The Spotify app on Apple Watch will now allow you to download songs. The music streaming giant has pledged to offer this new feature in the coming weeks on its WatchOS application. It will therefore be possible to listen to music offline via the connected watch. No need for an iPhone anymore!
Since last November, the Spotify application available on Apple Watch has made it possible to stream music directly from the connected watch . De facto, users wishing to listen to music during their sports sessions or their walks are no longer forced to carry their iPhone. The option goes through WiFi or 4G (if you have a cellular model).
More recently, Spotify announced the arrival of an offline mode for Apple Watch . “We are deploying the ability to download your favorite playlists, albums and podcasts to Apple Watch,” Spotify said in a statement on its website.
HOW TO DOWNLOAD MUSIC TO YOUR APPLE WATCH FROM SPOTIFY?
Before going for a walk, or to the gym, you can download your favorite songs to the connected watch. To listen to them, via AirPods for example, you will neither need a 4G connection nor your iPhone . “Premium users will be able to download whatever they listen to for a true offline and phone-free experience,” says the number 1 in music streaming. Unsurprisingly, the option is reserved for paying subscribers.
To download songs to your Apple Watch, you must first go to the Spotify iOS app . A new “Download on Apple Watch” option will soon appear in the interface. Here’s the procedure to follow :
- Find the music and podcasts you want to download from Spotify
- Press the three small dots
- Choose Download to Apple Watch
To check the progress of downloads, Spotify prompts you to go to the Downloads section of the watch. Once the downloads are complete, the app will display a small green arrow next to the selected songs. This long-awaited new feature will be available worldwide in the coming weeks.
