Many people purchase Android wear because they can use it to control Spotify on the phone. For example, people can play, pause, skip tracks, control the volume, play from library, Browse new releases, top lists, playlists, and Genres & Moods.
Play Spotify Radio on it.
Android Wear needs to be connected to your phone with Bluetooth. Then open Spotify on your phone and start playing any song. You can now see what you are listening to on your wrist. You can pause the current track or play next/previous tracks. Swipe up to access more Spotify or swipe right skip songs and control volume. Swipe right again to select Your Library, Browse, or Radio.
However, Android Wear is only compatible with Spotify Premium. If you are a free user, you can’t use your Android wear to control Spotify on the phone. You may wonder, is there any way to use Android wear with Spotify free account? The answer is yes.
Android Wear users Play Music as its default music player. Play Music not only allows you to enjoy music in its own catalog, it also allows you to upload up to 50,000 songs for free. So you can download Spotify first and then upload them to Play Music to enjoy on Android Wear.
Android Wear allows you to transfer local music to it from Google Play Music, so if you can download Spotify songs to your local computer and then upload to Google Play Music, you can then transfer them to your Android Wear and enjoy them anywhere without phone. Since you have to use Play Music to sync music with your Android Wear watch anyway, this might be a good excuse to upload your music library to Google if you haven't already.
However, Spotify songs downloaded with premium are DRM protected and can’t be moved anywhere. To download DRM-free Spotify songs, please download and install Boilsoft Spotify Downloader.
