Rumors that Spotify would soon arrive on Xbox One started spreading last week when users spotted Microsoft's Larry Hyrb, aka Major Nelson, testing the app. The updated version will be open for the masses towards the end of this year. This new experience on Xbox One gives gamers more choice and delivers fun faster. This new update however, may address this thanks to a new system dubbed Microsoft Fluent Design which puts control of the interface in the hands of the users.

Spotify users with free or Premium accounts can download the Spotify app from the Xbox One store and control music from other devices to avoid interruptions during play.

All this and more is available on the latest Xbox update released to Insiders yesterday.

Additionally, the dashboard sports a new look and "has been updated to focus on speed, customization and expression". Just keep in mind to turn off the in-game music. Competing against the PS4 Pro, both consoles now boast the ability to customize an in-game soundtrack around players' preferences. 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. You can pin games and friends to home, and you can move the whole block of content up or down. 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.

The streaming app joins Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Pandora and other apps already available on Xbox One. It continues playing when you return to your game via the Xbox menu.
