Spotify has just debuted its biggest overhaul since its Xbox One arrival, bringing a refreshed interface and new functionality to the console. Microsoft has unveiled the newly-reworked console app, with its initial rollout already underway to select Xbox One owners.
Following the new update, Xbox One Spotify users will discover a modernized design, which cleans up its user interface and embraces a lighter color scheme. The update also brings support for deeper background music integration, allowing users to select up to 20 suggested playlists through the pop-out Guide menu. Finally, Cortana voice support has surfaced, keeping your hands free with the in-house digital assistant.
The latest Spotify app is now available to select members of the Xbox Insider Program across all five pre-release preview rings. The app will automatically update to version 22.214.171.124 in time or can be manually triggered through the Spotify Microsoft Store listing on your console.
If you're yet to download Spotify for Xbox One, Xbox Insiders can directly download the new app too.
