Spotify for Xbox One Revealed by Microsoft

The Guide's a bit quicker and its smoother layout aims to make navigation easier, letting players switch between layered tabs with bumpers, the left joystick or the d-pad. All you have to do is go to your guide and pin it to home. An entry for the Spotify app has been seen at the Microsoft store for the Xbox One, hinting at the music streaming service making its way to the console in the near future. The first button sends users straight to their game library, but the next few are recently-played games or apps - a nice addition, if available elsewhere, that keeps you from having to dig around for your last-loaded title. If you check out this listing, you can find a brand new Xbox One S that comes with a controller and four free games for only $250. Unlike the Xbox One changes, these are assumedly rolling out immediately. The Activity Feed along with Game Hubs, profiles, and Clubs have all been reorganized to present the user with more information at a glance.

Within the Xbox Insider Program, there's also the Xbox One Update Preview option, which consists of tiers called "rings". There's still something to be said about the amount of fat that might not need to be there at all, but this is a step above anything the Xbox One has seen yet.

This release is the next major update for gaming on Xbox One and Windows 10 PC, and is created to make the Xbox gaming experience more fun, personalized, and social than ever.

Microsoft also says the wait between Home, Social, and My Games and Apps has been eliminated by bringing them into a single Dashboard experience. "We'll be introducing plenty of new features in the coming months across Xb0X One, Windows 10 PC, Mixer, and mobile devices created to make your gaming experiences all about you".
