Huge announcement at yesterday's WWDC 2019. WatchOS 6 will allow third party apps to stream audio. SPOTIFY PLEASE UPDATE YOUR APP and allow us to stream audio via cellular so that we can keep out phones at home/in the locker when we work out!!!
Emphatically agree. This is woefully, ashemedly overdue. An embarrassment to Spotify and a slap in our faces. Sometimes it seems as though we aren’t getting the whole story. How does freebie pandora pull this off already and paid-for Spotify cannot? What are we paying for? Spotify, listen up!: get this done or you’re going to lose a million more subscribers. Your inaction and lack of forthright communication leaves a bitter, bitter taste in our mouthes. We will bail soon enough if you don’t get this fixed. Call our bluff.
Yes, please! Spotify this is an absolute MUST. Please bring WI-FI streaming to an indepedent Spotify watchOS app! People in gyms everywhere NEED this! I do not want to have to switch to Apple music, especially when the Spotify UI and options are superior... but there is absolutely no reason I should have to bring my phone to the gym in 2019.
@Peter Why even bother replying with such a non answer? Why is this company so bad at making a decision and a proper statement about this? I moved to apple music because how rubbish the watch app for spotify was but would move back if I knew this feature was planned. But with the way you acting like you don't care about your users well...there are alternatives around and I am sure one will make this feature.
After many years of using Spotify, I cancelled our Spotify account because of the lack of the ability to stream music to an Apple Watch device. I will *happily* switch back from Apple music family streaming to Spotify if Spotify adds this feature.
