Fitbit has announced that from March 31 it will no longer be possible to use the Deezer and Pandora applications on its connected watches, even those that previously allowed it.
With its latest connected watches, the Versa 4 and Sense 2, Fitbit had already bypassed certain features that were present in earlier models. Therefore, it is impossible to use watches to control music playback. It is also impossible to install third-party apps from music streaming platforms.
Now, to clear things up, Fitbit has announced an update to its Fitbit Sense, Fitbit Versa 2, and Fitbit Versa 3, as reported. 9to5Google. In detail, the firm owned by Google since 2021 indicates in an email that as of March 31 it will no longer be possible to use the Pandora and Deezer applications on these three connected watches. ” You will no longer be able to download Pandora stations or add Deezer playlists to your device, or play a song you previously downloaded.“, indicates the email sent by Fitbit.
Only Spotify remains available
This possibility of listening to music directly from your watch, without having to take your smartphone with you when you go to train, has been supported for several years. For its part, Deezer also communicates about the availability of its application on Fitbit watches and even offers three free months of Deezer Premium for Fitbit watch users.
Fitbit’s decision follows not only the abandonment of music features on its last two watches, but also the end of the ability to transfer music files from last year. However, Fitbit is still pointing to Spotify for music streaming, especially on the Fitbit Sense product sheet:“Download hundreds of fitness, sports and entertainment apps, from Uber and United Airlines to Spotify and TRX”. Also remember that the Fitbit Sense 2 and Versa 4 do not allow you to download third-party applications.
Fitbit hasn’t provided any explanation for the end of support for the two music streaming apps on its previous models.
