Hey everyone,

Thanks for coming to the Spotify Idea Exchange and voting to make this happen.

Тhis has been one of our most upvoted ideas and we've known it's something that our users would really like to see come true. 
We're happy to announce that this feature will now become available for the Apple Watch Series 3 or later.

It will be gradually rolled out, so it might take a bit until everybody has access to it.  That being said, we'd like to let you know that the roll-out rate has increased a lot in the last weeks, so if you haven't received the feature in the past, try reinstalling the app on your watch again and there's a big chance you'll get Offline listening now.

Once again, thanks for helping us make Spotify better and voting to make this happen, here on the Community.


I have been able to use mine through the 3rd Party app Decibell. This app is really useful to allow you to work using your apple watch and the playlist

Hi there, sorry but Decibell only use your Spotify Premium account as a
remote control with the Apple Watch and iPhone, Decibell can not save the
Playlist on Apple Watch in order to go to running without the mobile..., so
it is the same that others apps. Only Music the Apple permit you save the
Playlist, 250 songs or others options in your Apple Watch. In this case,
you can go out only with your earphones and the Apple Watch without the
iPhone for playing music.

I wish Spotify could make an Apple Watch to store our offline music on the watch. It is so easy to do that with Apple music ! I hope Spotify will make an announcement quite soon !


SPOTIFY DO YOU WANT TO LOSE CUSTOMERS? NO? SO PLEASE LAUNCH THAT APP SOON! or every sporty customer with a NEW Apple Watch serie 2 will switch to Apple Music very soon, including me! Thank you 🙂


Apple Music does ...

Yes, Apple Music permit save 250 songs in the Apple Watch so you can go to running without mobile and only with your watch and EarPods

I need that feature as well! asap! please!!!


Me too.... spent the morning googling just that.... I'm loyal to Spotify and want to remain as such... Tech-wise, for running, I want GPS and I want music.  I'll put up with Bluetooth if I have to, so, if Spotify can't come up with a downloadable playlist app for the Watch then, my subscription is gonna have to go to Apple Music... Shame.
