    Does watchOS have the API to allow third parties such as Spotify to download a playlist to the watch for offline streaming while I run without the phone?

    And if they did, it'll just piss off users who lose the music stream as soon as they leave the house.

    If you weren't aware, Spotify does allow you to download playlists locally to your phone. So you can listen without having an internet connection. I really wish Spotify would create a Watch app with this offline. feature.

    Apple Music still has full watch functionality and Siri support, otherwise, I think Spotify is a way better service/app. At this point, I'm not moving back to Apple Music, so I'll continue hope Spotify gets off its ass and makes a Watch app. I'm guessing they may not be as incentivized with their rocky relationship with Apple these days.
