Hi there!

I know it sounds simple, but it's often overlooked. Could you try restarting your device? If that doesn't help, try a quick clean reinstall of the app. Just follow these steps. Try that on both of the devices.

 

Make sure to have the latest versions for iOS, watchOS and Spotify on both devices.

 

I'd also suggest trying the Sign Out Everywhere and Remove Offline devices from your Spofiy account page.

If you're still having trouble, could you let me know the exact version of Spotify and the exact version of the operating system you're running?

I'll see what I can suggest next!

I am having the exact same issue. I cannot use the spotify app from my watch anymore. The now playing app seems to be controlling it, but when I raise my arm, the watch displays the spotify app frozen on a random song from weeks ago. Please advise.

Having the exact same problem here.

 

Restarting the watch and reinstalling Spotify does not fix the issue. 

Before reinstalling it, it froze at one of the songs I listened to days ago and now after reinstalling spotify the song disappeared but cannot play anything nor see any devices / playlists. I can control my songs from the "Now Playing" app as well.

I had the same issue since October, but I updated to the most recent WatchOS update today and I was able to successfully install the Spotify app on my Apple Watch again!

I have the same setup as OP! I tried looking everywhere and had no luck until I found this post. 

All I had to do was "sign out everywhere" then it was resolved.

 

Spotify needs to fix this because it can happen at any moment and it's usually inconvenient to sign out on the spot.

Hi

i tried what you said. I deleted app from phone and reinstalled. I turned off Apple Watch and back on. I am not able to use the Spotify app on my Apple Watch unless Bluetooth is enabled between my watch and my phone. Ie if I go for a run without my phone Spotify does not work. A friend told me hers works. Please help. I updated to the latest iOS earlier today
