The Apple Watch has been out for over five years now and Spotify has only just added support for the ability to download podcasts and music to the watch to use when untethered from an iPhone. Something Apple Music and Apple Podcasts has been able to do for ages.
Spotify spoke to Engadget and said:
“We’re focused on developing experiences that enable users to listen to Spotify wherever and whenever they want — regardless of the device or platform. After an initial testing period, we are now rolling out streaming capabilities for Spotify on the Apple Watch.”
The update is out now.
