Offline Apple Watch playback ultimatum


Offline Apple Watch playback ultimatum


Hey there,


I’ve seen the several years worth of people clamoring for an update to enable offline playback on Apple Watch, including a reply in September that provided no real additional information. As a loyal customer for several years, I have no desire to switch to Apple Music. But as the owner of a new and expensive smart watch, I cannot continue with Spotify unless this basic functionality is added. 

So, here’s the ultimatum: Apple Music allows a three month free trial. I’m going to use them exclusively for running playlists during that time. If there isn’t an offline-enabled, no-iPhone-required Apple Watch app by September, I’m ending my account with Spotify and making the switch.
