Xbox Game Pass is a monthly subscription service from Microsoft that gives you access to over 200 games a month for $10. There are a couple of options when it comes to subscribing. You can either get Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, or bundle Xbox Game Pass for Xbox One, Xbox Game Pass for PC, and Xbox Live Gold for $15 with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
Microsoft definitely wants people to subscribe because it's now giving six months of Spotify Premium if you sign up. Unfortunately, it looks like this promotion is only available to new subscribers who choose Xbox Game Pass Ultimate.
If you want to subscribe, just head over to your console and in "My games & apps," you'll find a listing for "Memberships." One of the subscription services there will be Xbox Game Pass. This will direct you towards the Microsoft Store where you can select Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and get it for $1 for the first month. After that, you'll be charged $15 a month.
