Spotify is currently rolling out offline playbacks for its wear OS app. Its smartwatch app needed an internet connection to be able to listen to songs. That is now changing, as some users in Reddit confirmed the offline playback feature in its Wear OS app.
Wear OS, Google’s proprietary smartwatch OS recently adopted by Samsung watch 4 has been gaining loads of waves. Spotify earlier promised the offline playback feature on August 11th.
Although, to enjoy Spotify’s offline playback you need to be at least on Wear OS 2.0 or newer. And, the feature is only available for its premium subscribers.
Here’s how Spotify says its premium users can have the feature.
- From your watch, find the music and podcasts you want to download on your watch.
- Tap “Download to watch.”
- To check on the progress, head over to the Downloads section on your watch.
- Once the selected playlists, albums, or podcasts in your library are downloaded, you’ll see a little green arrow next to their names.
- Connect your headphones and start listening, no matter where you are!

Spotify recently told TheVerge it will be adding AirPlay 2 support to its iOS app. Despite the delay, the company is “working to make a reality”. Spotify had a poor relationship with the Apple company.
The streaming company has previously accused Apple of Antitrust and Anti-competitive claims. A Spotify community forum initially claimed that Spotify won’t support AirPlay 2. This is because of “audio driver compatibility issues” for iOS.
However, the streaming company has dismissed those claims and will be supporting the casting system. Apple’s AirPlay is the company’s proprietary version of Chromecast. It’s Siri connectivity, voice control, and sync of its products across speakers, televisions, and streaming services.
Google’s Wear OS is fast becoming the default smartwatch OS across the board, and Spotify keeps updating its apps across the different operating systems.
