I am very excited to announce that Samsungs new wearable Flagship, the Samsung Gear S3 will be a Smartwatch with Spotify on it. Once you download the Spotify app to the Gear S3 you can stream your favorite Spotify songs via Wifi or LTE.
Thanks to the spotify android wear app you can leave your smartphone at home when you go for a workout. Just pair your smartwatch with wireless earbuds and start your training.
No matter if you are on your running workout in the gym or walking around at home you will be able to listen to your most beloved Spotify music.
Samsung Gear S3 & Spotify app functionalities
According to the Spotify support page here, with the Spotify app for android wear you can:
- Start and hold your tracks
- Skip songs
- Adjust audio volume
- Load songs from your personal spotify library
- Browse lists on spotify
- Play your Spotify Radio and enjoy your favorite radio station
Another article at wareable.com states that there is currently no offline mode included in your android wear app. Because of this you need to stay connected via Wifi or LTE. An offline mode would of course be very nice, too.
Nevertheless, I bet this simple app adds real value to android wear smartwatch users.
