Spotify App on Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex

Spotify is a digital music streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs and podcasts. All Xfinity Flex customers should see the app on their device today. On Xfinity X1, the app has begun its gradual rollout and will be available on all eligible X1 devices in the coming days.

To use the Spotify app, you’ll need:
  • A compatible X1 TV Box (RNG150 and Pace XG1v1 devices aren’t supported), or a Streaming TV Box with Xfinity Flex service.
  • Xfinity Internet (any level)

 

Access the Spotify App on Your TV Box

You can find the Spotify app by saying "Spotify" into your Xfinity Voice Remote. You can also:
  1. From the main menu, select Apps.
  2. Select the Spotify tile.
    • X1: Find it under the Featured or Music & Podcasts rows.

Re: Spotify App on Xfinity X1 and Xfinity Flex

I have a Pace XG2V1 Box and it appears that I will not be able to get Spotify.  How can I upgrade to the XG1v4 box?  I have two of the Pace boxes which I would like to replace, including the very old remotes that came with them in 2012.  Is there a way I can exchange these without having to go to the Comcast store during this pandemic?

all XG2 will get this and future updates. only the rng150 and xg1v1 (oldest DVR with only 5 tuners) can't add new internet features. your XG2 has 3 tuners to loan out to current/future xi3/xiD set top boxes.
