“Pandora is delivering the perfect music experience for both Uber drivers and riders,” said Nick Marcantonio, senior product manager, Pandora. “Effortless, personalized and elegantly integrated into the app, the Pandora-Uber solution will transform the in-car listening experience.”
“Many drivers already use music to get their day started on the right note, but it can be challenging to find high quality music that both drivers and riders love—without radio ads and interruptions to the music. This integration, which will allow drivers to play music on Pandora from directly within the Uber app, will make it easier for drivers and riders to listen to the music they love,” said Bob Cowherd, senior product manager for music and media, Uber.
With Pandora available directly within the Uber driver app in the US, Australia, and New Zealand, there will be a whole new class of music lovers listening and engaging throughout their day. And coming soon, riders will be able to personalize their experience when they are on an Uber trip.
