The official Spotify app for Microsoft’s Xbox One consoles updated today with a rather surprising new design that’s much closer to the Windows 10 and mobile apps.

This new app retains its original play experience but the main navigation (see above image) now features a side menu of the left side similar to the Netflix and YouTube apps and a wider variety of previously played songs, artists, and playlists to choose from. The support for podcasts has also been improved.

Of particular note is the dynamic background which changes as the user selects different tiles. Overall, this new app makes it much easier to find content than before with the old Spotify design and looks a whole lot better visually on a TV screen.
