As an example of the sports integrations of the digital world, we conveyed to you the news that Netflix started to broadcast Nike Training Club lessons . According to the information conveyed by Netflix, Nike Training Club lessons will be added to the Netflix platform on December 30.
Now, a sports-oriented news came from Spotify. Accordingly, it has been reported that Spotify is working on a new feature that will integrate the iOS application into HealthKit. With this collaboration, users will be able to have exercise playlists based on health data.
HealthKit is an iOS API that allows third-party apps to access data in Apple’s Health app. According to what Chris Messina shared on Twitter, the code found in Spotify’s app indicates that HealthKit support will come soon. This integration will help Spotify allow the user to access information such as how much exercise they do each day, calories burned, and more.
According to 9to5Mac , every app that uses the HealthKit API has to ask users if they want to share their Health app data. This means that Spotify cannot collect such data if users do not want to share their data with the app. But let’s say the user chose to share all their data with Spotify, at that time it is unclear how exactly the company will use this data.
In addition to all this, Chris Messina also stated that the latest update to the Spotify app for iOS has a new page for managing paid subscriptions. The company has not yet made an official statement on the subject.
Spotify also updated the Apple Watch app in November. As a reminder, new updates allow users to swipe to like a song. To use the updated Apple Watch, people must have the latest version of Spotify’s iOS app.
