Spotify reckons the "perfect soundtrack can take you back to reminisce about moments of gaming triumph, or get you fired up for the next big challenge ahead".

"For some time now, Xbox gamers have been telling us that they'd like to be able to soundtrack their own gaming sessions using Spotify, to make every single session feel new and unique,'' Mikael Ericsson, Product Director, Platform & Partner Experience at Spotify said in a blog post.

"Starting today, Spotify is available on Xbox One in 34 markets* around the world.

"The new integration means that millions of Xbox One gamers can now choose the perfect music from Spotify to provide a fresh gaming soundtrack every time.

 You can choose from your saved music, search the full Spotify catalogue of 30 million tracks, or browse the pre-curated gaming playlists in the 'Gaming' hub.

"And, to celebrate the launch of Spotify on Xbox One we even have a playlist curated by Major Nelson himself.

Simply play your music on demand with your Xbox One controller, whether you are a free or a Premium Spotify user.
