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!

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

Ive had the Deezer app on my Apple Watch for a long time and there is no offline mode so that you can go running without your phone and still listen to music.


There is no news about a new Deezer app för Apple Watch that does offline music - if so, please submit a link.


I really hope you are right, I just have not seen any news about it.


I've pretty much had it with Spotify. It was bad enough when they removed the tempo running feature, which continues to anger hundreds of runners. Having that capability was the single most important reason I chose Spotify. But I can't even listen to my own playlists unless I carry my phone with me. Unacceptable, Spotify.

I have a cellular Apple Watch. Why not allow me to stream my own **bleep** playlists?!?! Who does your marketing research? It certainly isn't anyone with any forward thinking. Spotify keeps saying "We're considering it." Spotify used to be the top in the music app industry, now they've become an also-ran...

My family premium membership is set to renew in a few weeks. Seriously considering cancelling and switching to Apple Music. I really don't want to do that, because I do love Spotify. But, why stay with a company who doesn't listen, or care what their members are saying?


This would be a great idea. As an Apple Watch user, I would love to use my Apple Watch to see my playlist and play the song I want. Similar to Apple Music right now but better!
