Thinking of giving Spotify a go seeing as I’m getting the galaxy active...can you listen to podcasts on the watch or is it mainly just listened to via the app on your phone?

During the note 9 unpacked event last year Samsung had the executive of Spotify on the stage and spoke about the partnership between Samsung and Spotify. I would be surprised if it wasn't available on the galaxy watches. Hopefully someone else will confirm.

If you want to try Spotify see if you can find one of 99p for 3 months deals.

Yes, you can listen music, podcast, and anything that's on Spotify using the Spotify Watch app. You can even download it on the watch from Spotify for offline use.

That’s great, as one of my issues or worry’s was the podcasts not having an app on the galaxy watches

I’ve got all my music on Spotify now so will set up podcasts too

Be ideal having music and podcasts when in gym for example

I bought a google hub so thought be ideal to use Spotify instead of Apple Music

I use my HomePods for radio and can still use it via air play anyway

I just did the free for 30 days then £9.99 after

The layout feels better than Apple Music

Add to do it manually add them

Luckily I only have 100 odd songs
Is this your own music or from Spotify?

I’ve got YouTube premium so I get google play music and YouTube music as part of it got £11.99 a month. My Apple Music reviews on the 9th so I could cancel. My Spotify renews in a few days. I could keep Spotify as I can use it on my echos as well as my google play minis.

How is the google home hub?

I leave my Fire HD 8 in show mode in the show mode dock which is the same as the echo show but I’ve been looking at the home hub too.

Yeah it’s from Spotify just had to search for every song

The hub not arrived yet, due tomorrow:) if it’s good may get one for bedroom too but that might be overkill
