You can use it with a free or premium account
Spotify has been a nice feature to have on PlayStation 4, albeit one I usually forget is available. Now, after way too long, the music-streaming service has come to Xbox One. Today’s the day.
Feature-wise, it’s about what you’d expect:
- Play music in the background while gaming.
- Browse playlists from different genres and moods. Or check out new releases.
- Play your own playlists or songs from Your Music.
- Search for any song, album, or playlist.
- Use Spotify Connect to control the music from your mobile device.
Background playback is great for the right type of game — open-world, racing, anything with repetition or grinding — but those are about the only times I end up using it. I need my audio cues!
