Spotify's new Supergrouper tool lets you create your dream team

Spotify is rolling out Supergrouper, a new feature for creating playlists and living out your supergroup fantasy.

The idea behind Supergrouper is for users to imagine what it would be like if their favorite musical artists came together to form one giant band. But Songs aren’t going to be melded together to form a new song as you might think -- Stairway to Heaven merged with Adele? No thanks. Instead, the feature is essentially just an easier way to create playlists without having to pull together songs one by one.

To create a playlist, you first have to go to the Supergrouper website on your mobile device. (Visit on a desktop or some other device and Spotify will just tell you to use your phone.) You can choose between three to five musical artists to make up the group.

From there, name your newly christened supergroup and share it on social media. And if you’re stuck on what to include in the playlist, Spotify has a randomizer button near the top that’ll throw in an artist based on the choices made. 

Supergrouper is currently available to users living in the US, UK, Australia, New Zealand, and the Philippines. We did ask Spotify if they have plans to expand support for the feature. A representative for the company told TechRadar they're sticking to those five countries for now.

New community features

The addition of Supergrouper is really a continuation of Spotify’s efforts to roll out more personalization features. On June 23, the platform replaced its Concert Hub section with the Live Events Feed. It allows music fans to find concerts and other live events happening in their local area according to their tastes. The platform states it’s teaming up with major ticketing partners, like Ticketmaster, to make the service work.

Spotify is also working on bringing the fan-favorite Community desktop feature to mobile. Currently it’s being tested, but according to the reports, Spotify Community is slated to be a new tab for the smartphone app. When it launches, the tab will display what songs your friends are streaming and let you listen to any newly created new playlists.

If you’re interested in seeing what else Spotify has been cooking up, TechRadar recently wrote about the new Karaoke mode on the mobile app. You don’t even have to be a premium member to start belting out the lyrics to your favorite song -- but you will need to update the app.

Uber Eats exits seven markets, transfers one as part of competitive retooling

Uber Eats is pulling out of a clutch of markets — shuttering its on-demand food offering in the Czech Republic, Egypt, Honduras, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Uruguay and Ukraine. It’s also transferring its Uber Eats business operations in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) to Careem, its wholly owned ride-hailing subsidiary that’s mostly focused on the Middle East. “Consumers and restaurants using the Uber Eats app in the UAE will be transitioned to the Careem platform in the coming weeks, after which the Uber Eats app will no longer be available,” it writes in a regulatory filing detailing the operational shifts. “These decisions were made as part of the Company’s ongoing strategy to be in first or second position in all Eats markets by leaning into investment in some countries while exiting others,” the filing adds. An Uber spokesman said the changes are not related to the coronavirus pandemic but rather related to an ongoing “strategy of record” for the company to hold a first or s

This popular open-source web server has some serious security flaws

OpenLiteSpeed Web Server, a globally popular open-source web server , was carrying a couple of high-severity vulnerabilities, experts have warned. Threat actors that managed to exploit these flaws would have been given full privilege remote code execution capabilities, noted researchers from Unit 42, Palo Alto Networks’ cybersecurity research arm.  The team found OpenLiteSpeed Web Server carried three high-severity vulnerabilities, namely CVE-2022-0073 (an 8.8 severity score, high-severity remote code execution flaw), CVE-2022-0074 (an 8.8 high-severity privilege escalation flaw), and CVE-2022-0072 (a 5.8, medium-severity directory traversal flaw). The vulnerabilities also affected the enterprise version, LiteSpeed Web Server. Patch ready Unit 42 has notified LiteSpeed Technologies of its findings which has, subsequently, patched the flaws, and released new versions of the server, urging users to update their software immediately.  Organizations using OpenLiteSpeed versions 1.5.1
