This is NOT the solution. It is a workaround. Spotify should figure this out! CMON!

This is EXACTLY what is happening with my Gear S3. It drives me totally bonkers when I’m out running to the point I want to smash the thing to pieces! Was totally the reason I bought the thing. It’s so temperamental! Utter tripe.

Turn on wifi on watch and spotify, start playing downloaded mudic and turn off wifi on watch. It should play dowloaded songs offline. Also keep in mind the manual states that after 1 GB is full of downloaded songs, it starts to overwritten the oldest ones. Total memory on S4 is 4 GB.

Insane that years after release this thing (gear s3) cant just play offline music and track a run.

 

Do you think apple would do somthing like this? Samsung would be driving away customers, should be working with Spotify until resolved.

I moved to Tidal a few months ago and it works great with my Samsung Galaxy
Watch. They also have a tool to migrate your playlists from Spotify to Tidal

I felt like it was never gonna work again until they released a new version. 

Luckily I tried what people were saying wouldn't work. I uninstalled the app and installed it again. Lost my offline content, of course. But it worked!

 

There's a plus. The new version is even allowing to use th shuffle! 

It did stress me badly in the morning when I went for a run. But I managed to fix in the afternoon!

This question is marked as solved, and this particular message is identified as the solution. As the author of the message says themselves, it is NOT a solution. I don't know if Spotify tagged it as solved, but it is pathetic.

I was able to solve a problem with a playlist pressing the button download off after already downloaded all songs, then I press the button to download again. Apparently some verification is done and things start to work again.
