Gear S3 - Shuffle/Save/Repeat Not available offline

Mikeward

The new offline mode is almost perfect and I'm wondering why shuffle and repeat are not available offline. This exclusion makes no sense to me, if the songs are downloaded then why should shuffling or repeating them be an issue. Please fix this soon or at least let us know of when this change might be implemented.

Regards

Mike

I'm also having this problem. Sometimes I can't even skip to the next song. Pressing skip will stop the current song... quite annoying

Also having this issue. Seems daft to me that it wasn't implemented, it's a pretty awful user experience. 

 

Another thing I've noticed, if you select a song to play once the song finishes it'll always skip back to the 2nd song in the playlist. Pretty aggravating experience having to fiddle with your watch while on a run...

Same problem on my iPhone. Why does Spotify want to play songs from the library, when the  song is not downloaded? I think that's why the shuffle function stops. Pretty annoying!

Me too, Gear Fit 2 Pro.  Nice big Shuffle button, and it doesn't work.  I think maybe it picks one song at random, and then from there it plays sequentially.

Too bad, the shuffle function is really important. At least on your device it plays on. On the iPhone the player just stops because it wants to play a song which is not downloaded. But still no fix......

Same issue here.

Also, seems that Spotify app has less "priority" in front of native player app, therefore controlling music from bt headset fails at one point.

Come one Spotify, do something. Quick.
