Offline music onto WearOS devices (not on phone) needed.


Userlevel 4
Hi guys. Just recieved my Mobvoi Ticwatch Pro four days ago. I have been trying to figure out why Deezer is so badly build for Wear OS ­čĄö
First, it does not have a logic access to playlists. Only if you have played a playlist before on your phone, you can play again from Wear OS. When playing you are able to acces all playlists from the play screen on the wearable - but not from the Deezer on the wearable. Very confusing ­čśĽ!
Next, before Samsung are launching their upcoming Galaxy Watch (Gear S4 with Wear OS) I really think that it should be possible to store tracks offline directly onto the wearable! It is annoying to not be able to go for a run without your (huge) phone. It was the main reason for that I bought a wearable. I know that Spotify does support this feature!! ­čś▓ Even though it only has 4GB storage, it is plenty for a single playlist.
Make an entire Wear OS app, as everyone are launching Smartwatches based on Wear OS this summer! Even Armani has presented their collection!

It would be nice to be able to download songs to an Android Wear smartwatch for offline, smartphone-free use.
This would come very handy for outdoor runs for example, as some watches have integrated GPS trackers.

This idea is specific to Android Wear smartwatches.

Hello,

I have a watch "gear S3". I found spotify app but deezer is not present.
Could you develop an application for smartwatches ?

Thank you

Also using Deezer already for several years and just got mine TicWatch Pro, but am lacking Deezer on it! It would be a great advantage to have it separate on my watch.

Use Deezer via Smartwatch + Bluetooth device without Smartphone (as with Spotify)...
Please upgrade the Android Wear OS App with the function to listen to music on the smartwatch itself.
In the first step it would be great to be able to play at least online music (incl. Flow).
In the second step, offline music would also be an interesting feature, as also suggested here:

Any update on this? Been waiting for this feature for some time now!
Will be nice to have playlist or a flow download on the wear os watches for the run without smartphone
No news on this idea on wear os? On connected watches compatible with android like samsung, amzfit or wear os I only found galaxy watch with Spotify with this feature.

Hi @Erwan QUEINNEC

fyi Deezer is supported on Fitbit and Garmin watches (allowed offline playlists so you can play without your phone!)

Hi everyone, we're currently working on mechanics to have a standalone app for WearOS, first to be able to stream, then to offline tracks. Hopefully, it'll be available soon!

I just want to know if it is possible to listen to Deezer via your Iwatch without Iphone.

Hi there @MisterTonline 

Thank you for your input, moved your reply here. At the moment it isn't a possibility, but please vote for the idea :wink:

Any news as to when this might be coming? I'm training for a half marathon and only use my watch while running, no smart phone. Google Play music supports offline mode so I've been listening to old albums on there. Will switch across entirely if it isn't sorted soon!

Hi there @jswedge 

Thanks for your support. No timeline yet, this first quarter of the year is a bit tricky - as we're releasing features we've been working on for quite some time and bugs happen. But stay tuned, this is definitely something we want to release :thumbsup_tone2:

Hey all, it┬┤s Q2 now, any update on this? Would love to have that feature :)

Not in Q2, I'm afraid @Wear OS user but it hasn't been forgotten and replies like yours bump the thread up - don't forget to vote because we'd love to make this a reality :grin:

do you think it will be here before 2021
