YouTube Music has finally gotten a Wear OS app, and here's how you can start using it on your smartwatch.
YouTube Music will soon enable free users to enjoy their music or podcasts without having to leave the app open on their phones.
A developer has ported the YouTube Music app to a smartwatch running Wear OS 2.0, but it suffers from a poorly optimized UI and other compromises.
YouTube Music for Wear OS is compatible only with Samsung’s Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatches, and even sideloading the app onto older Wear OS smartwatches won't do any good.
YouTube Music has been absent from Wear OS since it replaced Google Play Music. That problem has finally been fixed, but only for an elite few.
Google has improved YouTube Music's playlist discoverability by surfacing both user-generated and editor-curated playlists directly to listeners.
Google Play Music is being updated on the Play Store to give users the option to hide the app from their app drawer if it came preinstalled.
