My Question or Issue
Hi. I have Spotify installed on both my watch and my phone. When I try to initiate the playback on my phone using my watch, I cannot do so. I can see "Your phone" in the list of available devices, but when I tap on "Your phone" nothing happens.
Reinstalling Spotify on my watch or logging out and then back in solves the problem for a while, but then after some time the problem comes back.
The issue is specific to my watch. Using the Spotify desktop application on my laptop I can select my phone as the playback device and initiate the playback without any problem.
I tried reinstalling Spotify and both my phone and watch. I tried unpairing the watch and paring it back with the phone. It works for some time, but then the problem comes back.
I started observing this behavior several months ago, presumably after one of the updates. Until then I did not have any problems using my watch to start playback on my phone.
