Spotify coming to Android Wear next month

During the opening Google I/O 2015 keynote on Thursday, Google said that several major new apps are going to gain Android Wear support soon. It pointed to Foursquare and Uber as two examples, but Spotify is also about to make its way to your wrist.

The company explained some of the new features in a recent blog post, noting that Android Wear support will be added in June. The Android Wear app will allow users to browse, select and play music right from their wrists and will include the Discover feature that helps users find new music. The company didn’t discuss whether or not it will allow users to store music for offline playback through Bluetooth speakers; that may be limited to Google Play Music.

You can see what the UI will look like in the image above, which depicts Spotify running on the Sony SmartWatch 3. The company has not yet released support for the Apple Watch, so this is certainly one area where Android Wear has a leg-up on Apple’s wearable.
