Google and Samsung decided to collaborate to make Wear OS a little bit lighter compared to the current software version. For the past few months, many users were already looking forward to the giant tech firm's upcoming innovations for its popular smartwatch system.
Now, Google confirmed that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 Series offers the new Google Maps and YouTube Music apps. The company said that these two new applications are specifically designed for Galaxy Watch 4 models with the new Wear OS3.
This means that wearables that still have the older root OS2 would not be able to enjoy them. On the other hand, many consumers are quite excited since the new YouTube Music for Wear OS3 is considered the first music application for smartwatches.
Google Wear OS3 Receives First Smartwatch Music App
However, the giant search engine reiterated that not everyone would enjoy the new smartwatch music app. Even if you already own a Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, you still need a YouTube Premium subscription.
"YouTube Music Premium subscribers can access over 80 million songs and thousands of playlists in the new YouTube Music app on Wear OS," said Google.
The tech developer added that the new exclusive music app allows you to listen to your favorite songs even when there is no internet connection.
Aside from this, Google also explained that the Samsung Galaxy Watch 4 series processor also has an advanced smart download feature, which updates your wearable when you add new songs and connect to a new WiFi service.
Is YouTube Music Premium Worth It?
Robots.Net explained that if you have a tight budget, the best option you can choose is the basic YouTube subscription. However, the Premium version is still the best choice if you want to get the most of YouTube's features.
On the other hand, YouTube offers a free trial to those new users to know if the Premium subscription could suit their needs.
