Spotify With Apple Watch That Will Give It Offline Playback & Much More
Hi all, thanks for your patience and understanding. I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be working closely with Spotify to bring Snowy to the Apple Watch as part of an official Spotify iOS app. Spotify’s powerful iOS SDK made it possible to develop Snowy, but I can’t wait to take things to the next level with the expertise and tools available at Spotify. While I can’t give any estimates as to when it’ll be available, you can rest assured that a Spotify Apple Watch companion app is in the pipeline.
Rumors suggested that the Snowy App will feature offline playback through the Apple Watch so that people would be able to listen to music without iPhone, Siri support, swipe-based playback control, multiple real-time complications support and more interestingly music control through the movement of hand like “flick of the wrist”. However, Andrew Ching didn’t make it clear that all these features would be present into the Watch or not.
The release date of Watch is not officially announced yet and more details about the Snowy is not available because Spotify has not comment anything about it. Spotify announced that they had over 50 million paid subscribers in March 2017, which is grown by 10 million from the September 2016 as in September 2016 it had 40 million subscribers. While Apple music has 20 million paid subscribers in December 2016 in near about two years.
