The Spotify Wear OS app has been updated to allow offline playback as well as downloading songs and podcasts directly to your smartwatch.

However, there is a catch. To use the new feature, your smartwatch must be running Wear OS 2.0 or later. Only Spotify Premium subscribers can download songs, albums, and playlists to listen to offline.

New Spotify Wear OS Update:

Spotify has previously stated that this upgrade will take a "few weeks" to go out, which explains why many people have yet to receive it. The Verge has confirmation from the company that the rollout has started. The Apple Watch has previously received the Spotify offline playback functionality.

However, there are a few restrictions to offline playback on Wear OS: Only Spotify Premium subscribers will be able to download albums and playlists for offline listening, according to a Spotify blog. Your watch must be running Wear OS 2.0 or newer to use the feature. Podcasts can be downloaded for offline listening by both premium and free users.

How to Get Albums, Playlists, and Podcasts on Your Spotify Wear OS App

According to a blog post on the Spotify website, Wear OS users can download albums, playlists, and podcasts to the Spotify Wear OS app as follows:

1. Open the Spotify Wear OS app and search for the music or podcast you want to download.

2. Select "Download to Watch" from the menu.

3. Go to the Downloads section of the app to see how far your download has progressed.

4. A green arrow will display next to the names of your selected music or podcast once they have been downloaded. After that, all you have to do is plug in your headphones and start listening!
