Spotify now available on the Samsung Gear S3 and S2

Peter, 19 December 2016

People have been asking about it and it’s finally here - Spotify just landed on the Samsung Gear S3 and Gear S2 smartwatches! It’s a bit limited, though.

For one, there’s no offline mode for Spotify Premium subscribers. You can listen over Wi-Fi and LTE, but that’s not going to work for owners of the Wi-Fi only models if they wanted to listen to music on the run. Also, Free users can stream Playlists (including Artist and Recently played lists) on shuffle mode, but only Premium subscribers can pick specific songs.

Still, the app has some cool Gear-specific features, like skipping through your playlist by rotating the bezel - you can do that without looking at the watch! Voice input is used to select songs (you can use the touchscreen, but it’s a hassle).
