Marked as a new idea and edited the title slightly :)
Spotify you need to develop this capability or you will lose many listeners. I prefer Spotify and my entire family uses Spotify but with my new Apple Watch, I see that for some strange reason, Spotify won't enable the ability to stream and download spotify playlists to Apple Watch. I pay for my family's subscription and will cancel it if this function is not added. I assume I am one of many Apple Watch users that will do the same. Why would you be willing to lose what will be a lot of revenue when you can add a simple feature to the Spotify app. I see many folks have written about this for years. Spotify closes the case because you created an app but the app does not do what everyone has been asking for: Ability to STREAM and DOWNLOAD playlists without the slaved iPhone (i.e., without the iPhone in range). Simple solution vs. lose large percentage of subscribers...is the decision that difficult?
Please don't force us to use stupid apple music.
I like the apple music apple watch flow (tried the trial) but I don't want it for various reasons. I'm also emotional bound to Spotify as is my family.
Come on - fix this!
I've already enrolled in Apple Music's one month free trial due to the lack of this feature. Please make it happen asap or give an indication of when it might happen...
Probably should go on its own thread, but PLEASE add this for WearOS too!!! (Adding to this thread since it is relevant and it seems to already have a lot of momentum) It would be incredible for me to download all or some of the music I listen to my watch so I don't have to always have my phone when exercising. I don't care if it has to be a reduced sound quality due to storage constraints, but I hate that the app is basically just a glorified remote control.
Oh man, what's up with this!? This is just basic stuff, that's the only reason I want Spotify on my watch (run without phone while listening to offline music). Come on!
Go Go Go Go Go!
We are still wating this... :(
