The company confirmed in a statement that it is now possible to stream Spotify directly on Apple Watch. Users will be able to stream music or podcasts on Apple Watch without connecting to the iPhone. Spotify began testing this feature in a limited population in September and is now expanding the direct streaming option to all users. According to reports, this feature can be used as a server-side update. It still appears to be an extensive beta, so it may not be available to all Apple Watch users.
The music streaming service confirmed to Engadget that it has begun to roll out Spotify’s streaming function on Apple Watch. With this new feature, users can play music and podcasts on Spotify without using an iPhone. However, it seems that offline listening is not available on Apple Watch.
The German website Macerkopf reports that multiple users are seeing this feature on Apple Watch. The image shared by the publication displays the following message on Apple Watch: Do you want to stream Spotify on Apple Watch? Choose here.
According to reports, Spotify’s streaming option on Apple Watch was extended to a large group of people over the weekend. Users can use the Spotify app on Apple Watch to access their music library via Wi-Fi or cellular networks, and listen to music via Bluetooth headsets or speakers. When listening to Spotify on Apple Watch, you no longer need to connect your iPhone. Therefore, users do not have to carry their mobile phones for running or walking, but only rely on Apple Watch.
The report pointed out that there is no search function in the Spotify app on the Apple Watch. Users must rely on Siri to use this feature.
