The YouTube Music application is finally deployed on certain Wear OS 2 connected watches
After killing the Google Play Music app, Google left its YouTube Music subscribers in limbo thanks to the app’s absence on Wear OS, made worse by the search giant making it available on the Apple first. Watch. Previously exclusive in the Android world to Samsung’s recently launched Wear OS 3 Galaxy Watch 4 smartwatch series, Google has finally started making the YouTube Music app available to a small group of Wear OS 2 watches.
It’s hardly surprising that Mobvoi’s TicWatch Pro 3 and TicWatch E3 are eligible to download the YouTube Music app, as well as Fossil’s Gen 6 smartwatch, also powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform. And that’s about it, alas. It’s unclear if Google plans to make the app available for Wear OS 2 smartwatches powered by the Snapdragon Wear 3100 chipset.
If you have an unsupported Wear OS 2 smartwatch, you can try loading the YouTube Music app, but be aware that there is no guarantee of success. You can download the YouTube Music app on supported Wear OS 2 smartwatches via the Play Store link below.
