Spotify and Apple Watch


Spotify and Apple Watch

Casual Listener



Recent Apple Watch buyer, and obviously disappointed with the app serving as nothing more than a remote to the iPhone.


Well aware of the idea linked below. However not updated since November last year and I feel Spotify owes some kind of a response to Watch owners.


So, reality is, these are two separate items. First is streaming to watch and use headphones, second is offline playback.

Spotify, your turn. What is the latest on this? There is nothing from Apple, holding you back on doing any of these, and you owe an update to device owners on whether you are really coming there that is better than ‘coming soon’ for well over 4 months. Pandora has these FYI, no reason you should not.

Hey @AnGaeL.


Thanks for getting in touch!


We are always looking for ways to improve the app. We're also aware of the over 3000 votes that the Idea you linked has.


We can't say if or when certain features will be released, but if you'd like to see Offline playback for the Apple Watch, don't forget to vote for the Idea.


Sorry we can't say more for now. If you have further questions, let us know.


Have a nice day!

That‘s cute. Any updates? Or will you just say that you can‘t say anything for now as you guys said since forever? I just recently cancelled my Spotify subscription and will be using Apple Music unless you just implement these not-so-groundbreaking-and-pretty-basic features to the Apple Watch App.

Actually I do not feel this is an acceptable answer, as it says nothing.

I think Apple Watch is a common enough device where Spotify should say something like “not in the next six months.”

I do not think there is a need for definite timelines, but this vagueness is unacceptable.


always the same lyre


The result: now I am happy with Apple Music. 

lame... back to apple music...
