Today Spotify announced the ability to track runs using Runkeeper while listening to Spotify. Integration should provide a smoother experience than swapping back and forth between the two apps.
Runners will continue to have access to their existing music libraries. Spotify's fitness-oriented experience also offers tailored playlists, Running Originals, and music that adjusts to your adrenaline level as you run.
All you will need to do is select Spotify as your source in the Runkeeper app. Once you've done so, you will be able to stream music knowing that Runkeeper is tracking your progress at the same time. It doesn't matter if you're a free or premium user.
The integration is live for iOS users today. Android support is coming soon. Hopefully, this time, runners won't have to wait so long.
