Hi rogerpalmer - as an obsessively playlisting Spotify fan, I'm sorry you're in this situation. We know everyone would love a more detailed answer (and we'd love to give one!), but we don't have information to provide. The best recommendation we can make is to follow the page for Software updates: Samsung Gear S2 so that you'll be alerted as soon as the information is updated. FWIW, you're in good company with this ask and we've passed the feedback on that there's a lot of interest.
Why after no updates since April is there no information to provide? This is a terrible excuse. Can you please let me know who I can reach out to that can provide information on the possibility of ever getting updates to our watches so that they are usable with all the new features? Without Spotify, there is no way to stream music on the watch since Samsung discontinued Milk Music. It makes the watch unusable as a standalone streaming device when working out, which is why everyone purchased the watch.
Please let me know who runs the software update division of T-Mobile so we can get some information. At least tell us if no update is ever coming. Something instead of the same old, no one has any information. Someone must know something about updating devices at T-Mobile as I am easily able to get info about updating flagship Android devices.
Sorry, but 8 months of we have no information is not a valid excuse at this point.
Update came OTA this morning. Spotify, sleep tracking, reminders, Altimeter, Barometer, and more work like a champ. Thank you Tmo and Samsung!
