[Partnerships] Samsung Gear Support

Now that the SDK for the Samsung Gear 2 has been released for 3rd party devs, I wondered what the chances of Spotify developing an app for use with the smartwatch were? I know the media controller with the original Galaxy Gear worked but limited you to only the playlist you selected in the first place. Are there any plans to build on that for the Tizen driven Gear 2?

I too would love to see Spotify working, even if it is basic things like thumbs up/down and Starring songs.

That alone would make me inclined to purchase a Galaxy Gear.

Agreed!

 

I have managed to control spotify via the  media controller on Gear 2, but ti doesnt show the song name on the watch, only on the phone

A tizen Spotify app that can save music on gear s so you don't need a phone when out running would blow deezer tizen app out the water, as well as beating all android wear music apps too.

Hi, I'm a new member of the growing tizen wearable community. The Samsung Gear S is a capable device, but won't be made venerable without software support from major service providers such as Spotify. Please Spotify, leverage the 3rd party SDK and begin to support these wearable devices. As the months wear on, the market penetration of wearables is steadily growing larger than the niche it began in.  The return on investment should begin to merit the resource devotion any day now. I, for one, would be a much happier premium customer.

Disappointed to find out this isnt supported yet. Sharing my support & desire for a gear supported, tizen based Spotify app.
