YouTube Music for Wear OS now supports streaming

Share This Post

Equally important is the fact that you’ll still need a YouTube Music Premium subscription to benefit from the streaming support feature introduced this week, just like you need one for downloading music on your mobile or wearable device. Google hasn’t provided a clear date for when Wear OS smartwatch users will be able to take advantage of streaming support, but the company did say it should pop in the YouTube Music app sometime this week.

This month sees the addition of additional capabilities to the YouTube Music app for Wear OS. Google stated today that users of YouTube Music for Wear OS will be able to stream songs via data/cellular very soon, after the addition of a new Recently Played tile to the app last week. Instead of downloading music to your phone, the YouTube Music app will allow users to stream music via LTE or Wi-Fi. It should be noted, however, that cellular streaming will not function on iOS devices.


  • This is the first standalone smartwatch app from YouTube Music that allows subscribers to download and stream music for ad-free listening even without their phones nearby. Additionally, the Wear OS app offers other benefits like Smart Downloads, which refreshes the songs users download to their watch whenever it’s connected to Wi-Fi.
