The company announced on Friday that Spotify has added the ability to download playlists, albums and podcasts on Apple Watch for offline playback. Users will be able to stream audio at 96kbps, add and delete Spotify content on their phones, and synchronize with Watch.
The company said in a press release: “The ability to download music and podcasts complements the existing convenience of being able to stream your favorites from the watch, and now you don’t even have to carry your phone.”
After successfully conducting a five-week alpha public test, “Elite Danger: Adventure Tour” is now available on PC through Steam, Epic Games Store and FrontierStore. The next stage of “Elite Dangerous Evolution” allows players to come into contact with newly exposed planets, explore the ground with others or alone, and perform tasks from a first-person perspective and field observation. The expanded launch trailer can be seen in the new screenshot below…
Odyssey seamlessly integrates with Elite Dangerous’s classic Galaxy experience, adding new expansions and gaming opportunities for players, and allowing them to obtain exclusive space suits that can be used for specific purposes. Players can also use a variety of new tools, such as the gene sampler tool, which can be used by those who want to go out of the path of biological alien biology.
Frontier CEO and founder David Braben said: “This is the next step in an incredible journey and love for Elite Dangerous since Kickstarter eight years ago. Achievement is achieved-from human footprints. The wide range of details to the star system and other aspects, the rich, detailed and accurate entertainment of the Milky Way galaxy is breathtaking in a 1:1 ratio. Instead, seeing the slowly rising and falling stars, planets in the usually complicated path of the night sky , The moon, the gothic beauty of the moon of the moon, but in fact every small dot or nebula in the sky is there and you can see him.”
“Elite Dangerous: Odyssey” is available for purchase on Steam, Epic Games Store and Frontier Store at a price of £29.99/39.99/EUR 34.99, respectively. The price of the deluxe version is 34.99 GBP/44.99 GBP/39.99 Euro.
The extended version of Odyssey will be available to Xbox One and PS4 gamers this fall.
Spotify users using Apple Watch can take a sigh of relief. You can eventually download playlists, albums, and podcasts to your watch for offline use.
Spotify has stated in its official blog that offline playlists will be launched from today. All users have to do is simply select the music or podcast they want to listen to, press the three dots, and then click “Download to Apple Watch”. Then, a small green arrow will appear next to the fully downloaded content. The update also uses voice commands such as “Hey, Siri, Play My Discover Weekly Playlist on Spotify” to provide a watch with Siri’s support for Spotify. (You just have to remember to add the “On Spotify” section.)
That said, there are some warnings. To get an offline playlist, you must have an Apple Watch Series 3 or higher running at least on WatchOS 6. However, Spotify recommends running watchOS 7.1 or higher for the best experience. The watch also requires a cellular or WiFi connection, a feature available only to Spotify Premium users. Most importantly, you will need to download the latest version of Spotify on your iPhone and watch. Still dizzy!
The Spotify application on Apple Watch has experienced a long and bumpy journey. Although the first Apple Watch was released in 2015, it was not until 2018 that Spotify created an app for smart watches. Unfortunately, App Honor is nothing more than a remote control. Users who want an offline playlist for phone-free activities are forced to either switch to Apple Music, find another smart watch, or leave their mobile phone and take it with them. At the end of last year, when Spotify began introducing streaming music to Apple Watch, the situation changed.
