Thank god Groove music is a piece of shit.
It's not *nearly* as bad as some of the other failed music streaming services out there, including Sony's previous botched attempt.

In fact, Groove is pretty good--it just needs some UI tweaks and updates, and it would be on par with other services (like the one this thread was originally about).

Enjoy Xbox users.
Imo is the best app of this gen.
I cant imagine going back to MP games, sports and racing without it.

It's great in Forza Horizon 3 though, you can just upload music to OneDrive and listen your own music for free without advertisement. Plus the the game will automatically adjust the volume during narration in game. Oh and simulating music coming from festivals is a super nice touch. I wish FH3 could adopt Spotify into the game soon.

Ugh, I'm seriously considering cancelling my spotify and subscribe to Google Music instead for the other aspects of my life beyond gaming, but if Spotify is no longer exclusive with Sony and is eventually coming to other consoles then I might want to hold on to it.

well, I think now there's enough reason for me to move from Google Play Music to Spotify,

I have not used any of the music apps (Groove, Spotify) on either the PS4 or XB1 yet. How does this work when playing games to where you need to hear the narritave or anything else? Can you hear both or does the music app turn down.

Literally my exact thoughts. Just bought an Echo, too, which has great Spotify support.
Yeah, google play is great, but: it only works on google stuff, and listen to your musics on pc trough your browser is not so good as a standalone application.

I'll just test the free version a little to be sure about it.

Not seeing a way to download yet. The page for the app is up on the app section with no way to download.

Its not uwp, wtf is this shit.
Technically, Web/HTML apps are part of the UWP. Spotify just didn't use a single code base to target multiple platforms. They went converter bridge for desktop and html for Xbox.

I don't subscribe to any music service, but have been using Groove Music since it can read from my library one OneDrive. Does Spotify do that too ?
Also I'd be ready to switch to whichever platform has good voice command support.

Sadly no. That's why I have both

Having Spotify is great on PS4. Happy to hear it's finally coming to Xbox One as well.

Forza Horizon 3 will be excellent with Spotify.

Now get Apple Music on there and it will be even better.

An extremely important move by MS. Sony were doing rounds on them with that exclusive partnership. As a PlayStation owner, I welcome this move and I'm happy for my Xbox friends. Great day for gaming.
