As the demand for more connectivity with technology rises, the need to maintain a distance from technology also increases. Having that said, the Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch is the best watch device users can own.
In such a situation, users have been looking for ways to reduce their contact with technology, all while still being able to do things they typically do.
With a solution provided by Tech Times, users can now listen to their favorite Spotify tracks offline directly from their Samsung Galaxy Smartwatches.
Listening to Spotify offline
Ever since the birth of Spotify, offline listening to music has been restricted to premium users only. Unfortunately, this is not a solution that lets users get around the premium subscription.
After installing the Spotify application on the users’ smartphones and logged in with their premium account, the smartphone and smartwatch connection setup can now begin.
The setup process varies within the model of Samsung Galaxy Watch; it would either be logged in automatically from the smartphone or be required to type the credentials.
The next step is to go to Spotify’s Settings page on the watch and change it to from Remote to Standalone mode.
The smartwatch will ask the user to pair the smartphone one more time around. Once done, the user can now download songs remotely on the watch if one has a premium subscription.
To download the playlist’s songs, users can go to the Your Music section and toggle the Download option.
Even without a premium membership, users can still listen to Spotify tracks without the smartphone’s presence, but only if internet connectivity in the watch is existent.
Samsung Galaxy Smartwatch: Other compatible applications
An excellent alternative to Spotify for the Galaxy Watch is “iGear Radio”. The pro version of iGear Radio can stream over 20,000 stations without the need for a smartphone.
Another application to watch out is “Map My Run”. Apart from the in-built fitness applications in the Galaxy Watch, it is one of the few decent fitness applications in the Galaxy Store. Map My Run allows users to start or stop runs, and track them with the built-in GPS.
Furthermore, users can play games like Galactica on the Galaxy Watch, which could be a good time killer.
The Samsung Galaxy Watch also has a built-in speaker and microphone, which gives it support for digital assistants, according to a report by Android Police.
Another application users can download is “Talk to Alexa”, the built-in Bixby voice assistant in the Galaxy smartwatch.
