Background music is coming to Xbox One, but not anytime soon



In case you weren’t aware, fans have been asking for the ability to play background music on the Xbox One since launch, and we haven’t gotten many updates in regards to its availability. Last year Microsoft said it was too busy working on other things and didn’t prioritize it, and it seems like that’s the case this year too. When asked by a fan, Phil Spencer replied “won’t be before the summer, sorry to say.” So it is being worked on, it just won’t come anytime soon.

It’s not a huge dealbreaker for me, but I know a lot of people care about it.
