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'm a 4 year spotify customer who used to have multiple personal accounts and now has a family plan and will be moving my family over to apple icloud family plan if spotify doesn't resolve the apple watch problem.

How is this still not a thing at this point? Millions of fitness enthusiasts would love to have the ability to leave their phone at home or in their car when they go for a run or go to the gym. This is a no brainer, I thought!

They do. They use Apple Music and ditch Spotify

Obviously this wasn't the solution I was looking for. But thanks for your 2
cents.

i have been watching this thread for over a year - Spotify has never
responded to a post or acknowledged it in any way

And THAT is the real problem for me. If Spotify would simply provide an update and tell us, “hey, we’re working on a solution. Please be patient”, I would be more understanding. But to completely ignore the problem and go radio-silent on your customers is unacceptable.

Actually, they kinda responded - with the all "Apple is unfair" campaign some time in the spring. I'd put my bet on their reluctance being strategic - it might be a bargaining chip to get lower rates at Apple Store purchases commission.

I don't understand - when will this be done? I'd like to go phone-free in my lifetime...
