Google releases YouTube Music for Wear OS
Google has officially launched the YouTube Music Wear OS app for two Samsung smartwatches, Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
Following its recent closure of the Google Play Music on Wear OS, Google has decided to migrate its music streaming services to Youtube Music. However, the app is only available for the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic.
In a hands-on review from 9to5Google, the media website noted that the Youtube Music App on Wear OS comes with some difficulties. It only allows playback of downloaded music and offers no support for online streaming or smart controls for the smartphone app. Moreover, music can only be downloaded when the smartwatch is charging.
Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 and Galaxy Watch 4 Classic can download the app via Google Play Store directly from their smartwatches.
