YouTube Music gets Apple Watch companion app

Google on Thursday released a new YouTube Music app for the Apple Watch that will let users control playback on their smartphones from their wrists.

Like other streaming platforms on watchOS, the YouTube Music app is basically a remote for the full app on an iPhone. It allows users to perform basic functionality like control playback and browse their libraries.

It also comes with a complication that Apple Watch users can add to their watch faces, though not all faces support it, and a shortcut that lets users cast a song from a smartphone to a speaker.

There are some limitations, including the fact that the app doesn’t currently support offline playback on the Apple Watch.

Users can download the YouTube Music app here.
