Currently Spotify has no official application for Apple’s smartwatch Apple Watch. It seems that finally will change. The private developer Andrew Chang has created an unofficial Spotify app for the watch named “Spotty”, which offers offline listening.

After 9to5Mac wrote about it his popularity has increased significantly and thus attracted the attention of the very Spotify. People from the company have contacted the developer about the fact that the name is very close to the official “Spotify”.

Then he changed to “Snowy”, but after a while the company connect with him to help with the development of a official application. Negotiations with Chang and Spotify lasted over a month. Yesterday he announced on Reddit the final result.

“Hi all, thanks for your patience and understanding. 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. Spotify’s powerful iOS SDK made it possible to develop Snowy, but I can’t wait to take things to the next level with the expertise and tools available at Spotify. While I can’t give any estimates as to when it’ll be available, you can rest assured that a Spotify Apple Watch companion app is in the pipeline.” said Chang.

At this stage there is no information on when to expect the final product from the partnership between Spotify and the developer.

In March, Spotify announced that it had hit 50 million paid subscribers, growing steadily from the 40 million it had in September 2016. As its rival, Apple Music has shown impressive growth since its launch in 2015, boasting 20 million paid subscribers in December 2016 and beating Spotify in the realm of monthly unique users thanks to Apple Music’s lengthy three-month free trial given to every new subscriber.
