Spotify officially released an independent app for the Apple Watch back in November 2020. However, it was not a “full” app because the Apple Watch version, unlike the smartphone version, did not allow downloads or supported offline playback. This meant that you would still need an internet connection. This means you either bring your iPhone or you have the Apple Watch cellular model.
If you’re hoping for a less data-intensive experience, you’re in luck, as Spotify has since announced an update to its Apple Watch app that now supports music downloads for offline playback. Of course, this assumes that users have a Spotify Premium account, as downloads and offline playback are features of Premium.
Spotify: “Starting today we offer the possibility to download your favorite playlists, albums and podcasts to the Apple Watch. All users can already play tracks, albums, playlists and podcasts. Now premium users can also download everything they hear for a true offline and phone-free experience. This is in addition to all other Spotify functions of the Apple Watch – from Connect & Control to streaming to Siri. “
That being said, we should point out that the Apple Watch Series 6 has a maximum capacity of 32GB. So if you have particularly large libraries, you should keep an eye on your storage.
