Hey folks,

We wanted to post an update as a lot of you have added your votes to this idea. 

We’re always working on improving the Spotify experience across platforms, but we’re afraid we don’t have any further information to share at the moment.

We typically don't announce integrations with third parties in advance. The best place to keep an eye on is on the Spotify Newsroom blog for updates about any partnerships.


Thanks for continuing to share your ideas!

I wouldn’t expect it any time soon if at all. Snowy was pretty close to release if I remember correctly and the beta APIs have been available pre-release to developers. So since we haven’t even heard so much as a hint that it’s coming makes it seem unlikely.

what is watchify and how do you get it?


They have had acquired a working product over a year ago, doesn't mean they are going to integrate it.




Anybody have stats on the most votes for feature. I can’t imagine anything has more kudos than this request for Apple Watch app. 


Seriously people. Go hire a good business development and strategy person and make this deal app happen. Your theoretically exclusive deal with Samsung is just going to land you in second or third place as a music streaming service. I just bought an Apple Watch Series 4 and I get six months of Apple Music for free with it. I’m sure I’m not the only one who is going to give it a try and likely switch because you lack this basic function.

 What a huge disappointment. I picked up an Apple Watch series 4 and thought that I could play music however it doesn’t work with Spotify. Only Apple Music. So monopolistic 


I just got an Apple Watch, I've been a Spotify user for 8 years and I until yesterday I could no longer imagine my life without it. I have 1 month of free Apple Music and If I get used to it i'll have to switch. I just payed for a app to move all my playlists. It is a dark day indeed.. 


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
