Spotify had made it known on Friday that it’s partnering with Runkeeper and more is in an attempt to deeply integrate its own Spotify Running features into the popular fitness application. The Popular music streaming service alongside RunKeeper already offers playlist integration but now, by selecting Spotify as the app’s music source, users can leverage the music streaming service pace-matching algorithms as well.
This new feature is not yet available in Android platforms but already available on iOS platforms although you will need Premium account to access these features.
The most incredible part is basically the same functionality gat Runkeeper’s own DJ feature used to offer.
RunKeeper DJ debuted last summer, shortly after Spotify announced Running.
Still, Spotify integration has been “Hands-down of our mist frequently asked questions over the years.” based in a Runkeeper’s announcement post proclaimed.
And in the face of overwhelming customer demand, the running app maker appears to be forgoing its in-house beat-matching service in favor of Spotify’s.
