It's been an "exclusive", meaning that consoles like Microsoft's Xbox One and Nintendo's Switch couldn't get the app. Still, it does make sense for Spotify to tap into this market, offering Xbox One gamers the chance to listen to music on their console, perhaps while also playing a game.

The image above comes from a Microsoft training website, which was then posted to the Xbox One subreddit - the highlighted language points to an upcoming Spotify app on the Xbox One. Microsoft probably wants it ready to roll out by the time the Xbox One X launches, and that's happening on November 7.

Spotify and Sony have always claimed to have an exclusive partnership, but it appears a Spotify app is heading to the Xbox platform after Reddit user Geralt_De_Rivia spotted Xbox's Larry Hryb, aka Major Nelson, using a Spotify app on his Xbox.

Do you or would you use Spotify on your console?

Sony announced its exlusive deal with Spotify back in 2015 for both PS3 and PS4. The app had an exclusivity right with Sony and their PlayStation Music service, which Spotify aimed to replace. Additionally, subscribers to Spotify premium can look forward to having high quality bit rates in their tracks, ensuring the best sounding music available to them while listening through the Xbox platform. "Today, Spotify is coming to Windows 10 PC's and Xbox", the portal reads.
