In addition to being able to play music on the Xbox One, users will also be able to use Spotify on their mobile devices to control the music that's being played on their Xbox which is very handy.

"For some time now, Xbox gamers have been telling us that they'd like to be able to soundtrack their own gaming sessions using Spotify, to make every single session feel new and unique", Spotify's Platform and Partner Experience Product Director, Mikael Ericsson, wrote in a Tuesday Xbox Wire post.

The app, which has always been available on PlayStation 4, enables users to play music in the background while gaming.

Today Microsoft and Spotify announced the availability of the service on the companies gaming and entertainment console for all users.

In terms of selecting music or building a playlist, it can either be done on the console itself via the Spotify app or from your phone, tablet, or laptop using the Spotify Connect feature. 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. Furthermore, users can create personalised soundtracks for each game, elevating how much input players have with their favourite titles. This is very similar to the capabilities that Microsoft's own Groove Music app has on the Xbox One.

You also dont have to control Spotify from your console if you dont want to. You can find more info about the new app on Spotify's website here and here. Changes will also be visible in the game hubs, profiles and clubs, making it easier to navigate and follow. It allows the Xbox One to be used as a viable media centre for existing Spotify subscribers.
