The update, which is now available for Alpha Ring members of the Xbox One Insiders program, uses Microsoft's new Fluent Design platform to overhaul the console's user interface.

Not all developers have the resources to pour into a quality soundtrack and in the rare instance that a game ships with a great track listing, it's likely that you'll simply get exhausted of hearing the same songs time and again.

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

You can find the Spotify app in the Entertainment menu of your Xbox One under "All apps". Don't be! You can also control playback on your Xbox wirelessly from the Spotify app on your phone, tablet or desktop using Spotify Connect.

The app works with the free and premium versions of Spotify. You can download Spotify to your console from the Xbox Store. Players will have the ability to customise this Dashboard with their favourite items from Apps to Games to Hubs. These blocks will change based on what you do, so if you put a specific game on your Home screen, it may display when your friends are playing that game, recommend which Achievement you should get next, etc. Alternatively, you can choose to play an album or playlist from your existing saved collection. Switching between tabs (new tabs are being added as well for People, Home and recent messages, broadcasts and captures, and a new action center [including settings]) is way faster and the same goes for moving between apps.

Xbox One gamers will soon be able to customize their home screen through a planned update that will soon be released for the console.

"Spotify is not going to just be about music", Greenfield said.
