This is so redicoulous. Why why why? They HAVE the technology with the Snowy purchase. I don't get why they move so slow. I was so happy to be using my new Apple Watch with Spotify but would've never believed that they just don't deliver.
I am glad that I was lucky enough to download Apollo, which lets me save Spotify playlist to use offline on Apple Watch, but the user experience sucks and it is just a workaround.
The worst thing is that Spotify is acting like this is a fancy feature that we want, which we have to convince Spotify of implementing. As if this would not be something very fundamental that much more people want and that Spotify is actively working on. Why not treat this differently and say: "Guys this is on our roadmap, we are working on it. Expect the feature sometime in Qx" or whatever.
I consider Apple music more and more now. But if Deezer comes out with it, I am gone here immediately.
Very poor response from Spotify. Have been a loyal customer for many years, however, have just started an apple music membership. Offline integration with apple watch for workouts is a basic feature. Spotify needs to step up.
/... Obviously we’re all angry about Spotify’s apathy towards and lack of disclosure regarding Apple Watch streaming. No threats of leaving Spotify from me__ I just did. Cancelled by premium family membership and switched to Apple Music. I encourage others paying subscribers to do the same. When they lose their paying base, customer service might become more of a priority.
Get outside your bubble and get in touch with your customers Spotify. Whoever this moderator is would have been better of not posting. You consistently push out mediocre updates that are tend to be worse that the previous version and when we tell you what's wrong we get a meaningless response time and time again. Goodbye to Spotify.
"watchOS 6 includes new tools for developers that will allow third-party apps to stream music, radio, and podcasts, so these features will no longer be limited to Apple's own apps. Apple says Core ML on Apple Watch uses the Neural Engine, which allows for faster processing of on-device inputs."
Congratulations Spotify you have just lost a family who passionately supported you for many years and wanted to continue but due to your lack of responses and action we are now moving to Apple Music where there are no restrictions with Apple devices. Very sad when a successful company doesn't listen. Nokia, Kodak, Blockbuster, Spotify - great companies destroyed by not listening to their customers.
Extremely disappointed. I just got my first Apple Watch 5, and would've never thought that offline playing isn't possible as I saw there was an official Spotify Watch app. I wanted to go running and listen to my Spotify music without my iPhone!
Now after digging around and realizing that this doesn't work I'm really considering to move to Apple Music - after years of being a Spotify Premium subscriber. This is so ridiculous.
Spotify, any official comment? When will there be an app update to enable offline playing on Apple Watch?
