Spotify has been available exclusively on PlayStation- in fact, by all appearances, it looked like Sony had sewn Spotify up in an exclusive partnership, much like Microsoft and HBO last generation. However, it seems like Spotify may finally be coming over to Xbox, too.
Sources and evidence corroborate that internal testing for an Xbox Spotify app is currently underway- implying that the app may be close to completion, and therefore, release. For instance, screenshots of Microsoft’s Larry ‘Major Nelson’ Hryb testing the Spotify App for Xbox were posted on the Xbox One Reddit earlier this week; shortly afterwards, a report on The Verge emerged, claiming that insider sources are confirming that a Spotify app is indeed incoming soon. Finally, a leaked screenshot from the Microsoft retail training portal seems to also confirm a Spotify Xbox One app.
Guys, where there is smoke, there is fire- and there’s a hell of a lot of smoke here for there to be no fire, know what I’m saying? Spotify has fast become for music what Netflix is for movies and TV- so it’s good to see that it will soon be available for a broader audience, and not be exclusive much longer.
