Spotify Gaming

Spotify Gaming now provides gamers with dedicated a gaming hub. That means while you’re out catching Pokémon with Pokémon GO or discovering new planets in No Man’s Sky you can listen to a variety of curated Spotify Gaming playlists as well as gaming Original Soundtracks. Some of the gaming playlists you can listen to while you emerge into a gaming world, include Power Gaming which gets you pumped with a rap mix, Heavy Gamer for “those that like it hard and heavy” and Electronic Gaming which gets you psyched with EDM. There’s even a guest playlist which was created by popular tech and entertainment website, Mashable, which has a mix of instrumental funk and jazz for gaming. One of the coolest playlists currently curated for Spotify Gaming is called RetroWave/Outrun, which was influenced by the iconic sounds of 80s games and movies. Some of the cool gaming Original Soundtracks found in Spotify Gaming include Uncharted 4, The Last of Us and Mirror’s Edge.

We’re still eagerly awaiting the South African roll-out of the popular music streaming service and wish we could take advantage of some of its cool features, like being able to listen to music on any device and desktop, or the ability to download unlimited music and listen to it offline.

Drop us a comment and let us know what music you love to listen to while you’re gaming.
