My Question or Issue

 

Does the Spotify app on the iPhone have to be open while songs download to the Apple Watch?

 

The process seems to take forever, and I’d love to be able to scroll around other apps while waiting for it to complete.

Hey there @cgb223

The app shouldn't need to be open on your phone while you're downloading your content to the watch. 

 

If you're having issues with the downloading, we'd recommend checking this thread for some tips and troubleshooting steps about this. 

 

Let us know how it goes.
