Spotify Finally Arrives on Xbox One

The app works with the free and premium versions of Spotify.

The rumors were true, gamers: Spotify has finally arrived on Xbox One.

"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. "Well, we have been listening."

Starting today, Spotify is available on the Xbox One in 32 markets around the world. Just download the Spotify app from the Xbox Store to start pumping your favorite jams during your next gaming session.

The app will let you play your saved music, search Spotify's full library of 30 million tracks, and browse "pre-curated gaming playlists" in the Gaming section using your Xbox One controller. You can also control playback on your Xbox wirelessly from the Spotify app on your phone, tablet, or desktop using Spotify Connect.
