What you need to know
- Google has launched the YouTube Music Apple Watch app.
- It is a companion app to the iPhone app that will allow users to control playback and more.
- It does not support offline playback or direct streaming.
The app will allow YouTube Music subscribers to control playback of the YouTube Music app on their iPhone right from their wrist. In addition to controlling playback, you will also be able to add songs to your library and stream to other devices using Chromecast.
The new Apple Watch app support complications, so you'll now be able to add YouTube Music to your watch faces. The app does not, however, support downloading songs directly to the watch or to stream directly to the watch.
