  2. Open up the Uber app at 2 pm on Friday, November 21.
  3. Request the special vehicle option. Tap the music bar and choose a song from any of your Spotify playlists while you wait for your Uber to arrive.
  4. If your ride is confirmed, you and as many of your friends that can safely fit will be some of the first to experience the new Spotify-enabled Uber. And if you’re really lucky, get ready for the ride of your life with Diplo!
