Spotify is finally available on Xbox One

Xbox One Spotify arrives on Xbox Live as Microsoft revamps Xbox dashboard with 'Fluent Design'
Lucas Bell | 09 August, 2017, 00:29

The release of the Spotify app means that Xbox One owners can now play music and podcasts from their Spotify library while they game on their console. The team has worked hard, and we hope you enjoy these latest updates to your Xbox One experience!

Spotify's Xbox One app also works for both Free and Premium subscribers, but users with Premium will obviously get access to the usual premium features, including high-quality music streaming and an ad-free experience.

To make life even easier, users are also able to control the app via their phone, too, so long as your Xbox and smartphone are on the same Wi-Fi network, using Spotify's connect iOS and Android apps. The release comes over two years after Sony released a Spotify app for the PlayStation 4, through an exclusivity deal that locked Microsoft out of offering a similar choice. Players will have the ability to customise this Dashboard with their favourite items from Apps to Games to Hubs.

Browse playlists from different genres and moods. Alternatively, you can choose to play an album or playlist from your existing saved collection.

With the launch of Spotify, Microsoft has gained a crucial feature previously exclusive to Sony's console.

To install the app, simply turn on your Xbox One, download the "Spotify Music - for Xbox" app on your console, and log in or create a Spotify account.

To celebrate the occasion, Spotify is also launching a new curated playlist from Microsoft exec Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson.
