Spotify comes to PlayStation

30 March 2015

spotify-logo Spotify and have teamed-up with Sony to create a new PlayStation Music app, which means you'll be able to listen to your own playlists while playing video games.

The app is available today (which means, hurray, yet another update to do on your PS3 or PS4) and you'll be able to listen to albums over the top of in-game audio. That means you can play a super bleak horror game while listening to 'Yakety Sax' by Boots Randolph. And who wouldn't want to do that?

Of course, if you like tutting about things like Spotify, you can always ignore all this and play Solitaire with some playing cards while listening to an LP.

For those of you interested, the app is available even if you don't have a premium Spotify account.

Gustav Soderstrom, chief product officer at Spotify, said: "Music has always been a big part of gaming. I remember playing computer games like Quake and Counter-Strike with my favourite tunes on in the background, taking the experience to a whole new level. With today's launch, we're bringing back that magic of gaming with music - all in a beautifully-designed and smooth experience that looks great on the big screen."

You'll get all the usual features through the app, as well as a new the option to control the music in-game via a pop-up volume menu. Spotify Connect technology will be part of the app too, which means other people in the room with access to your account can control the tunes with their phones or whatever.
