I was just considering buying an android wear. I had one before and was then using GPM and it worked excellent! It's so saddening that a company that considers itself to be the world leading music streaming company do not support offline listening on android NOR apple watches (!).
In the almost identical Apple Watch thread, the rumor is that it might come at some Apple event in June.
Any update on this? Shouldn't be difficult to implement, so if there's another reason, can you please be transparent about it @Spotify?
I'd very much like to leave my phone at home when going for a run, being able to listen to Spotify in offline mode on my Android Wear watch.
I feel we're owed at least a quick reply, but I'd rather see a timeline and/or a more detailed status update, since this has been discussed since 2014 (forum post 10/2015, official reply to ticket on 2/2015 - "Not right now").
As music streaming services are getting more homogeneous all the time, it's going to become easier to switch back and forth if the feature set is not on par, and as Wear OS are becoming more of a focus for Google, and the userbase is growing, I feel it's important for Spotify to do everything to grow in all avenues.
Very unsatisfying situation. Spotify only drops standard phrases ("We'll pass it to the right persons.. blabla"). Should be a standard feature in 2018. Thinking about using Google Play Music instead of Spotify too.
