Spotify said to be coming soon to Xbox One

Another Reddit user also spotted an article on the Microsoft retail partner training portal which also teased that the app will be coming to Xbox saying "This week, Microsoft announced huge news that impacts more than one of those devices".

Furthermore, The Verge has confirmed with sources close to the matter that Spotify is indeed launching on Xbox One soon.

Yesterday, someone snapped a picture of an Xbox executive using the Spotify app on Xbox and today, someone else is throwing fuel onto the fire.

Thursday forecast: Cooler, chance of storms
This is a strong storm system with the potential to produce severe weather from around 2:00PM through 8:00PM Friday . The result will be continuation of below normal temps for the weekend after today's highs in the lower 90s.

For those unfamiliar with Spotify, at least on consoles, the application is a popular and premium music streaming app. Though Groove Music probably won't be leaving the Xbox ecosystem anytime soon, it would appear that Microsoft has chose to open up the platform and allow competitors like Spotify to come on board. A Spotify app for Xbox One is certainly past due, as one has been available on PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 since 2015.

Although Microsoft allows Xbox players to stream their own music and even listen to them in the background while playing their favourite games on the platform, having Spotify on Xbox One means getting access to a larger library of content with new music being added constantly. One important piece had been missing though, with Xbox owners clamoring for Spotify to make an official app for Xbox One.
