simple taxi ride, customers could come to expect Uber drivers to play DJ, and since not all cars are equipped with modern technology for this to work, drivers are concerned that this will result in unfair one-star reviews.

Surely Indian people would like such feature but desi beats and some honey singh would be the need of the hour, since the classic music has been laid to rest, thanks to our upgraded preferences ;)
