Xbox One

Listen to Spotify on your Xbox One console! 

Get started

Download Spotify from the Microsoft Store on your Xbox One and log in one of these three ways.

Tip: Don’t have a Spotify account? Just open the Spotify app on Xbox One and select SIGN UP to create one.

Use Spotify Connect to play from the app on your mobile, tablet, or desktop:

  1. Make sure your device is connected to the same WiFi network as your Xbox one. Open Spotify.
  2. Play a song and tap Devices Available (mobile) or click  (desktop).
  3. Select your Xbox One from the device picker and start listening.

You can now use your phone as a remote to control the music on your Xbox One.

  1. Open the Spotify app on your Xbox One.
  2. Select LOG IN.
  4. Enter your Spotify email address and password.

Note: If you usually log in with Facebook, use Spotify Connect to log in instead (see the steps above).

  1. Open the Spotify app on your Xbox One.
  2. Select LOG IN.
  3. Select LOG IN WITH PIN. On your phone or computer, go to and enter the pin you see on your screen.

Listen while you game

When you play Spotify on your Xbox One, it continues playing when you go to your game.

Tip: If the game allows, you can disable in-game music for the best Spotify experience.

To control the music while you game:

  1. Press the Xbox button on your controller to bring up the Xbox Guide.
  2. Select Spotify.
  3. Here you can change your music selection, skip songs, play/pause, or adjust the volume.

Or, use Spotify Connect to use your phone to control the music remotely.
