If you’re a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 user, you might have noticed that when you try to play music on Spotify, it will ask you to connect to a Bluetooth device. This means you either have to connect your watch to a TWS earphone or a Bluetooth speaker to listen to music. However, there is a way to bypass this limitation and play music on your watch speaker itself.

To do this, you need to install the Spotify app on both your Galaxy Watch 4 and your Android device. Once installed, pair the app on both devices by entering the code provided by the app. After pairing, you can play any music on the Spotify app on your watch. However, when you try to play music, you will see the Bluetooth option, which means you still can’t play music directly on your watch.

But here’s the trick: when you click on the play button, instead of selecting the Bluetooth option, click on the fast forward option. This will enable you to play music on your watch speaker itself. You can also increase the volume by clicking on the volume icon.

Alternatively, when you play music on your phone’s Spotify app, you can select your Galaxy Watch 4 as the connected device to play music directly on your watch. Note that you need to have a Spotify premium account to use this feature and download music on your watch.

This nifty little trick is a great way to listen to music without having to connect your watch to a Bluetooth device. It also gives you the flexibility to listen to music while on the go, without having to carry extra devices. Try it out on your Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 today!
