Spotify is one of the most popular music streaming services and its application is available on a range of platforms ranging from computers and consoles to smartphones to smartwatches, allowing users to play music from a wide variety of devices.
Now, for the recently launched Google Wear OS 3, the Spotify application has been updated to add new functionality: support for offline playback. At the moment, however, it is only limited to smartwatches with the Wear OS 3 operating system.
This means that Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, Fossil Gen 6 smartwatches (2022), Mobvoi TicWatch E3, Michael Kors Gen 6 Bradshaw, Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 GPS and Mobvoi TicWatch Pro 3 Cellular/LTE are compatible with this new feature , but we expect support for more devices soon.
If you are using any of the above devices, here is a step-by-step guide on how to download songs to your smartwatch offline using the Spotify app.
How to download Spotify songs on smartwatch
Before proceeding, please ensure that you are a Spotify Premium Member as the feature is limited to Premium Members only. Users of the free version will still see the download button but it won’t do anything.
Step 1: Open the Spotify app on your smartwatch. Make sure your watch and the application are already paired with your phone.
Step 2: When the Spotify app opens, swipe left on your smartwatch screen to go to the menu page.
Step 3: Now choose a playlist or an album that you want to download from the list.
Step 4: Now you will see a button called “Download to View” and clicking that button will start the download process.
That is it. Once the process has started, it shouldn’t take much time and the songs should be downloaded in a few minutes. But while the process is going on, make sure not to disconnect your watch from the smartphone or the internet or else the song download process will stop.
It is also noteworthy that Spotify does not allow users to play the downloaded songs through the smartwatch speaker at the moment. The songs downloaded for offline use on your watch must be played through connected earphones.
