Spotify at present doesn’t really possess an official app for the Apple Watch, many of us would gave noticed that, this was quite a step back for Spotify. Well that is about to change. Popular app developer Andrew Chang is partnering with Spotify Watch to create an official Spotify app for Apple watch.
Some time ago Chang made the news when he initially created a third party app Spotify app. He called it “Spotty”. But Spotify at first took slight irriatation at Andrew Chang’s Spotty and reached out to Chang that the name was too close to that “Spotify”. Chang had to change the name to “Snowy”. But after examining Chang’s works, Spotify was impressed and called out to Chang this time not to scold him but partner him to create the company’s official app.
Talks between Spotify and Chang extended past four weeks but Chang had on Reddit thrilled fans of the app with the announcement.
“I’m thrilled to announce that I’ll be working closely with Spotify to bring Snowy to the Apple Watch as part of an official Spotify iOS app… I can’t wait to take things to the next level with the expertise and tools available at Spotify.”
We can’t for now however nail a timeframe to when we will be expecting this app officially on Apple Watch but measuring from assurances by Chang “while [he] can’t give any estimates as to when it’ll be available… a Spotify Apple Watch companion app is in the pipleline.” Well, we can’t wait.
