Earlier this week, Google released a new Tile for the YouTube Music app on Wear OS smartwatches. Now, it appears that the company has started rolling out a feature that lets you stream music on your smartwatch even when it is not connected to your smartphone.
Google has announced that it will soon allow users to stream music on the YouTube Music app via LTE or Wi-Fi on Wear OS smartwatches. It means that if you have a Wear OS smartwatch and the YouTube Music app on it, you can stream music even if you don’t download the music tracks beforehand and don’t have your phone connected to the watch.
If you have an LTE-equipped smartwatch, the YouTube Music app can stream music directly through a cellular connection. A lot of runners and cyclists would appreciate this feature. However, the feature requires a YouTube Music premium subscription.
After opening the YouTube Music app on Wear OS smartwatches like the Galaxy Watch 4 and the Galaxy Watch 4 Classic, users would be able to browse through music and then tap on a particular playlist or track to start the playback immediately. Google says that the feature will start rolling out this week, and many users haven’t received it yet.
