Tech Desk: Spotify reported on Saturday that they are working on a feature where offline music listening is available for the Apple smartwatch users.
Apple Watch users would now be able to experience phone-free offline listening. Spotify, in another promotion, discusses how you can “download your playlists to take your Zen with you.” Nonetheless, a premium subscription is needed to let you listen to your favorite playlists on your smartwatch. That means users can leave their phones at home when they go jogging or cycling.
To download songs or podcasts, the users can click the three dots option () next to an album, playlist, or podcast and click ‘Download to Apple Watch.’ Once downloaded, green bolts will populate next to the title of the playlists, albums, and podcasts that are downloaded on your Apple Watch. One can pair the headphones with the watch and stream the downloaded music.
Users can handle playback with the new feature, flawlessly playing, stopping, and skipping tracks or webcast scenes directly from their wrist.
Overall this new experience for Spotify on Apple Watch is rolling out to all users globally throughout the next few weeks.
