Pebble is touting that with the release of their new "Pebble App Store", happening soon out now, Pandora will have an app that runs on the Pebble allowing you to vote a track up/down as well as advance to the next song. As I subscribe to Spotify and not Pandora, I would LOVE to see this same kind of app coming from Spotify. Currently, the Pebble can control your music, but only through the "now playing" system on a given smartphone. Personally, I have an iPhone 5 and while it works flawlessly to play/pause and advance tracks, having the voting up/down functionality in an actual Spotify app would be amazing.
EDIT: The app store is open, but Pandora have not released their app for some reason. Perhaps they are waiting for the official release of the Steel (I know the promo units had it pre-loaded for reviewers). I think it would be very interesting if Spotify were to beat them to it! There are several other apps from major companies, like Yelp and Foursquare, so this isn't just a niche market. Other companies are realizing the potential, and I'd be really excited if Spotify did, too!
The attached image is from a review on tomsguide.com showing Pandora's Pebble app as it will look while controlling the smartphone it is linked to. I think it's a very clean and simple interface that could easily be replicated by Spotify. The two services, while streaming radio, are very similar. For those of us using Pebble I think it may be tempting to switch without this feature, which is the main reason I have brought this to the ideas forum.

The ability to search through music on other smart watches rather than the apple watch (pebble, fossil, Fitbit ect.). With Android Wear I believe this could be possible as my truck allows me to search my Spotify libary when using Andriod auto. A Spotify app or just plug in controls for smart watch software. My pebble app allows me to set Spotify as my watches default music app, all I can do is volume, skip and play/pause. I'm surprised this isn't a feature yet...
