Spotify Launches on Xbox One With Curated Gaming Playlists

Spotify Launches on Xbox One With Curated Gaming Playlists

You can find the Spotify app in the Entertainment menu of your Xbox One under "All apps". The updated version will be open for the masses towards the end of this year.

The previous major Xbox One interface design sped things up for the console's OS and moved things around while adding some missing features, but it still was nonsensical in its design in where buttons are laid out and how many steps it can take to accomplish simple tasks. The controller now works quicker for the user when it comes to switching sections. It allows the Xbox One to be used as a viable media centre for existing Spotify subscribers.

Further, Ybarra said that fans have long asked about customizable features, and therefore, the new updates will give fans just that, notes Thurrott. Just do not forget to turn off the in-game music. Players will also be able to customize their home pages using the custom "Content blocks". "Sign-in, Achievements, multiplayer (including parties, Looking for Group, and tournaments), people, Home and recent, messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center (including settings) also each have their own tab in the new guide". Changes will also be visible in the game hubs, profiles and clubs, making it easier to navigate and follow.




Along with that, the Game Bar will receive other updates. Xbox gamers will get full access to the Spotify catalog, including the ability to use Spotify as a source of background music, with the added bonus of being able to control Spotify for Xbox from the associated mobile and PC apps.

In a blog post on Xbox Wire, Spotify Product Director Mikael Ericsson made the announcement of the popular music service's availability, which should arrive at some point today.
