Spotify is coming to Xbox One

Spotify is coming to Xbox One”

Sony and Spotify signed an exclusive deal to bring Spotify to the PS4 back in 2015, resulting in the culling of the Music Unlimited service and the launching of the PlayStation Music hub, where the Spotify app resides to this day.

Another Reddit user also spotted an article on the Microsoft retail partner training portal which also teased that the app will be coming to Xbox saying "This week, Microsoft announced huge news that impacts more than one of those devices".

Streaming music service Spotify should finally make its way to Microsoft's Xbox One sometime soon, as a report from The Verge confirms user posts from Reddit that a beta version of the app is being tested internally at Xbox. Microsoft still operates Groove Music, which began life as Xbox Music in 2012, but Spotify has the clear advantage in terms of subscriber reach. Microsoft hasn't made any official public announcement regarding the supposed leaks.

The Verge states that they have sources familiar with Spotify and Microsoft's plans who have confirmed that the app is now being tested internally.

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.
