My Question or Issue

I just bought a Apple Watch.

Every time I want to choose the Watch as the device to stream from, the watch symbol only blinks and never connects. 

I reinstalled the app and disconnected the headphones multiple times, restarted the watch multiple times, I tried it with different bluetooth headphones, nothing works. 

At first, I tried it at home. I could choose every device in my household  and used the watch as a remote without problems. But when I chose the watch, it only blinked and didn't play anything. 

Ok, maybe it doesn't work with the iPhone still connected and in range. 

But outside without WiFi or the iPhone in range, it didn't work either. 

Every other app works and I can send messages. 

Is this a known problem? Is there a workaround? Did I miss something?

Hey @Distra,


Thanks for writing about this here in the Community. 


Have you already tried disconnecting all the other devices you stream Spotify from and then trying again with the watch as a remote and connecting one other device at the time? Just to double-check if you're facing a temporary error which this type of refresh could solve.


Let us know how you get on. We'll look out for your reply!
