Up until now, Apple Watch users could stream their favorite songs, podcasts and playlists on their Apple Watches. Starting today, they will be able to download their favorite tracks and podcasts and listen to them using the device.
Spotify today announced that it is rolling out the ability to download playlists, podcasts and albums on Apple Watch. This feature will enable users to access their favorite audio content even when their smartphones aren’t around.
“All users are already able to play tracks, albums, playlists, and podcasts, and now Premium users will also be able to download everything they’re listening to for a true offline and phone-free experience,” Spotify wrote in a press release.
