Spotify Launching Redesigned Apple Watch App With Several Improvements
Spotify today announced it is rolling out a redesigned Apple Watch app with a "new and improved listening experience" that allows users to more easily browse music and podcasts in "Your Library" and more quickly download music for offline playback.
In a blog post, Spotify said the new design includes larger artwork, new animations, the ability to swipe to like a song, a blue dot next to new podcast episodes, and more. The new design will require an updated version of the Spotify app rolling out on the App Store — it doesn't yet appear to be available for all users as of this writing.
As noted by The Verge, Spotify remains silent about its Hi-Fi audio tier that it promised to launch back in 2021. Apple Music offers lossless audio at no additional charge.

Now, I just wish they’d add support for Siri and HomePod.
Spotify couldn't be clearer that they're trying to punish Apple users with a suite of dodgy user experiences.
The fact they kicked off over no third-party Homepod access and now that it's available won't develop a third-party integration is hard proof that they're a bad faith actor.
