My Question or Issue

Hello, 

Thank you for brining offline listening to the Apple Watch! I have attempted to follow the instructions by clicking the three dots on a playlist on my iPhone to "Download to Apple Watch" however that option does not exist.  I am only able to download to my iPhone.

Is this feature generally available for all users now? I've updated my iPhone/Watch to latest version of Spotify and OS and am a premium subscriber. 

Thank you!

I am from Singapore and the feature is not available here too. Announcing a new feature that no one in the world has it. Then why announce it in the first place. Get it ready before making an announcement for God's sake!

Still nothing here in Switzerland. What a shame, I bought an Apple Watch for this feature 😞

I am currently using Premium version 8.6.30.968 on a Family plan and the feature download to Apple Watch still  not visible

I understand that the Spotify premium app download to Apple Watch feature is available, but not currently to all Spotify Premium users, but it is being rolled out to all premium users.  Can you please tell me when this might be available to all users? 1 week? One month? 3 months?. Is it being rolled out on a regional basis?

This feature is still being rolled out. 

 

We suggest that you always keep your app up to date and that you're running the latest OS version.

Would it be possible for those interested to join an alpha or beta program, in order to allow them to benefit from Apple Watch playlist downloads During testing rollout

Thanks for the response Jeremy. Like others have mentioned, the language on the website makes it seem that this feature is currently available for all users. Collectively we've spent hours and have felt frustrated trying to get it to work only to find out it's not fully rolled out. I doubt there would be as much frustration had the status been properly communicated from the get go, so that we did not waste our time.

That would have been great to know, that the feature has not been rolled out. Information on your site makes it seem like it is available. As a longtime spotify user, I just purchased an apple watch for the sole purpose of being able to listen to songs on the go without the need for my phone.  I am now forced to switch to apple music to use on my phone, and if this update continues to drag on I will be canceling my subscription.

Just to give some sort of feedback. So far, still unavailable here. Will ping again next week.

It’s been well over a couple weeks at this point. Is there any chance we could get a breakdown on when different regions will be enabled? This has been a feature that I have been looking for for 3 years now.

Hey folks,

 

Thanks for your posts.

 

As @MattSuda, has previously mentioned, these new Apple Watch features are still rolling out to all users.

 

So keep you apps up-do date so you get the new release as soon as it becomes available in your region.

 

Cheers.

Spotify, why does it take "several weeks" to roll this update out? Others, Apple, etc. do it in a week or two and you can usually manually update quickly.

Same here... I've been a Spotify customer for 10+ years and bought an Apple Watch last week just for this sole purpose only to find out it's not yet available in my account. I've been waiting for this functionality for the past 2-3 years. I've just started a free 3-month trial of Apple Music in the meantime where I have replicated all of my Spotify playlists into. If they take too long, I will ditch Spotify and stick to Apple Music since the integration with the Apple Watch is working seamlessly for me.

Just bought a watch literally a few hours ago. For the sole purpose to be able to go for a run without taking my phone. Now I read that its not available yet.... even though the newspost doesnt indicate anything about a partial rollout ...

Hey @afav  @frankielc  @opayne93 

 

The ability to download for offline listening to the Apple Watch app is still rolling out over the next several weeks. Hopefully you see it soon!

Would have been great to add the information that not everyone can use this feature right away due to the rollout taking several weeks on your official website. 
Thanks for making me waste about 2 hours by reinstalling spotify on my phone and apple watch over and over again and trying to figure out why it‘s not working.
