Spotify on Xbox will also have special "gamer" curated playlists, including a unique playlist built by Xbox Head of Programming, Major Nelson. The integration will allow players to soundtrack their own gaming sessions for a more personalized experience.

On a related note, Spotify is coming to Xbox Live today, according to Aaron Greenberg, head of Xbox Games Marketing.

Once you've downloaded the app from the Entertainment section of the Xbox Store you'll still need to login to Spotify to access tunes. The app is open to all Spotify users, whether you have a free or Premium subscription.

All of your playlists and curated mixes will be available, as well as the browse and discovery features you're used to in other versions.
