    Hello!

    Does anyone know what's going on with Snowy? I know that earlier this year they were working with Spotify on Legal but it's been about 5 months since I've heard anything. Really looking forward to this for my LTE S3 watch. Cheers!

    He works for / with Spotify now. No ETA on the watch app though.

    Doubt anything is going to happen.

    People have been requesting this for YEARS.
    If they don't release something soon, they're gonna start having people cancel and move to AM

    Agreed. When I tried AM it was a hot mess.
    UI was terrible

    Did the same but it’s been redesigned and actually pretty damn slick now. The watch part is amazing as well. Went for a run yesterday - 12 km without anything but my watch and AirPods - truly a game changer for me

    I gotta stick with Spotify because I have a family plan that I share my friends with.
    Would rather not add them to my “family” plan on my Apple account.

    Looks like Apple's plan to make people move over to their music service is working...

    I got 6 months AM free, hoped it would be good enough to switch me over now have my LTE watch but I cannot get on with it, I might be getting old but Spotify is so much easier for me, AM interface doesn't work well IMO, hopefully an official Spotify app will be out soon

    I moved from Google Music to Apple Music and was happy. Then I moved to Spotify from Apple Music and new I found my end game, lol! I actually tried Pandora recently and found Spotify actually did Pandora better than Pandora did Pandora! Reasons:

    Music discovery/radio ~ ability to pick up songs I like
    Spotify A+ I have 5 daily mixes that range from pop to Christian to classical to old school rock and I have so many wonderful playlists based off of the radio feature.
    Apple Music C It Works.
    Google Music F GARBAGE!!!
    Pandora C Not really any better than Apple Music.

    In addition I have an HTC One M9 strapped to a little mini amp for using headphones. After launching spotify I can control it with the iphone that’s not connected to anything, so I’ve got a wire free remote.

    But the biggest, coolest feature for me? I can have my music when I play Forza 7! :D

    Tl;dr Come back to the dark side.
