Simply play your music on demand with your Xbox One controller, whether you are a free or a Premium Spotify user.

The great thing about the Xbox One version of the app, is that with both your mobile device (iOS or Android) and your console on the same Wi-Fi network you can use Spotify Connect and control/play your music from the mobile version of the app.

Word about a Spotify Music app for the Xbox came out already a couple days ago.

Spotify has touched down on Microsoft's Xbox One, opening up the service to millions of gamers, allowing them to alter the soundtracks of their favourite titles. You can use Spotify Connect to control your Xbox wirelessly from the app on your smart device or PC - a feature that works impressively well when I switch the current player from PC to phone almost seamlessly. 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.

All of your playlists and curated mixes will be available, as well as the browse and discovery features you're used to in other versions.


Play your own playlists or songs from Your Music.

The Community section has also been updated, and features a new Activity Feed layout, which lets you view more content all at once, and the comment window can now be expanded to a full-screen view.

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

Creating your personalized gaming soundtrack has never been easier.

The new dashboard looks to be much simpler adding content blocks akin to the Xbox 360 Dashboard.
