In the recent release of the operating system watchOS 4.3, the company has implemented a full-fledged support for the Apple Music service. Now, to listen to music from smartwatches, you do not need to have an iPhone nearby. Today we will look at how to configure this option.
Recall that the company has repeatedly experimented with the musical capabilities of Apple Watch. For example, in September, hours were deprived of the ability to broadcast music from the iPhone, allowing you to listen to only those songs that were on the device itself. Later this function returned, but now there is no special need for it since now the whole library is also on Apple Watch.
In order to start listening to music via Apple Music, it’s enough to have Bluetooth headphones and, of course, a trial or paid subscription to the service. All watch models are supported.
Let’s get started:
- You need to make sure that Apple Watch is completely disconnected from the iPhone. For reliability, you can turn off the Bluetooth module on your smartphone.
- Create a pair of headphones and Apple Watch. To do this, go to “Settings” → “Bluetooth” and create a pairing. If the headphones are already connected or you use AirPods, then you just need to select a source in AirPlay.
- After that, go to the Apple Music app on the clock. Choose the “Library”. This will be our entire music collection. In addition, there will be an opportunity to listen to radio stations.
