Spotify says its new Apple Watch will enjoy “an improved experience with better control and the ability to seamlessly connect to your speakers or devices.”

The new Apple Watch app will let users play music, skip tracks, easily rewind 15 seconds, plus let you connect to speakers and devices with Spotify Connect. Users will also get to easily access recently played songs, plus favourite new ones to save it to their collection.

The company says it has future plans to allow offline listening for your music and podcasts, a highly requested feature.

Spotify says their Apple Watch app will be rolling out “over the coming week”, and users should keep an eye out for version 8.4.79 of Spotify in the App Store–which is already available for Canadians.
