Music-streaming service Spotify has finally added an Apple Watch app allowing users to not only get music playback controls, but also access playlists, favorite songs, and “DJ from your watch” with Spotify Connect speakers.
Spotify’s Apple Watch app has been long in the making. Although you could previously access playback controls like play/pause, previous/next track, and volume on your Apple Watch, the smartwatch’s default controls were pretty barebones.
The new Apple Watch app lets you do all of the above, but with just a touch more granular controls. For example, you rewind 15 seconds on a podcast, view playlists and shuffle tracks, favorite songs, and even connect to Spotify Connect devices such as a WiFi speaker or laptop.
