Spotify is rolling out a new feature that allows you to music right from your Apple Watch, the audio streaming, and media services provider confirmed in an interview to The Verge.
Since the application’s launch in 2018, the Apple Watch worked primarily as a virtual controller for Spotify music playing on an iPhone or Spotify Connect-compatible device.
But once the new feature is released, everyone will be able to stream music from Spotify on their Apple Watch to Bluetooth headphones or speakers when your phone isn’t nearby.
Ian Carlos Campbell has been to access the streaming feature, and he talked about setting it up.
Firstly, on the music player screen, tap the devices menu at the bottom-right corner. If you’ve got the streaming feature, you ought to see your Apple Watch at the highest of the list (and for him, that had a “beta” tag ahead of the watch name)
Once you tap that, the application will then bring a dialogue box that prompts you to pick from a Bluetooth device connected to your Apple Watch, like your AirPods or a Bluetooth speaker nearby. Select the device of your choice, and music will automatically start streaming.
The streaming feature requires that you simply have an Apple Watch Series 3 or later, watchOS 6.0 or later, a cellular or Wi-Fi connection, and therefore the latest version of the Spotify app, as seen in the Spotify support document.
Streaming isn’t the only recent feature added to Spotify’s Apple Watch application: the audio streaming and media services provider added the feature to ask Siri to play music through the Apple Watch in April
