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 over the upcoming weeks, so it might take a bit until everybody has access to it. There's more info 

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


Been an age since I posted my optimistic post many replies ago in the other thread ! So Spotify peeps, now that the API is there to make it happen, are you going to come out of the closet and reveal whether or not you’re working on a watch app? Over 750 responses talking about it across two threads I’ve seen, surely an up to date reply from the company would help.

One more month and I am moving my family plan to Apple Music.  If they at the very least announce its coming in that time, I'll stick it out for a few more months.   


Please make this happen ASAP

FYI Watchify is now called Remotify. 

PLEASE do this, Spotify! You’re just begging your customers to switch to Apple Music if you don’t. It’s only a matter of time until I stop waiting and switch myself... get better at customer service, please.


Could someone please tell me when a Spotify app will be available on the Apple Watch? Or do I need to swap my subscription to Apple Music? Many thanks.



Apple Watch OS 5 is now open for Developers.

So no Reasons NOT to build the perfect Spotify App for Apple Watch 4.

Do you want your Customers to move to Apple Music?? I guess NO!


The solution is to unsubscribe Spotify and subscribe to Deezer.

Spotify has had their chance.

farewell Spotify.

As far as I know Deezer does not support offline mode for Apple Watch ?


Still only Apple Music that does offline to Apple Watch.

Yes it does. I have it on my watch right now
