New Spotify for Apple Watch App Announced!

Spotify is introducing a new app for the Apple Watch, giving you the ability to access and control your music and podcasts right on your Apple Watch. Here are the full details!

 

New Spotify for Apple Watch App Announced!

Spotify just announced a new Spotify for Apple Watch app. With this new app, users can enjoy an improved experience with better control and the ability to seamlessly connect to speakers or devices. This is a work in progress, with Spotify planning to add the ability to listen to your music and podcasts offline.

More activities – more control

Smartwatches let us access the world with a flick of our wrists. Ready to start your run? Hit play from your Apple Watch without having to wrangle your phone out of its running case.

Running into a friend as you head into the grocery store? Tap pause to grab a cart and a chat.

Not feeling a slow song during your birthday party? Skipping to the track that matches your mood and activity is now as easy as checking your notifications.

Or, while listening to your favorite podcast, easily rewind 15 seconds to catch that detail you missed. It’s all right there on the watch face.

Speaking of parties, easily connect your speakers or devices via Spotify Connect to effortlessly DJ from your watch.

 

Easier access – easier discovery

This new integration with Apple Watch makes it easy to access recently played songs, no matter where your phone is. And if you discover a new favorite track, all you need to do is tap the ♡ icon on your watch screen to save it. You can then stream it over and over again.

This new experience will be released to Apple Watch users in the upcoming week. Be sure to install the latest version (v.8.4.79) of Spotify. Alternatively you can download it on the App Store. Look out for more updates soon.

The Spotify Q&A Session With Sunita Kaur

Earlier this week, we were invited to an exclusive media session with Sunita Kaur, the Managing Director for Spotify Asia and Benjamin Chelliah, Head of PR for Spotify Asia. Join us for this exclusive Q&A session!

 

The Spotify Q&A Session With Sunita Kaur

Spotify hosted this media session to provide updates on the listening habits and statistics of Spotify users both in Malaysia and around Asia. During the session, Sunita shared that :

[adrotate banner=”4″]
  • 1 in 4 people with internet access are streaming on Spotify.
  • Over the past 12 months, Malaysians have streamed at least 7.5 billion minutes worth of music.
  • Malaysians spend on average 148 minutes per day streaming on Spotify
  • The most streamed artists are The Chainsmokers, Ed Sheeran and The Weeknd.
  • The most listened to albums are Starboy, Shape of You and 24k Magic.
  • The top streamed songs are Shape of You, Say You Won’t Let Go and Paris.
  • The peak stream period is between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.
  • The most streamed genres are Pop, Hip Hop and EDM/Dance.

Sunita also shared that Mr. James Yeow, Deputy President of the Malaysian Society for Music in Medicine (MSMM) and Senior Lecturer at HELP University Psychology Department, helped Spotify in creating specific playlists for different times of the day, like :

  • The Early Birds (5 am to 9 am) – In Malaysia, “Fun Workout” is the one of the more popular playlist in the morning. Spotify users love high intensity pop to kick start their morning routine. Other early bird favourites include, strong beats from “Good Morning Malaysia!” while “Morning Stroll” shows that not all who wake up early are in a rush to get about.
  • The Busy Bees (9 am to 12 pm) – It is interesting to note that, the “Deep Focus” playlist is frequently streamed at this time. Malaysian users also love “Acoustic Favourites” and “It’s a Hit”, a wonderful mix of the hottest songs packed together to keep them company through the morning rush.
  • The Midday Zombies (12 pm to 5 pm) – It comes as no surprise that “Pop Waktu Kerja” and “Top Hits Malaysia” are popular playlists during these times, especially since they are perfect break time music for those in need of a little boost. Many also enjoy their “Light & Easy” playlist to breeze through their afternoons with light pop.
  • The Night Riders (6 pm to 10 pm) – Malaysian users love to unwind with upbeat house tunes from our “Night Rider” playlist. On that upbeat note, Malaysians definitely know how to make the most out of their nights with “Rock Jiwang” and “Party Life”.
  • The Dream Chasers (10 pm to 1 am) – Playlists such as “Sleep” and “Nature Noise” encourage deep sleep by turning our busy beta brain waves into anxiety-free alpha or dreamlike delta waves. Whilst, popular and sedative music around 60 beats per minutes found within the “Before Tidur” playlist is also a great way to elicit deep sleep.
