Step 1: Check for Compatibility

Before we proceed, it’s important to make sure that your Gear S3 is compatible with the Spotify app. Since the latest firmware update, all Gear S3 models (Classic and Frontier) are compatible with Spotify. If you haven’t updated your firmware, go ahead and do that first.

Step 2: Download the Spotify App

Now that we have confirmed compatibility, let’s move on to the fun part – downloading the Spotify app! Follow these simple steps:

  1. On your Gear S3, open the Galaxy Store app.
  2. Navigate to the search bar and type in “Spotify”.
  3. Tap on the Spotify app when it appears in the search results.
  4. Click on “Install” to begin the download.
  5. Wait patiently for the installation to complete.

Step 3: Log in to Your Spotify Account

Once the app is installed, it’s time to log in to your Spotify account so you can access all your favorite playlists and enjoy your music on the go. Here’s how:

  1. Open the Spotify app on your Gear S3.
  2. You will be prompted to enter your Spotify username and password.
  3. Enter your credentials using the on-screen keyboard.
  4. Click on “Log In” to proceed.

Step 4: Sync Your Playlists

Now that you’re logged in, let’s sync your playlists to your Gear S3 so you can listen to them without needing your smartphone nearby. Here’s how:

  1. On your Gear S3, go to the Spotify app.
  2. Navigate to the “Settings” menu.
  3. Select “Sync Music” to start the syncing process.
  4. Wait for the sync to complete.

It’s important to note that the syncing process may take some time, especially if you have a large number of playlists. Be patient, and soon you’ll have all your favorite tunes at your fingertips.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Music on the Go!

Now that you have Spotify installed and your playlists synced, it’s time to hit the road and enjoy your music on the go! With Spotify on your Gear S3, you can control playback, skip tracks, and adjust volume right from your wrist. It’s like having your own personal DJ wherever you go.


Installing Spotify on Gear S3 has been a game-changer for me. I can now listen to my favorite tunes while I’m out for a run or even during my daily commute, without needing to carry my phone. The convenience and freedom it offers are truly remarkable.
