Spotify Launches A New Category Specifically For Gamers


Music-streaming service Spotify has launched a new video game category.

Called Spotify Gaming, the category includes special playlists like Power Gaming, RetroWave, and Top Gaming Tracks, in addition to songs from “hundreds” of games like Fallout 4 and No Man’s Sky. 

Gaming personalities like Day [9] and Sneaky Zebra have their own playlists, with more coming later, Spotify said in a blog post today.

The Top Gaming Tracks playlist features songs like, “You’re Gonna Go Far, Kid” by The Offspring and Eminem’s “Rap God” which aren’t video-game related.

The music service’s library of gaming songs can be found at

“So whether you’re jumping down tubes as an Italian plumber, battling hordes of evil enemies or playing Barcelona at the Camp Nou, we got you covered with the perfect soundtrack,” Spotify said.

Spotify’s new Gaming category should show up in the Browse section on all platforms (iOS, Android, PC, and PlayStation) starting later today.

PlayStation Music for PS4 and other PlayStation consoles use Spotify and supports background music play so you can listen to music while gaming. Background music support did recently come to Xbox One, but Spotify is not available via Microsoft’s console.
