Microsoft have announced that another huge update is coming to the Xbox One that'll once again change the dashboard with more customisation options.

Starting today, Spotify is available on Xbox One in 34 markets a href="https://open.spotify.com/user/spotify/playlist/37i9dQZF1DX6fyn6Oj4jJw" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer" *Major Nelson himself.

One of the cool features of Spotify on Xbox One will be that you can control what music is being played through your phone, laptop or tablet with Spotify Connect.

The upcoming Xbox One update will be bringing a new "look" and "feel" to the Home screen on the Xbox.

Creating your personalized gaming soundtrack has never been easier. Microsoft has also updated Clubs, Profiles and Game Hubs to make them more dynamic, and is improving Club discovery, allowing you to quickly view your Clubs and search for new ones to join. For example, games added by the user to the home screen will also pull in content such as an Activity Feed post from its developer, suggested Achievements, and many more. Microsoft has detailed that users will be able to customize their Home screen to show off friends or games of your choice.

However, the Xbox One does not require a premium Spotify subscription to be targeted for playing music from your other devices on Spotify.
