My Question or Issue

Good Morning,


I use the offline functionality of the Spotify Wear OS app to listen to podcasts while running. I have a dedicated playlist and before my run I fill it with two to three podcasts on my phone. 

I then go to my watch where I download the complete playlist to my watch. This works sufficiently well.




1) When I play a podcast from the playlist, I cannot skip to the next or previous podcast in my playlist. I only have the 15 seconds forward or backward buttons.


2) When I tap on the playlist on my watch, it says: 0 Songs, 3 hrs 17 minutes, with the image of the  first podcast as icon above and below it the name of the playlist with the play button (and shuffle icon in small). Below that the function " Remove from Watch" but no reference to the individual podcasts contained in the playlist!


Is this a bug or am I missing something? many thanks.

Hey @metSpekjes,

Thanks for the post!


Currently this is how the Wear OS app works for podcasts. You can only skip +/- 15 sec. 


What you can try is to add each podcast episode to a different playlist to download on your watch, or download individual podcast episodes.


Hope this helps. Don't hesitate to reach out again if you have questions.
