This is very poor engagement with your customer-base. I am a long term user of Spotify Premium but thave today started the trial of Apple Music - SIMPLY BECAUSE THERE IS NO APP AND NO RESPONSE OR INITIATIVE FROM SPOTIFY
I would really like to have an update on this. The Apple Watch is not a niche product anymore, and I think it makes sense to have an option. I know Spotify is having some issues with Apple at the moment regarding subscription call to actions, but providing the watch app without a CTA makes sense since the vast majority of users are going to have the iOS app already.
Can you please reply, at least, is it possible techincally to have offline playlists on Apple Watch without iphone around?
What's the point of hiding it?
You can either tell, that it is possible and you are working on it, so I will wait calmly or you cat tell, that there is no technical posiblity - so only Apple Music can have such a feature - then we can blame Apple and make it loud, because it is unfair play.
This how Fitbit lost me as a customer, I have an Apple Watch now and I'm not going to change things any time soon. I don't want to leave Spotify but It's time that you supported, what a lot of customers are asking for.
After trying both the free trial for Spotify and Apple Music I decided to go with Spotify because of the playlists and Spotify has music that is not on Apple Music. However after buying an Apple Watch and just assuming a big music company like Spotify would have an app for the watch, I found out to my disappoint that they do not. Hopefully an app is in the works because I do not want to go back to Apple Music but with the watch it just doesn't make sense to stay at Spotify. Hopefully Spotify will hold true with that is on their website and really allow you to "play on all your devices". I am very skeptical that Spotify will come to the Apple Watch because this is the 2nd gen of Apple Watch and still no Spotify. Please bring Spotify to Apple Watch or I guess it is back to Apple Music.
It turns out that when you are playing Spotify on your iPhone, a Spotify watch application appears magically in the watch dock, where the Apple Music app normall is. This app lets you forward/ pause, control the volume and vote thumb up or thumb down. Then sometimes the Apple Music app is in the dock even though I don't want it there and I cannot find the Spotify app anywhere, even if I reboot the watch. Getting closer but not there yet!
Anybody have any insight on where the Spotify watch app comes from and how to get it back when the Apple Music app gets its hooks into the watch?
