Spotify is finally coming out to the Apple Watch, for all users coming up next week. As announced by the company today, the release also follows a beta version of the app that had also appeared in early November. It’s coming out well over a year since Spotify hired “Snowy” developer Andrew Change onto it’s team to help build the app.
Spotify also noted that the app provides consumers with a nice useful set of playback controls and also the ability to connect to their music speakers and other devices through something called Spotify Connect. Like Apple Music of course, Spotify subscribers will have the ability to hit play, pause, skip and rewind songs all by interacting with their Apple Watch.
We are always constantly on the move, if that’s either going back and forth in between the gym, school, work, errands, or just chilling, and our smartwatches are the tool to help us keep up to speed. Today, Spotify is now introducing a whole new app for the Apple Watch, giving everyone the ability to seamlessly access and control your favorite music and podcasts without missing a beat ever again.
In addition to all of this, users will have the ability to access their recently played music and to also favorite the currently playing song by just tapping the heart icon on the Apple Watch screen itself. Also, down the line, Spotify plans to make music and podcasts available to listen offline on the Apple Watch, among many other updates that have not been announced just yet.
To also get the Spotify app for the Apple Watch, the company says it’s users will need to make sure they have the latest version of the Spotify app (8.4.79), and they should also start seeing the Apple Watch version of the app over the next coming week.
