watchOS 5 should allow Spotify to develop an app that allows offline listening and streaming via cellular data.

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!


Really want this feature. Drives me mad that I have to bring my phone when I go for a run. I think this community update is also not helping really, why can’t you just promise that you will develop this?


Hi, not being able to use my fantastic apple watch without the big iPhone when running etc. has become a blocker for me. I need to be able to make playlists available offline on my watch. If there is no solution for this I am on my way,  to an Apple Music subscription. I like the Spotify curation much more etc, but hey, you can always keep a free Spotify account and playlists can always easily be transferred over if needed via various apps. 


any updates!?!?!





It’s finally happening, maybe I won’t have to leave for Apple Music after all.


Apple One may have pushed this over the line. 


Aw man that does look promising! I want to try! Hopefully they start rolling this out to more users (as in me!) so I can test this out.


Hi All,

Quick update as Spotify don’t seem to feel the requirement to do so. I have the beta option on my watch as well and it seems to work. Will give it a proper test tomorrow on a run. It’s not the most intuitive option to find:

1. Open the app then at the bottom right where there is the green phone symbol click on it.

2. select the beta option that has the name of you watch.


your done!


i will feed back with a field test tomorrow 


So how does one get into the beta program?


Apparently it is a server side switch, people in the beta or alpha don’t have it. 


I did not sign onto the beta programme. I was just pleasantly surprised to see that it was there.
