My Question or Issue

I can’t see my Apple Watch as a playback option in Spotify. I can’t see my watch at all and therefore can’t take advantage of the new feature of downloading offline to my watch. I have tried deleting the Spotify app, unpairing my watch and restoring from a backup to no avail. How can I get Spotify to recognize my watch?

Hey @Hans_Gruber 


This will be rolling out over the next several weeks. You might not be seeing the feature yet.
