READ NEXT:Spotify builds streaming lead at 60 million subscribers Spotify's launch on Xbox One means the music streaming service is now available on both major games consoles.

Not all developers have the resources to pour into a quality soundtrack and in the rare instance that a game ships with a great track listing, it's likely that you'll simply get exhausted of hearing the same songs time and again.

On Xbox One, as you will see in the gallery images, it is a much cleaner interface focused on the music, playlists, and discovery features.


Rumors that Spotify would soon arrive on Xbox One started spreading last week when users spotted Microsoft's Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, testing the app. You can use Spotify Connect in the phone app to pick and choose songs without having to leave the game you're playing. Players will be able to add their favorite games and best friends to the home screen through the new Add to Home option that appears when pressing the Menu button. It also includes a special selection of curated "Gaming" playlists for background listening during long play sessions. If you want to avoid the ads you can upgrade to Spotify Premium for $9.99/£9.99.

Spotify should be available in 34 markets today on Xbox One, including the United Kingdom, U.S., Germany, and France.

The first thing that Xbox One Insiders will notice upon installing the update is the new Xbox One home screen, created to focus on "speed, customization, and expression". All you have to do is download the Spotify app from the Xbox store and then you should be good to go. Changes will also be visible in the game hubs, profiles and clubs, making it easier to navigate and follow.
