Spotify for Xbox One updated with Cortana integration, music recommendations and more

Microsoft today announced the availability of updated Spotify app on Xbox One. This Spotify app update now comes with Cortana integration, refined design, music recommendations and more.

With Cortana integration (only in the US), you can now say “Hey Cortana, play my playlist on Spotify” to start your playlist. You can also skip and pause songs without leaving your game.

The new improved experience makes it easier to access your recently played songs, ‘Made for You’ hub, and the library. When you login with your Spotify account, you can instantly start the music via the Spotify App in the Xbox One Guide and access features like shuffle and repeat for those hours-long gaming sessions. There’s a new Spotify ‘Gaming Hub’ which includes curated playlists just for gaming, like Hip Hop Controller, RetroWave / Outrun, and Bass Arcade, plus beloved OSTs.
