Spotify users with an Apple Watch are in for a bit of a problem. The update to watchOS 9 has left them no ability to stream music directly from your watch.

I blamed this bug, which I personally experienced over the last few weeks, on a natural issue with the iOS 16 and watchOS 9 beta. In the final stages of their development and shortly before their official release, but with a beta at last. cape.

No solution in the public version

However, the arrival of the final versions has not solved this problem and when a user tries to listen to undownloaded music from his watch, no matter if it is connected to a WiFi network or a mobile network, he does not hear any songsalthough the progress bar moves as if you were playing it.

Spotify is notifying of this incident with a brief statement in which it blames Apple for this problem, and in fact urges it to implement a solution. In the meantime, we recommend against upgrading to watchOS 9 in order to keep this feature trouble-free. A rather delicate recommendation.

Apple’s watchOS 9 introduces a bug that will cause streaming of Spotify content on the Apple Watch to stop working. We encourage Spotify users with an Apple Watch not to install the watchOS 9 update until Apple implements a fix. Already affected users can download content on the Apple Watch and listen to it offline or stream it from the phone.

In iOS 16 we can open any app from the lock screen.  So we can personalize ours

watchOS 9.1 beta is now being released to developersso a next public version should be a few weeks away from being released, and perhaps, with it, the solution to this issue.

We encountered a similar incident in the past, in the early years of the Apple Watch: an iOS update brought a bug for the API for notifications to Bluetooth devices and third-party watches of the time, such as the Pebble, lost a part of their functions until Apple, months later, fixed the problem in a subsequent software update.
