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!

Franc2018, I’m definitely interested! TY.

Sorry for being ignorant... but what can I do with the Apollo app.. I tried looking for info but I couldn't find any.. thanks 

Access Spotify from your watch without needing the phone nearby

Hello guys. I bring you bad news. I tried them all but unfortunately the reverse engineering process does not work. encrypted backups, iTunes 11 to synchronize apps: nothing works. I can continue to download the app by going to the Apple store shopping history, even though the app is no longer available. unfortunately my iPhone is iOS 12.4.1 installed. the last solution (what works) is to find an iPhone with iOS 12.4 installed. if I find (I don't have it) an iPhone with iOS 12.4: 1. I log in to my ICloud account. 2. download the app from the purchase history. 3. JailBreak 4. I pull out the ipa so everyone can install it. If anyone has an iPhone with iOS 12.4 can send it to me, I will send it back to you. I cannot provide my account password. Please don't respond to this topic by doing so, if someone is willing to send me an iPhone, they can read. I hope to see a PM soon.


Shameful response from Spotify 


Extremely dissapointing that the spotify doesnt see this feature as a priority, will probably move to Apple Music because of it's lack of inclusion.

Utterly disrespectful and ungrateful behavior by the recipient of my dollars. A single developer has pulled of this feat more than once and each time SPOTIFY has killed the app. Spotify blocks this and won't tell us why.


Just be honest with us...


Are you withholding because you're building a case against apple for non-competitive behavior? 

Are you playing the long game so you can sue apple?

Does your app suck and you don't want to release it?

Does your CEO hate the apple watch and he's blocking it because he's a jack@ss?

Did you lose another Project Manager and have to start over?


Just. Be. Honest.

Spotify not being able to play music directly from the apple watch to my headphones without an iphone nearby (meaning it's completely useless on a run) is the only reason why I'm switching away from spotify to apple music. I don't plan on keeping tabs on spotify patch notes either, so I really don't see myself swapping back.  This is such an obvious UX flaw, I'm amazed a company of this size and scale managed to stumble like this.

Guys, who wants Apollo?
