Introducing Spotify’s New and Improved Experience on Xbox One

With Spotify, it’s easy to find the right music for every moment, whether you’re working out, partying, or gaming.

Gamers know the importance of having the perfect soundtrack to match what they’re playing – everything from the most elusive psychedelic trance for unlocking that new realm, to high-paced hip-hop for battling the horde, and classic anthems reserved for ultimately taking that final victory.

Today, we’re excited to announce that listening to your favorite songs, playlists, and artists while you play on Xbox One just got a lot better. Spotify is introducing an improved experience making it easier to find the perfect soundtrack, including recommended music based on your listening, and an integration with Cortana voice commands for even more seamless control while you play – all captured in a new razor sharp design.

“Hey Cortana, play my Discover Weekly on Spotify”

Never lose a beat with the new Spotify integration with Cortana (currently only available in the US). Simply say “Hey Cortana, play my playlist on Spotify”, allowing for seamless voice control of your music without taking your fingers off the controller or pausing your play. You can also play, skip and pause songs – all without leaving the game!

Easier access—easier discovery

The updated experience with Spotify makes accessing your recently played songs, your ‘Made for You’ hub, and your library easier than ever before. Once logged in, Spotify listeners can instantly start the music via the Spotify App in the Xbox One Guide and enjoy additional features like shuffle and repeat for those hours-long gaming sessions.

Not sure where to start? No worries, we’ve got you. Head over to Spotify’s ‘Gaming Hub’ filled with curated playlists just for gaming, like Hip Hop Controller, RetroWave / Outrun, and Bass Arcade, plus beloved OSTs.

Make sure you get the latest version of the Spotify app or download it from the Microsoft Store to get your updated gaming experience.
