How do we sign up for the beta? Please make offline mode available, if you don't want to waste your time for a useless app.

Well I just finish Apple Music, totally useless for me.  Just hope I get a spot on the beta.

I’ve been waiting years for this.  I’m actively looking at which music service to switch to.

Just saw the note from Spotify about the Spotify watchapp and it appears to be out of Beta.  Turned my phone off and back on and the app showed on my watch but of course no OFFLINE which is all people really want.  I find it funny they have to know that's what we want and I don't see any mention of it in their Notes.

This app adds very little additional functionality beyond the built-in "Now Playing" feature. Hopefully we will not have to wait another 4 years for offline...

potify for Apple Watch Helps You Keep Time With the Music

We’re constantly on the go—whether bouncing between the gym, work, school, errands, or just chilling—and our smartwatches are the tool to help keep us up to speed. Today, Spotify is introducing a new app for the Apple Watch, giving you the ability to seamlessly access and control your favorite music and podcasts without missing a beat.

We know the importance of having music on the go, which is why we’re excited to bring a new Spotify app to our highly mobile users on Apple Watch. With this new app, users can enjoy an improved experience with better control and the ability to seamlessly connect to your speakers or devices. And while we continue to innovate, we have many exciting things coming up —including the ability to listen to your music and podcasts offline.

More activities—more control

Smartwatches let us access the world with a flick of our wrists. Ready to start your run? Hit play from your Apple Watch without having to wrangle your phone out of its running case. Running into a friend as you head into the grocery store? Tap pause to grab a cart and a chat. Not feeling a slow song during your birthday party? Skipping to the track that matches your mood and activity is now as easy as checking your notifications. Or, while listening to your favorite podcast, easily rewind 15 seconds to catch that detail you missed. It’s all right there on the watch face.

Speaking of parties, easily connect your speakers or devices via Spotify Connect to effortlessly DJ from your watch.

Easier access—easier discovery

The new integration with Apple Watch makes accessing your recently played songs simple, even with your phone in your pocket. Plus, if you find a new favorite track while on the go, just tap the ♡ icon on your watch screen to save it to your collection—and then feel free to stream it over and over again.

This new experience will be rolling out to Apple Watch users over the coming week. Make sure that you have the latest version (v.8.4.79) of Spotify, or download it on the App Store—and look out for more updates coming soon.
