As promised by Spotify, the offline playback feature is now rolling out for Wear OS smartwatches. In the Google I/O event and later in Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 event, we got the hint to get the feature soon. Early than expected, the company has dispatched a needy function to the listening users. It will let you download any playlists or podcasts on their smartwatch and directly listen to the song via Bluetooth headsets or earbuds. It will allow you to leave behind your phone while jogging or in an outdoor workout.
The Spotify Offline Playback feature is available for Premium as well as free users but with restrictions. The free users can also use it, but they can only download Podcasts. To download music playlists & songs users need to upgrade to the Spotify Premium subscription. The process is simple. Download the Spotify app from Play Store, and choose the songs or albums you want to get offline. Finally, tap on the Download button, and it will be saved on your watch to listen to in the future.
As we checked on various forums, Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, TicWatch Pro 3 & Oppo Watch are currently receiving the app update. The other Wear OS watches received it in the US & in some European countries. And Samsung’s new Galaxy Watch 4 & Watch 4 Classic are getting in South Korea. The new Galaxy watches still have to reach many users in other regions, so they might also receive it when they get their smartwatch.
