[Developer] How can you force downloads to Iwatch

[Developer] How can you force downloads to Iwatch

I have all updated software on my phone and on my watch and I have the latest spotify app loaded on my I Watch 5.  It downloaded about half of my podcasts and now it won't download anymore.  It downloaded 4 and I have 3 more to go.  It's just stuck.  I have tried to restart everything, turn off bluetooth and turn back on but no success.  I have also made sure that they are both on the same WIFI.  


Can Spotify let me know when a download has completed?  That would be great.

How do they download?  WIFI, Bluetooth or a combination?

This app seems to have the same issue as the Podcast app from Apple. Coincidence?


I Have cellular on my Iwatch and when I try to listen live it works about a third of the time.  Most of the time I have to restart my watch and that takes 5-10 minutes and most of my walking has already started.

Hi there @12129655431


Thanks for reaching out about this here in the Community. 


First up, we suggest that you perform a clean reinstall of the app on your phone. This process is more thorough than the usual one.


If this doesn't do the trick, could you try the following steps?:


  • Restart the devices.
  • Reinstall the app on the watch.
  • Re-pair the watch with your phone.

On another note, we'd recommend taking a look at this article for more info about how Spotify works on the watch.


Keep us posted on how it goes.
