I can't see the Playback option and the link you sent is for earler version of the Galaxy Watch. This is the Watch 4, I wonder if it's because the watch is using Wear OS (and not Tizen) and Spotify haven't included the Standalone option yet?
I have logged out and back in on my premium account and still no option.
I listen to Spotify without my phone whilst running and it works great however is heavy on the battery. I'm hoping to run for roughly 1hr 20 minutes on Sunday so I'll take screenshots of before and after.
When I'm at work I often listen to Spotify via my laptop which brings up the player via my watch - this obviously uses the battery but I can't see an option to disable it.
Can someone show me how to stream music to the Galaxy Smartwatch 4's speakers directly? I just bought the Galaxy Smartwatch 4 Classic, and I'm having a hard time with technical issues. I tried messaging tech support, and they just directed me to websites that restated obvious things, like to download Spotify, and hit pair button.
Thanks for reaching out and welcome to the Community!
Streaming straight from your Samsung Smartwatch (not using it as a remote for the phone) is a feature available to you, if you are having any of the Spotify Premium subscriptions going. To stream from your wearable gear - you'd need to switch between Streaming and Remote in Settings on your Gear app.
Also, on this page here, you can read more info about Spotify on Samsung wearables and how to install and get the app going on your smartwatch.
