Music streaming services Spotify and Apple Music are the most popular in the world, with Spotify having a market share of nearly 31% and Apple Music coming in at 15%. A wide range of devices can be used, including wearables, with this app.
With Garmin and Apple Watches, we’ve already talked about Spotify integration. Now, let’s see how to connect Spotify to a Samsung Galaxy Watch.
As a result, Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 (powered by Wear 3.0, Google’s latest operating system) is a departure from its previous Tizen-powered watches (Galaxy Watch, Watch 3, Active 2). Like other Android Wear watches, the Spotify app on the Galaxy Watch 4 is identical to the one found on other devices.
Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic is one of the best smartwatches for Spotify users thanks to its 16 GB of storage and LTE connectivity.
Setup of Spotify on the Samsung Gear S4/S4 Classic
Your Galaxy Watch 4 must have the following components in order to use Spotify:
- Spotify’s paid subscription (If you want to download the songs for offline playback)
- The Spotify app installed on a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone
- The ability to connect to the Internet or use LTE.
- A pair of Bluetooth earbuds
If the watch doesn’t already have the app, you’ll need to download it and install it after you’ve completed the other requirements.
Here’s how you can get Spotify running on your Galaxy Watch 4:
Step by step instructions for installing Spotify on your Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic are provided below:
- On your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, swipe up from the home screen to reveal the notifications bar.
- Locate and tap on the Play Store icon.
- The magnifying glass icon can be accessed by swiping to the right.
- Alternatively, you can use the voice dictation feature to type in Spotify’s name in the search bar.
- Download and install Spotify on the Galaxy Watch by pressing the “Install” button.
- Immediately after installation, launch Spotify by tapping on the ‘Spotify Icon.’ It will direct you to the pairings page..
- It’s now time to connect your Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic with your compatible smartphone’s Spotify account.
Just go to the ‘Spotify’s pairing page’ on your smartphone and enter the code that you find on the watch to link your Spotify account to the Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic. The internet is required for both devices.
Simply type “Spotify” into the address bar of your browser and visit Spotify’s “Pairing” page. If you haven’t done so already, you’ll need to sign in to your account. When prompted, enter the password displayed on your Galaxy Watch to proceed further.
By connecting your Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic to Spotify, all of your music can be controlled directly from your wrist. As a bonus, you’ll be able to access all of your playlists, podcasts, and radio stations right on your wrist.
Which is the superior option? On the Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic, you have the option of listening to music through the watch’s built-in speakers or by downloading and playing it from your phone. All of your music downloads will have plenty of room on the watch’s 16 GB of storage.
A premium account and stable internet or Wi-Fi connection are required to use this feature.
A list of Frequently Asked Queries:
Does the speaker on the Galaxy Watch 4 support Spotify?
It is possible to listen to Spotify through the speaker on the watch. The Galaxy Watch 4 can also be used to listen to Spotify via Bluetooth headphones or earbuds.
It is possible to play music on the watch, smartphone or any other device that has ‘Spotify Connect’ integrated with Wear OS Spotify.
For whatever reason, you may be unable to listen to music through the speaker on your Samsung Galaxy Watch. To do this, open the Spotify desktop app or web player, locate the song or playlist you want, select the device icon, select the Watch icon, and play.
Why isn’t there a Spotify app on the Galaxy Watch 4?
Because there are so many wearable apps available on the Google Play store and the Galaxy Watch 4 runs on Wear 3.0, it should come as no surprise that there will be alternatives.
The first is ‘YouTube Music,’ which is an excellent alternative to Spotify. It has a wide selection of music, as well as ad-supported free playback.
You can also use Pandora instead of Spotify. It’s a competitor to Spotify and is well-known for its ability to create user-created radio stations.
Aside from those, there are two other options to Spotify worth mentioning: “iHeart Radio” and “Wear Casts.”
Does the Galaxy Watch 4 have a built-in Spotify app?
As long as you’re a Spotify Premium member, you can download a tonne of music and podcasts to your Galaxy Watch 4/4Classic for offline listening.
Using the Spotify app, search for the song or podcast you’d like to save for later offline listening on your watch and then choose it from the drop-down menu. Use the ‘download on watch’ icon to save it for later use when you are not connected to the internet.
A well-integrated and simple-to-use app, Spotify is available on the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4. To listen to your favourite songs, albums, and playlists, you can use the watch’s built-in music player. Also, if you’re a Spotify Premium member, you can download music to your watch for offline listening.
