Offline playback is BAREBONES functionality on a sports watch. +1 on this issue. I’m sick and tired of waiting. I’ve paid for premium for 5 years now and they still haven’t implemented this feature. I’m considering taking my money and moving it elsewhere at this point.
I can't believe I haven't checked it in advance. I've just migrated from AM and this is so unexpected not to be able to listen to Spotify music from Apple Watch without a phone. Looks like I have to move back 😞
This really is a poor show. Just started the AM free trial now, had the watch for almost 2 years and didn't realise this was not possible. My other half has just purchased so she can listen to music while out running, wait until I explain it's not possible on Spotify - will not go down well I think.
This is one of the main bugbears I have with Spotify (and Apple to be honest). Having this on your roadmap in 2018 and still no news in 2020 is not good optics. I've had to cancel my Family Premium subscription and move to Apple Music so that I can get this functionality. The moment Spotify include this, I'll move back but for now 100% of my subscription money is going to Apple.
