Spotify has touched down on Microsoft's Xbox One, opening up the service to millions of gamers, allowing them to alter the soundtracks of their favourite titles. You can also use your smart devices to switch between tracks or change songs while playing your games on Spotify Connect.

The app works with the free and premium versions of Spotify.

All this and more is available on the latest Xbox update released to Insiders yesterday. Players will be able to add their favorite games and best friends to the home screen through the new Add to Home option that appears when pressing the Menu button. Spotify's Xbox One features the same user-interface as it's Android TV and PlayStation 4 apps. It also includes a special selection of curated "Gaming" playlists for background listening during long play sessions. To celebrate the official launch, Hyrb created his own playlist for gamers to enjoy; check it out here.
