[Wear OS] Offline Music on Wear OS devices

Please add offline music support to the wearable without need to be connected to the main phone /tablet.

Eg Bluetooth headphones connected to my smartwatch listening to music while I'm running.

This is now supported by the watch OS http://officialandroid.blogspot.co.uk/2014/10/jogging-and-jamming-with-android-wear.html?m=1

Hey folks,

We've listened to your feedback, and we're moving this to 'good idea, vote for it'.
We've edited the idea and title a little, so that the request is up-to-date with how things work now with the current OS available on modern Android wearables.

In the meantime, offline listening is now possible for some other devices, so if you're the owner of one of the following, please note you can find info on how to listen offline on Garmin Smartwatches here, and for Samsung wearables here.

We'll continue passing your feedback along.

This is a must. Looking forward to not taking my phone with me whilst on a run.

This has to happen.  Phones are too big to run with and the only way to bring spotify with me on my run.




Yes, great idea! Google Music supports it now, but I prefer Spotify. 


 Good idea. Indeed!


I would love to see this as well. I don't want to jump ship in favor of Google Play, but I will if it's the only available option for this. I prefer Spotify in every way though, so I'll give it a couple of months to see if they let us know where they're at with this idea.

This is every runner music lover's dream!
I definitely support this idea. Our user experience is evolving with the use of wearables (in my case Smartwatch 3) towards offline music and Spotify must be there also!

Offline Spotify on Sony smart watch 3 + offline running app = very happy runner = PR...

Please keep us informed of when this is activated - happy to beta test if that helps?
