Android Wear support status

Hi, 

there is a lot of confusion on Internet about how spotify supports android wear.

 

I own a sony smartwatch 3 and it seems that Spotify doesn't have a specific wear application but only pops up controls when running on the phone. Therefore:

* No smartwatch only offline play mode

* No control of playlist etc etc

* No direct streaming via smartwatch Bluetooth

 

Is that true? I'm missing an update?

There is some beta to address thoose problems?

There is a timeframe for the release of such features?

 

Thanks

Giuseppe

 

PS: Thoose features are all UP&Running on Google Play Music!

Hi!

 

Currently, you can only use your Android Wear to Control Spotify and that's it. In my opinion, it's not a must-have because the watch is still not a good replacement of the phone.

 

Hope this helps 🙂

Smartwatches like the sony one, are very good for running/cycling without the phone.

They could be a full (and better) phone replacemnet in thoose situations.

You can track the run and listen to music, but only with google play music!

 

I bought the smartwatch because of this news:

But it seems that spotify failed the promise, forcing me to consider alternatives.

Hi!

 

To have more information, you should see this article http://www.wareable.com/smartwatches/spotify-app-for-android-wear-released-1303 . I know that it's convenient when it can run standalone and not rely with the phone, but it's not yet available. So, I recommend you to submit your idea on the Idea Submissions section https://community.spotify.com/t5/Idea-Submissions/idb-p/ideas_submissions because it will have more exposure there.

 

Hope this helps 🙂
