Issues using Airpods through Apple Watch

Casual Listener

Hi
Purchased a new pair of Apple Airpods for the purpose of listening to music from my cellular Apple Watch Series 3. It's my understanding this feature has recently been rolled out by Spotify.

I have downloaded the Spotify app on my watch and the the Airpods are showing as connected, however, I can't get them to work.

Basically, when I click on 'Michael's Apple Watch', it goes back to the play screen and the white watch icon flashes a couple of times them defaults back to the green iPhone icon. I've tried deleting the app and reinstalling and disconnecting the Airpods and reconnecting.

Has anyone had any similar issues and know how to fix it please. This is becoming incredibly frustrating!

Hey @Micky1892,

 

Thanks for reaching out to us and welcome to the Community 🙂

 

Just to double check- does the issue occur when you try playing music through the watch in Connect mode? If it does, it's important that the devices are on the same network connection.

 

It's also a good idea to check if the AirPods are connected to the intended device.

Good morning Ver

 

I have just re-installed the Spotify app onto my watch, after deleting it on Friday, and upon connecting my Airpods again, it seems to be working perfectly now.


If I have any further issues, I'll let you know.


Thanks for the response, it's appreciated 🙂
