Spotify and Uber might launch a collab as soon as Monday -- one that'll have you jamming to your favorite tunes with the service's drivers. According to TechCrunch, the ride-sharing company's iPhone and Android apps will soon come with the capability to blast your Spotify playlists through an Uber car's speakers. The publication has obtained two screenshots (embedded after the break) captured from within an Uber app: the first asks drivers if their cars support auxiliary audio input. That's because they need to connect their Uber-issued phones with their vehicles' stereos for customers to be able to take advantage of the Spotify integration. On the other hand, the second screenshot shows what passengers will see on their screens. The passenger's interface apparently features a music console that shows song titles and artists, along with pause and play buttons, superimposed on a map.

Uber itself has already given out a couple of clues, including sending invites to an event on Monday morning. That invitation, which features a musical notes graphic, is for the launch of a "first-of-its-kind" partnership. Also, the two companies released some sort of a French video ad 10 months ago, showing a passenger banging his head to his own playlist streaming through an Uber's sound system.
