It looks like you might be listening to your Spotify library on your Xbox One before long. Clearly, the app is in testing at this point in time, but it's nice to see that it's far enough along for Major Nelson to be using it on one of his personal consoles. "I'm thrilled today to introduce a new music destination called PlayStation Music, with Spotify as the exclusive partner", Sony's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Head of PlayStation Network, Eric Lempel, said.
For those unfamiliar with Spotify, at least on consoles, the application is a popular and premium music streaming app. 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.
Xbox's Major Nelson has practically confirmed the imminent arrival of Spotify, closing a major app gap between the Xbox One and the PlayStation 4. Oh, you wanted more games huh?
Cross-platform play is an increasingly hot topic in video games lately, and now Xbox and Windows VP Mike Ybarra is returning to the fray to encourage the topic to stay hot. Well, now we have the first official acknowledgement of "Spotify Music - for Xbox One". The app also seamlessly integrates into the PlayStation 4's quick menu overlay, which we expect would function similarly on the Xbox One.
