I had the same issue also. I found that if I alter the playlist on my phone I need to: 1) Make sure watch and phone are connected via bluetooth and wifi on Auto. Then go into 'Device manager' on my samsung phone to clear cache (this secretly clears spotify cache on watch also). 2) On watch open Spotify and it will now ask you to log back in 3) On watch - offline and delete download 4) Connect to wifi (on not auto) with watch 5) playlist - download again 6) Wifi - turn off 7) On phone - turn off bluetooth
As mentioned in my previous posts, it is the phone's maintenance/cleaner that screws up the Spotify app on the watch.
Does anyone know if this thread has lost its impact because it has been marked as Solved? Surely it would be better to remain unsolved as the solution is not good enough. I'm assuming that anyone from Spotify won't look at solved issues.
Yes, I agree that it is not solved at all. It seems that when it comes to external integration Spotify is becoming terrible (see also the horrible auto shuffling with Alexa). There is no way to have a decent offline experience on devices that are no phones (Maybe Garmin? but I am scared to try given the horrible experiences with Samsung).
I'm still wondering why they hire low qualified software developers when it comes to a feature that is supposed to be a unique selling point. My grandma would have done better and at least tested the offline mode a single time. How dumb must you be not to figure it is broken? It is not a minor glitch it is a f*****g major bug.
