Spotify makes its Xbox One debut

Spotify for Xbox is Live Spotify arrives on Xbox Live as Microsoft revamps Xbox dashboard with 'Fluent Design'
Lori Graves | 09 August, 2017, 00:29

Load up the app on a supported device while using the Xbox One version, and you'll be able to control and load up music directly on the device.

Spotify users will also be getting access to some pre-curated playlists for gaming on the app. Spotify's Gaming section will feature a total of three pre-curated playlists for gamers, including Epic Gaming, Power Gaming, and a playlist from Xbox's own Major Nelson.

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. 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. It also includes a special selection of curated "Gaming" playlists for background listening during long play sessions. These blocks will change based on what you do, so if you put a specific game on your Home screen, it may display when your friends are playing that game, recommend which Achievement you should get next, etc. This is very similar to the capabilities that Microsoft's own Groove Music app has on the Xbox One.

Go to the Xbox Store on your Xbox One.

China, ASEAN Approve Draft South China Sea Code of Conduct
Wang made no reference to Beijing's reclamation activities, but said in a statement that "China is seeking cooperation with ASEAN for development in the South China Sea".

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

After the big Creator Update which introduced a much more "simpler" Xbox One Dashboard, it looks like things are changing again as a new update to the Xbox One dashboard is already rolling-out to Xbox Insiders right now.

Download and install the "Spotify Music - for Xbox" app. Changes will also be visible in the game hubs, profiles and clubs, making it easier to navigate and follow.
