Spotify Apple Watch App Planned for 2018 WWDC, Claims Insider


According to MacRumors, “an anonymous and unverified tipster” claims an Apple Watch app for Spotify is in the works—and could see its debut on stage at 2018 WWDC:

The app will supposedly be a lead example of Apple’s tentatively named StreamKit framework that will enable cellular Apple Watch models to receive push notifications from third-party apps like Facebook and Twitter, completely independent from a paired iPhone, on watchOS 5.

Nearly a year ago, third party developer Andrew Chang announced on Reddit an official Spotify app for Apple Watch was coming soon, as he had been hired to work closely with the streaming music service.

The said Spotify Apple Watch app named ‘Snowy’ by Chang, would allow premium members see playback progress and control music from from the wrist, via a personalized watch face.

Apple’s 2018 developer conference takes place June 4-8 in San Jose, California, again at the McEnery Convention Center, just like in 2017.

Are you excited at the prospect of a Spotify app for Apple Watch?

    Love the nod to Rocket League 😉

    Okay so two issues I see with this:

    1. I’m not sure if Apple would take the time during a keynote to promote one of their biggest competitors to Apple Music a la “Spotify” and give them time to shine. Seems awkward.

    2. I hope this “stream kit” will not ONLY work for cellular models away from the iPhone and that it will work with all models.

    It’s about time Spotify made their app for Apple Watch. Surprisingly I thought more app creators would take advantage of widgets and Apple Watch. iMessage, Siri, 3D out/in of app support. It’s one true way to stay ahead of th competition.

    It would be good if it happens. I’d be happier to hear that Apple was allowing Spotify to be controlled by Siri.
