So this still isn't working - I still can't use my Apple Watch to listen to Spotify unless it's connected to Wifi (i.e. at home).
It's simply unacceptable that all members are paying the same subscription amount yet are not receiving the same service. When will Spotify ensure that all members can use all services that they are paying for, including the ability to stream via their Apple Watch using data?
Thanks for getting back in touch.
We're sorry that you feel this way. We’re always testing possible improvements and new features, so you might see something on the app that other users don't, or get a brand-new feature for only a temporary period.
As @Mihail mentioned, we suggest that you keep the app up-to-date so you can get the new features, as soon as they're available.
We really value your feedback as it helps us to improve, and we'll be sure to pass this on to the right folks here at Spotify.
If you need help with anything else, just let us know.
Thanks for reaching out. We're sorry to hear you're also experiencing this issue.
Just to confirm, does this only happen when trying to use your AirPods?
Also, did you follow these steps to run a clean reinstall of the app?
Keep us posted. We'll be on the lookout.
Thanks for trying and keeping us posted.
Try turning the Bluetooth off and on again in the watch's OS system settings. This should do the trick for the issue with the AirPods. However, the right folks are aware of the issue with streaming in the watch and working on a fix right now. In the meantime, make sure to keep the app updated.
Thanks for your patience. If you have any questions or need a hand with anything else, give us a shout.
Thanks for getting back to us.
Can you confirm the Spotify version you're running at the moment?
Regarding the issue with your AirPods, we've reported this to Apple and you should be able to solve this by turning Bluetooth off and on again in the system settings of your watch.
Let us know how it goes.
Thanks for the clarification.
The function to stream over cellular data from the watch itself has been announced officially, however it's being slowly rolled out to all users along with the possibility to save songs for offline listening on the watch,
We don't have official info on an exact date when the feature will be rolled out to all users.
The best option would be to make sure you're always running the latest update.
Hope this helps.
