Is Spotify finally coming to Xbox One?

Spotify is on its way to the Xbox One, new app now being tested

There've been a number of Spotify sightings in the last few days, but Major Nelson being caught using the app is the closest thing to a confirmation yet.

Earlier this week, screenshots of Microsoft's Larry "Major Nelson" Hryb testing the Spotify App for Xbox surfaced on the Xbox One Reddit. The company has made their app available on many devices including Android, iOS, Windows 10, and the PlayStation consoles (by way of PlayStation Music).

The image above comes from a Microsoft training website, which was then posted to the Xbox One subreddit - the highlighted language points to an upcoming Spotify app on the Xbox One.

- Spotify is planning to release an Xbox One app soon. Now, The Verge's sources have confirmed that the app is being tested internally at Microsoft.

Lawsuit alleges White House link in Seth Rich conspiracy
Spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says at a White House briefing Tuesday that, "The president had no knowledge of the story". But Wheeler went on FetchYourNews's YouTube show , and said on May 23, "With respect to the statement I put out yesterday".

It seems likely Microsoft realized that shutting Spotify out of the platform isn't going to significantly contribute to Groove's growth, and meanwhile not having Spotify is a possible competitive disadvantage when potential customers are deciding between an Xbox and PlayStation purchase.

Of note, Spotify isn't available on any Xbox platform - whether you're talking about Xbox 360 or Xbox One - thus far, nor has Microsoft or Spotify indicated that it's coming.

The Xbox One is a great game machine, but its multimedia features have been a huge advantage for many fans.
