How to Download Songs from Spotify on Wear OS

  1. Pick the music or podcasts you would like to download on your smartwatch from your smartwatch.
  2. Tap on Download to watch.
  3. Go to the Downloads section of your smartwatch to see how things are going.
  4. You’ll notice a small green arrow next to the names of the playlists, albums, or podcasts you’ve chosen in your library once they’ve been downloaded.
  5. Start listening with your earphones connected.

Because the Spotify application may not support an internal speaker, the smartwatch would need to connect to earphones or headphones. The Wear OS software will be able to control playback for wireless speakers, TVs, and gaming consoles via Spotify Connect.
