About

Today, Spotify is introducing a new app for the Apple Watch, giving you the ability to seamlessly access and control your favorite music and podcasts without missing a beat.

Would you recommend this product?

You still need to run with your iPhone or have Apple Music on your Apple Watch if you want tunes while you run. This app does nothing more than Spotify Connect.

Pros:

None

Cons:

No LTE or offline playback on the watch

Mild maker making things

If Apple wasn't preventing Spotify from launching an app, why has this taken so long?!?!? If I could download a playlist for use offline or over LTE/Wifi that would make this the killer app.

Pros:

Can select a different playlist from the watch.

Cons:

Can't play offline or store any information offline.

@KhaosT had an app called Apollo for Watch that could do Spotify streaming, but Spotify asked him to take it down. Either Spotify is being bullied by Apple or they're trying to figure out some cleve subscription package to allow cellular streaming to get more money from us. https://twitter.com/KhaosT/statu...

Apollo for Apple Watch does what we all want it to.

Pros:

Sign of things to come, maybe?

Cons:

Doesn't actually do anything useful

Shame it's taken them this long to come out with a version of an apple watch app and it's pretty much useless

Pros:

- glorified remote

Cons:

- nothing new than what is included in Watch OS 5

- no offline mode

I’m using it in a 1st generation with watchOS 4.3.2 and it’s really slow.

Pros:

Control diferent devices

Cons:

Slow on older devices

What's the point? I have to bring my phone with me. @KhaosT already developed the app to do cellular streaming but Spotify asked him to take it down. So what are they waiting for? Probably being bullied by Apple I'm guessing...

Pros:

I can control from my watch

Cons:

Bring your phone with you!
