Spotify and other music streaming services have revolutionized how we all listen to music. But with all of these amazing services available, there hasn’t really been one that is dedicated to the popular tunes of video games. Whether you’re looking for your favorite soundtrack or just trying to set the mood for a gaming session, we’ve really been on our own to find what we need. Thankfully, Spotify is looking out for us, and has just launched a new portal dedicated 100% to gaming.
The Verge first reported on the opening of the awesome new musical gaming resource, and from checking out the portal, it seems pretty great. Essentially, you can find your favorite video game soundtracks in one place and even discover gaming playlists curated by various Spotify staffers or community members to match your mood while you’re playing.
Just like you’ll see with Spotify-curated playlists on the main Spotify portal, some of the playlist names are a bit cheesy. Don’t let that scare you off, because the playlists themselves are pretty solid. They appeal to a wide range of gamers, and the amount of playlists can only grow as the portal gets more popular. The soundtracks are organized alphabetically, and you can search for specific soundtracks by the first letter of the title. If you want to type something into a search bar, you’ll have to do that through Spotify proper for now.
The portal is still in its infancy, and there’s still a lot of great music and features to be added to keep the portal working seamlessly with the main section of Spotify. Still, the gaming portal is off to a great start, and is a pretty rad musical resources for gamers of all stripes.
