Thousands of years ago, before the era of Napster and Limewire, having music on-demand was just a dream among poets and learned folk. Now, we live in an age where you can skip tracks, “favorite” a song, and listen wirelessly all while training for your next self-righteous half marathon (Rob).

Spotify has smiled upon the tech world and is releasing a much-anticipated app for the iconic Apple Watch. Offering better controls, a streamlined experience, and more activities this might actually get me to remember to charge my watch.

We know the importance of having music on the go, which is why we’re excited to bring a new Spotify app to our highly mobile users on Apple Watch. With this new app, users can enjoy an improved experience with better control and the ability to seamlessly connect to your speakers or devices. And while we continue to innovate, we have many exciting things coming up —including the ability to listen to your music and podcasts offline.

The app offers a whole host of new elements and ways to customize the experience as you listen. You can pause from the watch without having to do it on the phone, save songs to your collection, and skip tracks easily to make your ears happy.

This new experience will be rolling out to Apple Watch users over the coming week. Make sure that you have the latest version (v.8.4.79) of Spotify, or download it on the App Store—and look out for more updates coming soon.

The Spotify Team

Spotify has done a brilliant job putting everything you need at your fingertips on the watch face, creating an experience that lets you stay involved in whatever task you’re doing while listening to music. Rather than taking you out of the present moment, Spotify has crafted an app that lets you customize your music moment.

So I guess I have to think of another reason to stay loyal to MySpace Music.
