Playing background music on Xbox One

Audio from certain music apps will keep playing while you use other apps and games.

  1. Launch a music app that supports background music, such as Spotify or Pandora.
  2. Once music is playing, launch the game you want to play or app you want to use. Music will keep playing in the background.

For controls such as pause and skip, press the Xbox button to open the guide, then highlight the music app. From there you can also adjust the volume and open the music app full screen.
