A Wild Spotify Appears on Xbox One

Dashboard and Apps News Xbox One Xbox One S

After many years in the wilderness, Spotify has arrived on Xbox. Along with custom music on your Xbox, an integration that was sorely missing from Microsoft’s flagship console for some time, you can now stream from Spotify whilst playing your favourite games on Xbox.  Click to download!

Major Nelson has covered the basics over on his blog, with the following standing out to me:

  • App and background play is there for both Free or Premium Spotify subscribers
  • Control your music via Spotify Connect, so you don’t have to interrupt that clutch spree on Gears 4!

I, for one, will be looking forward to seeing what playlists are out there on the Xbox Game Hub! I am always on the lookout for something fresh.

I am a father, a husband and a spartan. I started out gaming as a blue hedgehog, then I traded in my racing shoes for a gender-neutral space suit. From there it was a blur, I lived through fantasies that were not so final, landed on universe ending rings, and more recently I have defended Azeroth from Orcs. Lots. Of. Orcs. Oh, also, whose foot prints are these?

    This has been a long time coming. While I wouldn’t be interested in using this with about 90% of the games I play, this could be handy while playing some Forza Horizon (after getting tired of the in-game tunes) or some online FPS multiplayer games like Battlefield.
