Install and use Spotify on your smart watch
When you're working out, the last thing you want to do is stop to change your playlist. Well, if you have a Samsung smart watch or fitness band, you can control and listen to Spotify right from your wrist. All you need is a connected phone with a Spotify account. Now you can finish exercising without taking any breaks.
Some Spotify features on smart watches or fitness bands require a Premium account.
Install Spotify on Your Smart Watch or Fitness Band
Before you can start listening to music on your smart watch or fitness band, you'll need to download Spotify and install it.
On your phone, navigate to and open the Galaxy Wearable app. Navigate to and touch Galaxy Store or Galaxy Apps. Touch the Search icon, and then search for and select Spotify. Touch the Download icon, and then touch Allow and download. The app will now be installed on your smart watch or fitness band. Don't forget to also download Spotify on your phone.
Note: On some fitness bands, you may need to touch SETTINGS, and then touch Galaxy Apps.
Set Up Spotify on Your Smart Watch
If you have a Premium Spotify account, you can stream music directly to your smart watch.
Open Spotify on your phone and log into or create an account. Then, on your watch, press the Home key and then navigate to and open Spotify. Allow the different permissions, and then touch Log In to Stream. Touch Pair on Phone; you may be asked to log into your account on the phone again. Touch PAIR, and now your watch and phone will be paired.
On some watch models, you'll need to listen to the music through Bluetooth headphones. On other models, like the Galaxy Watch, the music can play through the watch's speakers.
Note: If you are free user, touch Not Yet instead of Log In to Stream, and then touch Standalone.
Set Up Spotify on Your Fitness Band
You can stream music to your fitness band too! But again, you'll need a Premium Spotify account.
On your fitness band, press the Home button and then swipe to and touch Spotify. Touch Premium User, and then touch Log in with Spotify. Enter your account information, and then touch LOGIN. From there, you can start streaming music, but you may need to have Bluetooth headphones connect to the fitness band.
Use Spotify on Your Smart Watch or Fitness Band
Spotify on your watch is a little different from the phone version. You won't be able to follow artists, but you can listen to your saved songs, and you'll have access to playlists galore.
If you are a Premium user, simply touch a song you want to play. If you are a free user, you can select a song but Spotify will automatically shuffle everything.
When a song is playing, touch the three dots at the bottom to save a song, shuffle a playlist, or adjust the volume.
Recently Played: View your recently played songs.
Featured Playlists: View suggested playlists with popular songs or artists.
Your Music: This section contains all of your favorite music. Touch Your Collection to see songs you've liked, or touch Your Playlists to see playlists you've created.
Browse: View popular songs, new releases, specific genres, and more.
Search: Use your voice to search for a certain song, artist, or genre.
Note: If you are a free user, the only available options will be Recently Played, Your Library, and Browse.
