The New Ways to Control Spotify on Your PlayStation 5

November 12, 2020

The highly anticipated PlayStation 5 is here, and with it, new ways to stream your favorite audio from Spotify while in the zone. Just as with the PS4, gamers will be able to listen to their choice of songs and podcasts, perfect for battling zombies or roaming through an open-world adventure.

There’s also a few new ways to take your listening + playing power combo up a notch. Get ready for:

  • 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. 

Plus, users will be able to access the ever-growing platform of curated gaming playlists, gaming-centric podcasts, and Original Game Soundtracks as part of Spotify’s Gaming Hub. Since 2016, the Gaming Hub has brought the best in audio content to gamers. It can help make space for unique audio experiences—no matter what you play or how you choose to listen.

Whether it’s playing on your home speakers, streaming on your smartwatch or listening through your gaming console, Spotify offers countless convenient ways to listen and discover. Level up your gaming with Spotify on PS5 by connecting your devices—and then get listening.
