Offline Apple Watch playback ultimatum

Hey there,

 

I’ve seen the several years worth of people clamoring for an update to enable offline playback on Apple Watch, including a reply in September that provided no real additional information. As a loyal customer for several years, I have no desire to switch to Apple Music. But as the owner of a new and expensive smart watch, I cannot continue with Spotify unless this basic functionality is added. 

So, here’s the ultimatum: Apple Music allows a three month free trial. I’m going to use them exclusively for running playlists during that time. If there isn’t an offline-enabled, no-iPhone-required Apple Watch app by September, I’m ending my account with Spotify and making the switch.
