The most important feature of smartwatches is how they allow you to perform many actions without even picking up your smartphone. There are many features on Samsung Galaxy watches that enable this to be possible. One of these includes offline Spotify music playback. This guide will show you how to list to music offline via Spotify on your Samsung Watch.

Having music offline is very useful for listening when you go working out or running. Once you have your favorite music downloaded offline, you can then connect to a pair of headphones, and you are good to go. This feature also helps you to save on mobile data if you have LTE on your smartwatch.

Now before we proceed, you need to understand that you need a premium subscription on your Spotify account on your Samsung Watch (or any other device) to be able to listen to Spotify offline. With that said, let’s get started.

How to Play Spotify Music Offline on Your Samsung Watch

  1. First off, you need to make sure that you have installed the Spotify app on your smartwatch and your paired iOS or Android device as well.
  2. Signing in to Spotify may be a little different depending on the Samsung Watch model you use. You might get a prompt to pair with your phone or be asked to enter your login details, or the watch app might automatically connect with the Spotify app on your smartphone.
