After Two Years Of PS4 Exclusivity, Xbox One Spotify App Launches Today

It was rumored last week that Spotify was finally coming to Xbox One, and today we received confirmation. The music-streaming app has officially launched on Microsoft’s console.

It’s been a long time coming, as Spotify went live on PS4 two years ago. However, it’s better late than never, and now Xbox One players can access their Spotify playlists while gaming, too. The Xbox One app works just like the PS4 app: you can leave it running in the background while playing games, essentially creating your own custom soundtrack. Just remember to turn off the in-game music.

The app is controllable through your phone, as long as it’s connected to the same Wi-Fi network. You can use Spotify Connect in the phone app to pick and choose songs without having to leave the game you’re playing.

To mark the occasion, Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb shared a playlist that he personally curated. It’s full of Game of Thrones music, Kygo, and Phil Collins. Check it out here. You can download Spotify to your console from the Xbox Store.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
