Samsung has collaborated with other brands like Under Armour and Lonely Planet for more exclusive features.
For this summer, Samsung is bringing more features to its music streaming app by adding offline playback mode to Spotify. You can now save your playlists to year Gear S3 Classic or Frontier wearables. There is Samsung’s very own music app but having Spotify makes the smartwatch more special than ever.
Inside the app, you will see a Listen Offline mode. You can download this from the Gear app store. Sign in to your Spotify account and wait before you can check your playlist, download, or play your favorite songs to your heart’s content.
The South Korean tech giant hasn’t made any big announcement yet but it was spotted on the Swedish website. Interestingly, the page has since been pulled. The smartwatch has a built-in speaker so you can play your favorite playlist even when offline. As with the mobile version of Spotify, you are free to browse the charts, search for songs or artists, scroll through the playlists, and control audio playback on the Spotify for the Gear S3.
