Xbox One Spotify App Finally On The Way

Clarence Schmidt | 06 August, 2017, 01:22

Microsoft added the ability to listen to background music while playing games to Xbox One a year ago - a move that revived hopes of an end to Sony and Spotify's exclusive relationship. Microsoft had pushed a lot of prospective partnerships and consumers away during the Mattrick-era policies, which originally included having to pay to access apps on the Xbox One. Pictures posted on Reddit show Microsoft's Major Nelson (Larry Hryb) testing the Spotify app in his status.

Of course, this is all speculation at this point based on a single image, but many users have long asked for Spotify to bring their service to the Xbox One console. Those sources say that the app is now undergoing internal testing, which meshes nicely with what we say from Major Nelson.

Have you been waiting for Spotify Music to come to the Xbox One?

Neymar Gives Press Conference After Decision on His Transfer to PSG
Neymar has the consolation of being well-compensated by his new team, to the tune of more than half a million dollars a week. And Neymar , used to playing in the comforting shadow of Messi at Barcelona , now will be his team's unquestioned superstar.

Though we have no idea what to expect from an Xbox One version of the Spotify app, we have some ideas based on how it works on the PlayStation 4. Of course, we hope it's the former, but that would likely represent a significant engineering effort Spotify may not be ready to jump into.

Today, Microsoft has actually revealed the first look of Spotify running on Xbox. The company's Phil Spencer also recently offered an update on Xbox One X preorders. Microsoft says you want them.
