[iOS][Developer] 2020 WatchOS 7: Apple Watch Offline Music

With the release of WatchOS 7, it should now be possible for Spotify to add offline listening capabilities to the Spotify Apple Watch app (see Apple’s new AVFoundation: “Users can play locally-synced playlists or podcasts while on the go”). Please allow subscribers to download playlists to the watch itself so non-LTE watch owners can use the service solely with an Apple Watch and Bluetooth headphones.

Spotify has become obsolete, there are no more excuses.. watch os 7 supports drm audio streaming. What is there to vote for? where is the update?
The app update should have been available yesterday. Pathetic!

Spotify is up in arms over Apple One but I’ll probably switch when it’s available. Spotify refusing to update the watch app to allow offline syncing is ridiculous. This is a widely requested feature and honestly at this point, basic functionality. Why would I pay for a Spotify family plan when I can get Apple Music which supports this in addition to storage, tv+, and arcade for $5 more.

I completely agree. Many people prefer Apple Music just due to this feature and how integrated Apple Music is on their devices.

This is typical, companies are innovative, then they get bored and just think about earning money, more money..before you notice it, customers are gone ...for real ...you don't believe me. ? well i am one of them !

I was patient enough with Spotify. They had the time to work on the iWatch 6 and Watch OS7....

Now i will cancel my familly plan and we will all in the familly be using Apple music, not because it is better but just because we can listen to the music on iwatch which Spotify refuses to work on.

Bye bye Spotify....

 

Marc / Spotify users for many years....but not anymore !
