Up your gaming experience on the new PlayStation 5 with Spotify’s gaming playlists, podcasts and original soundtracks, streamed directly on PS5.

The new PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X are arriving on the doorsteps of many lucky gamers this week. With the PlayStation 5, there are new ways to control Spotify and stream music or podcasts while you game using your controller, media remote or phone.

  • A new PS5 Media remote with dedicated Spotify button, ensuring a seamless integration between your music, podcasts, and game. Quickly navigate media with built-in play/pause, fast-forward and fast-reverse controls. The remote also lets users adjust volume and power settings on compatible TVs.
  • Access Spotify directly from the Control Center and fast access playback controls through the Control Center so you can quickly switch between games and apps, skip, and pause your music without leaving your game.
  • Spotify playback on your phone via Spotify Connect for uninterrupted gaming, as well as the ability to browse Spotify to find the very best in gaming soundtracks, playlists, and podcasts.
  • A new Media Home on the PS5, so you’ll have easy access to your media apps. Plus, if you don’t already have Spotify, you’ll be able to download it from the Media Home, link your account, or even create one.

Launched in 2016, there is a growing list of curated content on Spotify’s Gaming Hub, with playlists, podcasts and original game soundtracks. These gaming music and podcasts can be played directly on your console, or streamed on your phone, smartwatch or smart speaker.
