But until Spotify upgrades its app, the only choice is to make a compromise. Here are your options. The Spotify Watch App is really good—if your iPhone is nearby.
How can we help you?
Play Spotify on Apple Watch Offline without iPhone
If you're a Spotify subscriber with an Apple Watch , you can control playback straight from your wrist. It means you don't have to reach for your smartphone to skip tracks or select a new playlist — whether that's out on a run or walking around the house. With the official Spotify app, Apple Watch owners can now do more than just pause and skip tracks: custom playlists and Spotify Connect are both at your disposal if you download. However, not all features are available just yet, and you might not know how to download the Spotify app. Read on to download the Spotify app, and learn just what you can and can't do with Spotify on your Watch. Like the old Spotify functionality, you can pause, skip forward and back the music playing from the Apple Watch itself. It may surprise you but the Spotify Apple Watch app offers pretty extensive control over selecting and playback of music, straight from the wrist.
Try Apple Music
I am looking at buying the Apple Watch 5 series. I want to use it when I go for runs and not have to take my phone with me. This includes tracking my runs and listening to music.
Subscriber Account active since. Spotify has revolutionized the way we listen to music. The streaming service, which offers more than 35 million songs, allows you to listen to pretty much any artist or album you could think of, regardless of whether you're at home or on the go. You can even play Spotify on your Apple Watch , if you own one.
