Until recently, Apple Watch users could only stream their favorite songs, podcasts and playlists on their Apple watches. From May 21, they will be able to download and listen to their favorite songs and podcasts using the device.
Spotify has announced that Apple Watch will release the ability to download playlists, podcasts and albums. This feature allows users to access their favorite audio content even when their smartphones are off.
“All users are already able to play songs, albums, playlists and podcasts,” Spotify wrote in a statement, “Premium users can now download everything they ask for for a real offline and phone-free experience.
