Spotify to release Xbox One app soon

There's no word yet on an official release window for the Xbox One Spotify app, but you can probably expect the ability listen to all your Discovery Weekly playlists and Daily Mixes on Xbox soon. Hopefully, the Spotify Xbox app will also allow users access to the background streaming functionality so they can enjoy their Spotify Music playlists while playing their favourite Xbox One games.

Sources and evidence corroborate that internal testing for an Xbox Spotify app is now underway- implying that the app may be close to completion, and therefore, release. Those sources say that the app is now undergoing internal testing, which meshes nicely with what we say from Major Nelson.

Evidence is mounting that music streaming service Spotify may finally be heading to Xbox One. It likely has something to do with Microsoft's efforts with Groove Music.

It seems likely Microsoft realized that shutting Spotify out of the platform isn't going to significantly contribute to Groove's growth, and meanwhile not having Spotify is a possible competitive disadvantage when potential customers are deciding between an Xbox and PlayStation purchase.

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. Look for more details before then - stay tuned.
