Downloading music on Apple Watch

Hey folks!

Here's a few tips & tricks to share about downloading music from Spotify on your Apple Watch! - If you're looking to get started, check this out!

 

Not seeing the 'Download to Apple Watch'-button yet? This feature is still rolling out to Spotify Premium users! If you don't have it yet, it might appear soon! Be sure to keep your app up-to-date and have the Spotify app installed on your Apple Watch as well! 

 

Want to download Liked Songs? Just add them to a playlist and use the steps from this page to download them to your Apple Watch. 

 

Downloads keep stopping? Make sure your Apple Watch is on and the Spotify app is open on your Watch. After a bit of time, your Apple Watch might suspend the app if you're not using it actively so be sure to keep it in focus.

 

Downloads not working? Your Apple Watch battery might be a bit too low to download. Make sure your Apple Watch is charged or on a charger to start downloading. 

 

Want to check (the status of) your downloads? On your Apple Watch, swipe right to Your Library and choose for 'Downloads'. There you should be able to find everything you've downloaded and the status of your downloads.

 

Got any more tips to share? Post them here!

Any timeline for when the feature will roll out to those that don’t have it yet?

Announced in May - “Available Now!” Mid June and it’s still not available. For a company that does only one thing Spotify sure does move slowly

I jumped the gun and canceled my Apple Music subscription for this…

It’s almost been a month since Spotify announced this being available…still not working on a fully updated iWatch 6 paired with an iPhone Pro Max 12 running Spotify version 8.6.30.968

Need an ETA even if its pessimistic!!!! Better to underpromise and over deliver than overpromise and under deliver.

It is also not available in Germany.
Let's just wait a little longer. 1-2 years maybe?

 

Streaming to the Apple Watch also bugs around so hard. We just need the offline feature.

Appreciate you have to toe the party line, but soon is relative. Is there an actual estimate for when this will be released? Or some information about what the hold-up is?

 

It was "in the coming weeks" over a month ago, so I'm sure you can appreciate that "soon" doesn't really help.

Hi there folks,

 

Thank you for your posts in this thread.

 

We suggest that you always keep your OS and app up to date.

 

@3nwqfk1tjpkg5ao - can you try to unpair the watch with Spotify and then connect it again? Another useful step to try is to perform a clean reinstall of the app. This will make sure there's no old cache files causing this.

 

Just to confirm, do you see the option to download music offline? If you do, can you send us a screenshot so that we can have a closer look directly from your end.

 

We'll be on the lookout for your replies.

 

Take care!

Any idea when people can actually expect this feature and not a pretty press release for the tech blogs to salivate over? It's finally summer in the northern hemisphere, and I'd sure like to be able to use this app that I pay for instead of having to jump between a few other deeply inferior apps...

Hi folks! 

 

Thanks for reaching out about this. 

 

We can confirm that this feature is going to be officially implemented. However, it's still being rolled out to all users. We can't commit to a specific timeline for this to be completely rolled out. 

 

In this case, we suggest that you keep the app up to date.

 

Hope this clears things up. If you have any questions, just let us know.
