Can You Use Spotify on Fitbit? (You Can’t and Here’s Why!)

Before I purchased my new Fitbit Sense 2, I had to conduct online research to determine whether it still supported Spotify, which is the app I use to stream music.

It appears that the watch did away with Spotify because every user has commented that they could no longer stream or store music for offline playback.

A few years ago, Fitbit Watches supported several streaming services. Unfortunately, when March 31st, 2023 came, the Fitbit watches were no longer capable of supporting streaming music. The good thing is that even though the watch no longer supports streaming, it will still let you control any music app on your paired phone.

In simple terms, you can pause, play, and skip to the next or previous song on the music app on your phone from your Fitbit Versa, Sense, Luxe, Charge, or Inspire without any difficulty.

Why Did Fitbit Remove Spotify Music Support

The reason behind the decision is not yet known. If you ask me, I would say that Fitbit (now owned by Google) discontinued support for Spotify and music storage on March 31st to encourage consumers to opt for the Google Pixel Watch. Fortunately, with the Google Pixel Watch, you will be able to stream your favorite playlist on Spotify and store the songs you like for offline listening.

Which Fitbit Can Use Spotify?

Currently, Fitbit does not have a watch model that can install the Spotify Music app. Therefore, we don’t have a Fitbit that can use the Spotify app at this time. We hope that Fitbit, which is now a property of Google, will produce watches that support Spotify. Instead of purchasing a Fitbit watch, you may want to consider the Google Pixel Watch 2. With this smartwatch, you will be able to enjoy and download your favorite songs on Spotify.

Can I Use Voice Command to Control Spotify on My Fitbit?

We have the voice command or voice assistant feature on Fitbit Sense 2, Versa 4, Sense, Versa 3, and Versa 2. You can use it to set timers, check the weather, and set alarms. Unfortunately, Fitbit doesn’t support Spotify. So, no, you cannot use voice commands to control Spotify. You can’t even download the app onto the watch.

Can I Control the Volume of Spotify Playing on My Fitbit Versa

Yes, you can! With your Fitbit Versa 2, Sense 2, Versa 4, and Versa 3 connected to your phone, you can not only play, pause, skip a song, or go back to the previous song, but also reduce or increase the volume if it is too high or too low. To adjust the volume, go to the quick settings panel, find the volume control option, and adjust the level to your preference.

Do I Need An Internet Connection to Use Spotify on My Fitbit?

Fitbit watches no longer support the Spotify Music app, Deezer, and Pandora. Therefore, I see no need for the device to be connected to the internet. Fitbit watches stopped depending on the internet entirely when the music streaming feature was discontinued. On the other hand, even though internet access isn’t essential, you may need it when you want to change the clock or watch face on your Fitbit.

Can I Listen to Spotify On My Fitbit Without My Phone?

No, you cannot! Even though Fitbit does not support Spotify offline playbacks you can still use it to control the songs playing on the Spotify app on your phone; play, pause, skip, and adjust the volume.

How Do I Add Music To My Fitbit?

Gone are the days when you could download or add the songs you love to your Fitbit smartwatch. Since March 2023, Fitbit has discontinued support for internal storage. As a result, you are no longer able to add your favorite songs to your Fitbit Sense 2 or Versa 4. I would suggest that you explore other options, such as the Apple Watch, Samsung Watch, Garmin Watch, and Google Pixel Watch, among others.

Do Any Fitbit Watches Play Music?

You cannot play music directly on any Fitbit watch. Instead, you can only control the songs playing on the music app on your paired phone.

How Do I Log Into Spotify On My Fitbit

It is not possible to log in to one’s Spotify account from a Fitbit, as the app is no longer supported by Fitbit watches.

Final Thoughts

On March 31st, 2023, Fitbit users were no longer able to stream Spotify on their watches, unlike before. This is because Fitbit decided to discontinue support for apps and storage.

Currently, Fitbit watches can only control the music playing on your phone. 

If you want a watch that supports Spotify, I suggest considering other options, such as the Apple Watch, Google Pixel Watch, Samsung Galaxy Watch, or Garmin Watch. 

To summarize, Fitbit is not an option for Spotify Music. That’s all for today!
