Many Apple Watch owners have been waiting for the official Spotify app to arrive and with good reason. It’s the most widely used music streaming service in the world, even more so than Apple’s own music streaming service, so there certainly exists a demand for an Apple Watch app. While Spotify is yet to say anything on the matter, a new report suggests that the official Spotify for Apple Watch release is expected to take place this June.
The report cites an “anonymous and unverified tipster” who claimed to have been personally involved in the development of Spotify for Apple Watch. The tipster claimed that the app is going to be announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2018 that’s due to take place in June.
It’s further claimed that the Spotify app is going to be one of the examples that Apple uses to demonstrate its new StreamKit framework which will enable Apple Watch models with cellular connectivity to receive push notifications from third-party applications even when they’re not paired to an iPhone.
StreamKit is likely going to be a part of watchOS 5 which is the next major update for Apple’s smartwatch. WWDC 2018 kicks off on June 4th so we’ll have to wait until then to find out for sure whether or not Spotify is finally coming to the Apple Watch.
