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 want to be able to save my spotify music offline on my watch for a run.

Hi there and welcome to the community,


At the moment there is no Watch app available.

You may want to add kudos to the ideas below, any future updates will be announced there:


Hi there, I am spotify premium member, however I have bought an Apple Watch and I am so sad because there aren't App to Watch and now with Apple Music, I believe spotify cannot develop this app....so maybe I must leave to be a member of spotify Servicios.
Do spotify the intention to up the Spotify Apple Watch Apps?
I hope so....and soon or be late.
You can use "Joy" Apple Watch app for Spotify
Thanks for your reply, ok I can use Joy, however I would like to know if Spotify is going to do the app to Apple watch or the only one solution is joy?
Joy is not the "official" app of Spotify, isn't there?

Not, at the moment you cannot use Spotify with your Apple Watch for running. It is a pity because I have the same problem I am a premium member since years and now I am going to change to Apple music because I cannot use it without my iPhone. 

In you pr Apple watch is so easy, open the Watch app and in the Music you must sincronyce one list (chosen number of songs or size of playlist) and open the music from your watch....., chose the device for listing and be free.....

i hope spotify can do it........, dead or alive........I hope so

Is there any update on this? Can't just be that Spotify as the no one music streaming service is too dumb to build a small Apple Watch app to hear music directly from you watch.

Hey @bob2211


I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before they have an Apple Watch app. They already have an Android Wear watch app.


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.
