Spotify for tizen Samsung gear (v7.2.0.1250)

Recommended Posts

Spotify for tizen is going to offer the same as Spotify, which is, a digital music streaming service that gives you access to millions of songs, podcasts and videos from artists all over the world.

Spotify is immediately appealing because you can access content for free by simply signing up using an email address or by connecting with Facebook. If you’re not keen on monthly subscription fees for Spotify Premium, or just want to dip your toe in and test it out, it’s easy to get started and there’s no commitment.

The free version of Spotify can be accessed on PC, laptop and mobile phone, but the full service needs a Spotify Premium subscription.

Getting started with listening to music on Spotify is easy:

  1. Visit the Spotify website and sign-up. We’d recommend signing up with Facebook if you have an account as it’ll make it easier to find and follow friends, see what they’re listening to and share songs with them.
  2. Choose a subscription level. We’d recommend going for Spotify Premium as it gives you access to more features, is more flexible and will connect with more devices.
  3. Download and install the free Spotify application. There are versions for desktop and iPhone/iPad and Android phones.
  4. Sign into your account on those devices and get listening.

The basic setup is pretty straightforward but there’s much more to Spotify once you delve in and it gets smarter the more you listen.Samsung’s lineup of Tizen wearables are shockingly great devices, but the biggest downside to both the Gear S2 and the newer Gear S3 (review coming soon), is the lack of app support. Today, Tizen’s app store grows with the welcome and long-awaited addition of Spotify.

      Today at the Samsung Developer Conference the company announced that it would open its smart TV platform, Tizen TV, to third-party manufacturers.
      “With Tizen, consumers can stream content from hundreds of apps,” Sang Kim, Global Head of Smart TV Business Development said during the keynote. “For the first time we’re going to make the Tizen TV OS available to other manufacturers.” 
      According to Kim, over 100 million TVs currently support Tizen and while that’s a substantial number, this move could stem the flow of manufacturers like Hisense and TCL from rushing to Roku TV and Android TV platforms for their smart platforms. It could even increase the Bixby user base too, which is a key goal for Samsung. 
      So what, exactly, makes Tizen so appealing that TV makers would want to adopt it? Primarily its Samsung TV Plus platform which offers free content and integrates with over-the-top cable providers, as well as its large app library powered by developers (hence why the announcement was made at its developer conference).
      Unfortunately, beyond the announcement of news, Samsung isn’t offering any additional details – it’s not ready to announce potential partners, for example, nor is it ready to reveal when the first third-party Tizen TVs will be available.
      The silver lining? With CES 2020 right around the corner, more information is likely coming in two month's time.

      Rotary event handling, enabled via the bezel, is supported on the Tizen platform. A bezel is a term used to describe the outside frame of a device, and in the case of a Galaxy Watch, the bezel is the outer ring of the device, which can be rotated. Rotary events are triggered from the Galaxy Watch rotary component when the bezel is rotated clockwise or counterclockwise. The event for each rotation is measured in incremental units called “detents.”

      Bezel interactions can be used in a variety of ways, such as controlling the application page, controlling the snap list, changing the progress bar value, scrolling the page, changing the volume, and setting configurations such as date-time on the date-time picker.
      This blog discusses how to handle rotary events in Tizen web and native applications. In the following example, you’ll learn how to let a user interact with bezel by using the rotary event to receive or reject a call. The user rotates the bezel clockwise to receive the call and counterclockwise to reject it.

      Note: Because Galaxy Active devices do not have bezels, rotary features will not work on them.
      Prerequisites
      Tizen Web
      In the Tizen web application, add the following line in the config.xml file:
      <feature name="tizen.org/feature/input.rotating_bezel"/> Tizen Native
      In the Tizen native application, include the <system_info.h>header file to use the functions and data types of the system information API.
      #include<system_info.h> You also must add the following line to the manifest file:
      <feature name="http://tizen.org/feature/input.rotating_bezel">true</feature> Check capability
      Tizen Web
      In the Tizen web application, use the following line to check if the device supports rotary events or if it uses bezel:
      var isSupport = tizen.systeminfo.getCapability('http://tizen.org/feature/input.rotating_bezel'); console.log(' Bezel = ' + isSupport); The getCapability() function of the Tizen web API returns with information about whether or not the device supports bezel.
      Tizen Native
      In the Tizen native application, use the following code to check bezel capability:
      bool rotaryValue; int rotaryReturn; rotaryReturn = system_info_get_platform_bool("http://tizen.org/feature/input.rotating_bezel", & rotaryValue); if (rotaryReturn!= SYSTEM_INFO_ERROR_NONE) { dlog_print(DLOG_INFO, LOG_TAG, "Rotary error"); return; } dlog_print(DLOG_INFO, LOG_TAG, "Bezel: %s", value ? "Supported" : "Not supported"); Implementation
      Tizen Web
      Register the rotarydetent event. After registering an event, ev.detail.direction provides the direction value. If the value is CW, the bezel is rotated clockwise. If the value of direction is CCW, the bezel is rotated counterclockwise.
      document.addEventListener('rotarydetent', function(ev) { /* Get the direction value from the event */ var direction = ev.detail.direction; var textbox = document.querySelector('.contents'); box = document.querySelector('#textbox'); if (direction == 'CW') { /* Add behavior for clockwise rotation */ console.log('clockwise'); box.innerHTML ="clockwise"; } else if (direction == 'CCW') { /* Add behavior for counter-clockwise rotation */ console.log('counter-clockwise'); box.innerHTML ="counter-clockwise"; } }); Tizen Native
      Register the rotary event in the app using the following line:
      eext_rotary_event_handler_add(_rotary_handler_cb, ad); The handle function is defined using following code:
      Eina_Bool _rotary_handler_cb(appdata_s *data, Eext_Rotary_Event_Info *ev) { if (ev->direction == EEXT_ROTARY_DIRECTION_CLOCKWISE) { dlog_print(DLOG_DEBUG, LOG_TAG, "Rotary device rotated in clockwise direction"); } else { dlog_print(DLOG_DEBUG, LOG_TAG, "Rotary device rotated in counter-clockwise direction"); } return EINA_FALSE; } If the rotation direction is equal to EEXT_ROTARY_DIRECTION_CLOCKWISE, the bezel is rotated clockwise. Otherwise, the bezel is rotated counterclockwise.
      Demo
      Two sample apps are attached:
      • Rotary Native
      • Rotary Web
      Web
      When you run the web sample app and turn the bezel clockwise, the following text appears on the watch face:

      When you turn the bezel counter counterclockwise, “counterclockwise” appears on the watch face:

      Native
      When you run the native sample app and turn the bezel clockwise, the following text appears on the watch face:

      When you turn the bezel counterclockwise, the following text appears:

      For more information
      The bezel is the physical controller of some Samsung wearable devices. Understanding the physical characteristics of the bezel will help you design better interactions.
