AirBnB is offering a new feature to simplify access for users. Hosts will be able to send their guests smart lock codes through the AirBnB app. Those codes will be activated when guests arrive, then de-activated when they leave.
Finally, Spotify’s premium users can now stream 15 hours of free audiobook content per month, as part of their subscription. That amount of free streaming should cover two audiobooks. Spotify says its catalog is about 200-thousand books, but not all of them eligible for free streaming.
