Integrating with Spotify was a strategic partnership that we brought to RunKeeper to provide more value for our users. The data team and UX researchers at RunKeeper discovered that there was a lot of user pain around going on a run. In short: Running is physically challenging and mentally boring.

Consulting and working in parallel with the Spotify API team as their first launch partner, we began developing an experience that encourages Premium Spotify users to connect their account to RunKeeper by allowing them to listen to their saved playlists. Taking it a step further, we included a collection of suggested playlists that Spotify and RunKeeper would be able to tailor to the user's workout needs.
